You're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to restore iTunes backup to the iPhone 6S Plus.
Before you begin, connect your phone and computer using the Lightning cable.
Then, make sure the iPhone is selected at the top left corner of the screen when you are in iTunes.
Additionally, "Find my iPhone" must be turned off before your iPhone can be restored.
If you try to restore backup with "Find my iPhone" turned on, a popup message will appear prompting you to turn it off. In order to turn off "Find my iPhone", click the gear-shaped "Settings" icon on your iPhone.
In the Settings menu, click on iCloud.
You may have to scroll down a bit to locate the option that says "Find My iPhone".
Click on "Find My iPhone" once.
At the top of the "Find My iPhone" screen, click the switch at the top to turn it off.
When the switch is grey, this feature is turned off. If the switch appears with a green highlight, it is turned on.
To turn off this feature, you will be prompted to enter in your Apple ID and password.
Once your information is entered, "Find My iPhone" will be turned off. Then, you can return to iTunes on your Mac and click on "OK".
With "Find My iPhone" turned off on your iPhone, go back to iTunes and click the blue button that says "Restore Backup" on the iPhone screen.
A pop-up box will appear with a drop down menu.
You can select this drop down menu to choose which backup you want to restore.
For this tutorial, I will choose the latest backup.
Below the drop down menu, we can see that my latest backup was today at 4:09 PM. When you have selected the backup you want to use, click on "Restore".
In order to proceed, you will be prompted to enter your password.
When your password is typed in the text box, click on "OK".
Then, your iPhone screen will show "Restore in Progress".
