So backup via alternatives like IRIP (see google) and google this -> ITUNES ALTERNATIVES.
For about a year I have resisted temptation to update my Iphone 5s everytime I plug it into Itunes on my lappy which is a bit dated now and on Vista OS.
Last night I gave in and let it update, whilst it was doing it I was faffing on Itunes with my music. When it had finished, I plugged the phone back in to update the changes I had made, Itunes then announced my Itunes needed updating also in order to recognise my phone so I checked for new updates but it had the latest version.
Confused, I investigated this online and it turns out I cannot update it ever again because newer versions require Windows 7.
I downloaded the program from Windows that assess whether or not this was possible on my laptop which it is if I update this that and the other program at great expense and really not worth it in my opinion.
So as I have reluctantly ruled this option out am I to assume my Itunes and Iphone will never be able to talk to each other again unless I buy another laptop with Windows 7 or an Apple lappy as I guess I can't undo the update on my phone?
Please can someone help me find a resolution to this?
I did think about factory resetting the phone but worried I will lose stuff (
