How to prepare your iPhone and iPad?

  1. Update iPhone to iOS 17.0.3 so as to have the latest version available and generate as few errors as possible;
  2. Remove any Errors on your iPhone;
  3. Make a safety backup so you don’t lose your data (you can find info on the iPhone errors link).

Do you have the beta version?

If you own one of the beta versions of iOS 17, available for developers and public beta testers, you will have to perform a complete reset of the software, in order to completely remove all the errors generated by these test versions, which I remind you SHOULD NEVER BE INSTALLED FOR PLAY .

In short, wait for the new update, because we are working for you with Apple, like every year, to make it the best possible.
