    Hi. I encrypted my backup. I'm trying to restore the backup to a new 7 plus. It says 'enter the password to unlock your iPhone back up'. I enter the password I set to encrypt the backup. It says password is incorrect. I'm certain it's right. Is it asking for some other password: Apple ID per, other, etc? Any workaround?

    I realise this is an old thread ... did you find a way?

    I've had a similar issue in the past, and was not able to find a way around, other than remembering the password.

    hi sorry. i just saw this. but no. i knew the password except forgot which letters were capitalized. so i kept going till i got it. fortunately itunes doesn't self erase after x number of attempts!
