  • Restore the backed up data to the device will not overwrite or clear the original contents on the device. If you restore the same contents to the device more than once, it will result in duplicate contents on the device.

  • When the photos in the device are in synchronization state, please do not perform any restore operations of photos, which may cause restore failure.

  • When you restore the contents in Messages successfully, your Apple device will be restarted automatically, you’ll need to do some settings to enter into the system again.
