Data Loss After Update to iOS 12
"Last night I decided to back up my daughter's iPad to iTunes on my Mac, something I do from time to time. The computer asked me if I wanted to update the iPad to the latest version of iOS, and I said yes without thinking much about it. Everything seemed to go fine, but then at the very end, I was told to press the iPad's home button to attempt data recovery. What the heck? Nervous that I had somehow lost data on my daughter's iPad, I pressed the button as instructed and crossed my fingers. However, after the update, my iPad data got lost. All of the data are gone! I hope that anyone could give me some suggestions or help me get the lost data back as soon as possible."
