Hi, there! I have got an iPhone 5c a couple of months ago, and I got well with it until yesterday I deleted some notes by mistake. I wanted to restore the iPhone with iTunes backup at that time, but iTunes wouldn’t allow me to do that by ignoring my iPhone when I plugged it into computer. Could anyone help me please? Thanks in advance.

When coming up with this problem, the first thing that the users need to do it to check the USB cable to see whether it is workable. If the USB cable is good, then they will want to find another computer to check out whether the iPhone can be detected by the computer. If the iPhone can be detected, then the problem may be the iTunes itself.
