The i Pod changed the music and electronics industries when it was first introduced way back in 2001.
It is credited with ushering in the age of "connected devices," and has held a huge market share of around 70% for years.
It only semi-restores the version that is already running on the device.
I personally tried the Semi Restore tool and to my surprise it worked as advertised.
However, newer devices like the i Pad, i Phone, and i Pod touch will let you set up the device without i Tunes, as long as you have Wi-Fi around and have i OS 5 or above preloaded.
You can also perform software updates and backups over Wi-Fi, whereas older i Pods and i Pod touches still need a wired connection to i Tunes.
The tool worked just as intended and I am now able to connect to i Tunes normally. Here’s how you can Semi Restore your your i Phone, i Pad or i Pod touch without upgrading to i OS 7.1 First of all you need to download Semi Restore tool on your device.
Currently it is only available for Windows operating system. The restore process should now begin on your connected device.
Then i Tunes will back up your i Phone data to the computer.Want to restore your i Phone 7/SE/6/5/4 without upgrading to the latest i OS 10.1.1 or i OS 9/8?With the daily usage of your i Phone or i Pad, more and more data are gathered on your i OS device.Nevertheless, there are millions of people who still use them, and one of the most common issues they run into is caused by co-dependency.If you want to put music on your i Pod, you pretty much have no choice but to connect and sync it to i Tunes on your Mac or Windows computer.
