I am trying to restore from previous backup on my iPhone 5 after upgrading it to 7.0.3. I have tried different options but after the restore I do not see my email settings, camera roll, messages history, call history, etc. It looks like restore did not take place.
What is the correct procedure to restore from backup. Here is what I did:
Go to settings on the phone and "Erase all". This takes the phone back to factory settings.
Then bring up the phone. Hello screen comes up. At some point it shows three options: New phone, restore from iCloud, restore from iTunes.
I select "restore from iTunes". Then I see a prompt to connect to computer.
I connect to computer. iTunes comes up and prompts me to Restore and presents the older backup version. I pick the correct version. Starts restore.
On the phone, I see "Restore in progress".
After this process is completed, I see the iPhone is back into "Hello screen". Also I see the sync icon rolling on the top screen.
Computer shows "Syncing apps". And it is syncing all of my 145 apps.
I am not sure why syncing of apps is needed here. Doesn't restore from backup, restore the apps, settings, camera roll, etc? In that case a separate sync of apps should not be needed.
After this sync of apps process is over, I see the phone is still in "Hello screen". The next screen is to connect Wifi. The next screen shows the "Set up iphone" with the three options - setup as new phone, restore from icloud backup, restore from iTunes backup.
What should I select now (I just went through a restore)? Looks like I am being sent in circles !
