    Hello!

    So I'm touring the UK at the moment and only have my ipad and phone for tech. The phone has been bugging for a while now to update the OS so I cleared some space and set it going only to have it go to the cable and itunes logo part way through. What can I do please? I need my phone as it's used for all my business dealings and there is stuff on there that isn't backed up (voice recordings from that day etc). Can anyone please help me? Holding down the home button and off switch hasn't managed to bypass it. I can't lose this material.

    Thank you

    You'll probably need to find a computer & connect to iTunes. I'm not aware of any other options.

    Your iPhone has been placed into recovery mode. You will need to connect your device to a computer and initiate the iTunes app to recover. Alternatively, "from what I've read", you can use TinyUmbrella to exit out of recovery mode w/out losing your data, but you will still need to connect the device to a computer.

    Regardless how you go about it, you're going to need a computer to put your phone back in functioning order.
