iPhone Freezes When Restoring? Stops At Apple Logo? Fail Errors? Fix Backup File
So how to fix this restore problem? There are a few ways to tackle this issue, all of which i have tried many times. But you have to tread carefully otherwise you can risk losing all your data. Especially if your iTunes restore file has become corrupt and not compatible with your iPhone anymore.
You could try updating to the latest version of iTunes, and see if this will fix your problem. So shut down your computer, restart, and before you try again, log into your iTunes account, making sure you are using your correct Apple ID account. And update your iTunes version through the internet.
If you are worried about doing this, because it may cause your iTunes to lose its previous data, then i would recommend using this third party iPhone restore/backup extractor software. Which could save your iPhone data and files. This software can actually open up your corrupt or frozen backup file, and allow you to view and save all and any of your files at anytime. It is a very handy piece of software to own, and can save you from years of lost data on your iPhone. Although it is not a free download, it saved me from losing very important documents for work, and also photos that i needed. So it is well worth it.
So for a quick fix, and to save your iPhone from freezing and failing, i really recommend trying it before you lose all your files. Once you have done this, and saved all your files, then you can use this iPhone backup tool to fix and restore your iPhone again. Remember, when in doubt, and you get restore errors again, you can always use this software again to save your files in the future.
You can use this tool to fix up your backup file, reconfigure your files, save it, and then try restoring again from there. This has worked for me, if you need anymore help with restoring your frozen iPhone then let me know!
