Using Recovery Mode (i Phone 7)Using Recovery Mode (i Phone 6S and Older)Using Cydia on a Jailbroken i Phone Community Q&A This wiki How teaches you how to restore a previous backup on your i Phone without updating it to the latest version of i OS in the process. i read somewhere that 'updating' is really just a way for Apple to see what songs you have and if they've been downloaded illegally. updates generally happen when apple comes out with something new for the ipods (such as the letters when scrolling fast in the video ipods)...comes across a bug and fixes it.......far as i know they have no way of knowing what songs you have and if they were downloaded legally...Updating apps/games to the latest version before i OS 9 update seems necessary.Because not all i OS 7 or i OS 8 supported apps can run properly on i OS 9 devices.The new i OS 11 will come out this September, if you are interested in it, you can go to this Everything You Need to Know About i OS 11 post to get all the information.Like the new features, how to install i OS 11, how to speed up i OS 11 i OS 11 problems and fixes, and downgrading i OS 11 to i OS 10, etc.Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi and running the latest version of i OS -- i OS 8.4.1.
