The big thing over the past few days is the iPhone iOS 5 “update.” Awesome right? The new features are great. Well, along with that awesomeness have been some upset users as they have seen their apps disappear, music gone, contacts went poof, and worse, their photos were wiped from their computer. I know people that had these happen when they did the update and these are going to be few and far between, but when it happens to you it is a heartbreaking situation.
As new updates come out, they are great and really expand the use of our devices. It is amazing and I love it. But remember one little thing when you do any updates to your extended items.
BACKUP YOUR COMPUTER.
Always do a backup of your computer before doing a major update like the iPhone had this past week. Take the time to do it even though you are so excited to have the latest and greatest. It is a good habit to get into every week or so anyway. Start the backup before work, then when you come home it does not take any time from your day and your computer is safe.
