Avoid data loss when unlocking an iPhone.
If your iPhone has been disabled, the only way to get into it again is to restore it or reinstall the software, both of which will result in the loss of all data. Thus, after unlocking the iPhone, the only way to ensure that no data is lost is to restore the device’s most recent backup.
