Mistake. Use a non-original charger or charge only using a cable
If you often use a cheap non-original charger for iPhone or iPad, use a purely car charger to charge your device (there is simply no time to charge at home), and also constantly charge gadgets via USB, then you will probably have to visit a service center in the near future.
Possible consequences of using a low-quality charger with iPhone and iPad:
- Slow charging;
- Failure of the storage battery;
- Failure of the U2 power supply chip;
- Fires and explosions of both chargers and the iPhone and iPad themselves.
Mistake. Don’t use a passcode, Touch ID, or Find My iPhone
Even before the launch of sales of the iPhone 5s with a Touch ID fingerprint sensor in Cupertino, it was stated that most users had not been able to teach the basics of security. About half of the owners of Apple smartphones and tablets ignored password protection and probably continued to do so after the appearance of a fingerprint scanner.
The means of protecting user data in modern iPhones and iPads (Face ID, lock password, Touch ID fingerprint sensor, as well as the Find iPhone function) allow you to reliably protect your personal data and the device itself from strangers

Mistake. Leave it all night long
No one will argue that leaving your smartphone or tablet on charge all night is very convenient in the morning, always with a full battery. However, this topic still causes a lot of controversy. Many experts argue that leaving your iPhone or iPad turned on after a full charge is harmful to your device’s battery. With frequent use of this method of charging the device, the battery will fail faster (in detail).
From numerous statements from experts collected on the Internet, it can be concluded that the maximum efficiency of lithium-ion batteries is observed at a charge level of 20 to 80%. This is probably why Apple prompts users to use the power saving mode on iOS devices at 20% and automatically turns it off when the charge accumulates at 80%.
Mistake. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and 3G (4G) are always on
Iphones and iPads are smart enough to keep their wireless networks running on their own without wasting traffic or wasting their own batteries. However, even background processes often affect device resources. The gadget always has something to transfer to the servers, download, verify the tracking data of the user, update the inventory of advertising, etc.
Whenever possible, turn off unused Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and cellular data (3G, LTE), and follow our tips to significantly increase the duration and battery life of your smartphone.

Method: recovery via DFU
If all of the above methods turned out to be powerless, and error 4005 has not disappeared on the iPhone screen, then you can take a chance and restart the device in a special emergency mode of the DFU, which was developed by Apple in case of serious software failures of smartphones.
To do this, you need to follow several steps:
After that, a message should appear on the screen, prompting you to perform the recovery procedure. At its end, the problem should be resolved, however, in this case, the complete loss of the last data is likely to occur.
After completing all the manipulations, it is recommended to perform a full scan of the iPhone and computer for viruses.
Error 4005 when restoring and updating iPhone
Most often, the owners of the iPhone 4S turn to smartphone repair service centers, who complain about problems with the firmware. As a result, the irreplaceable gadget either does not turn on at all, or an error appears on the screen. Often, such breakdowns can lead to not the most pleasant consequences: the loss of all personal data or the complete failure of the phone (in this case, restoring the iPhone is impossible).
There are many reasons for such troubles. It is possible that a download error occurred or the user tried to install third-party software on the smartphone. Also, a fairly common cause of breakdown is a hardware malfunction, which can be caused by mechanical damage or moisture penetration into the iPhone 4S case.
However, this does not mean that in order to revive a smartphone, you need to spend money on expensive diagnostics. There is a chance to fix your phone yourself.
So, most often users are faced with an unknown error 4005. Let’s consider the probable reasons for the appearance of such an inscription and methods for solving the problem.
Method: changing the cable
Replacing the USB cable has already been written about earlier. However, it is worth considering a few more features of the cable error. In some situations, the wire may simply be damaged. However, even Apple certified cables may not work properly. Therefore, it is worth trying several different options before excluding such a cause of breakdown.
Before seeking qualified help, you should try the simplest method of solving most problems. If an error occurs during synchronization of several devices, then you need to restart both the iPhone itself and the PC. Typically, computers restart on their own, and the iPhone has to be turned off and on in forced mode. To do this, you must simultaneously hold down the power button and the Home key and wait about 10-15 seconds. After this time, a sudden shutdown of the smartphone should occur. After that, it is enough just to wait until the device is fully loaded and check if the 4005 error has disappeared.
If the problem persists, then it’s time for more serious action.
Cell phones, as well as laptop computers and tablets, are very often installed with anti-virus programs, firewalls, firewalls and other utilities necessary to protect user data. However, when flashing or restoring an iPhone, this software may perceive manipulations with the phone as an attempt to load virus software into it. In this case, very often various errors appear on the screen (4013, 9, 4005 and others), indicating a communication failure. To avoid troubles, you must disable all programs of this type during the device update.
Method: reinstall iTunes
If even after the procedure for updating the media player, error 4005 continues to flaunt on the screen, then this may be caused by communication failures. The only solution in this situation is to completely reinstall iTunes. To do this, you must first completely remove the program from the phone. Over, you need to capture not only the media combine, but also other Apple components. This will help additional utilities that allow you to remove the entire software.
After that, you can reinstall iTunes.
What to do if the error continues to appear during the update / restore
In the event that the update / restore process cannot be completed due to an error, you must:
- Try the procedure on another computer.
- Try to restore iPhone using a different USB cable or USB port.
- Try reinstalling iTunes.
Method 1: Update iPhone again
If error 9 when restoring iPhone occurs as a result of the device being disconnected from the computer during the update or restore process, the first step is to try updating the smartphone again. For this:
Step 1. Install the latest version of iTunes. You can update iTunes on a Windows computer from the Help menu → Updates, on Mac, on the Updates tab in the Mac App Store.
Step 2. Force restart your iPhone. To do this, simultaneously hold down the Power and Home buttons (the volume down button on the iPhone 7/7 Plus) and hold until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
Step 3. Connect iPhone to Computer with USB Cable.
Step 4. When prompted by iTunes to update or restore the device, select Update. In this case, the data on the iPhone will be saved.
Note: if the update is successful, but the iPhone is restarted in recovery mode, then the procedure must be performed again, but at the final stage, select not Update, but Restore. Note that this operation provides for the complete deletion of data from the device, which can later be restored from a backup.
Method 2. Perform recovery via DFU mode
Similar to the previous method, with only one difference. Before connecting iPhone to computer, smartphone must be put into DFU mode. For this:
Press the Home and Power buttons at the same time and hold them for 10 seconds, then release the Power button and continue holding the Home button until iTunes detects the smartphone in recovery mode (about 10 seconds).
Error restoring iPhone what to do
Error 9 accompanied by the message Failed to restore iPhone [device name]. An unknown error (9) has occurred, which occurs when the device’s USB connection to iTunes is interrupted unexpectedly. This can happen if the user manually disconnects the device during the restore process. How to get rid of error 9 was described in this instruction.
Method 3. Contact the service center
If the above steps did not help, then your problem is of a technical nature and it may be related to the battery, gyroscope loop or flash memory. The solution is to replace the problematic component or, as is the case with flash memory, re-solder it. It is not recommended to deal with such complex repairs without experience and the necessary tools, so the best option is to contact a service center.

Error 9 in the iPhone most often occurs during software updates and refers to quite serious failures that the user usually cannot fix on his own. This nuisance is usually encountered when flashing a smartphone, and its insidiousness is that it occurs at the moment when, it would seem, the firmware has completed successfully and the iPhone is disconnected from the computer’s USB port. After the error 9 appeared, the iPhone flatly refuses to respond to the owner’s commands and completely turns into a brick. How to deal with error 9 and is it possible to solve this problem yourself?
Despite the threatening symptoms, you can try to fix the trouble with error 9 yourself. Very often the computer port is to blame for the failure. To allow the firmware to complete normally, sometimes it is enough just to change the USB connector to the adjacent one. Often the cause of the error is a poor-quality or faulty connection cord. Statistics show that users who use the original iPhone cable to connect to a computer are much less likely to become a victim of error 9. Therefore, one of the possible ways out of the situation may be to replace the cable with a known good.
Also, the reason may be hidden in the firmware itself. If none of the above methods helped, you can try to start the procedure again, but using a guaranteed high-quality iPhone firmware. Alas, all the described methods of returning the iPhone to life after an unsuccessful firmware do not guarantee success. The operating system of any smartphone is a complex organism, which even a slight deviation from the norm can lead to failure. That is why experts do not recommend flashing the iPhone on your own without having experience in this matter. The service center employees are guaranteed to successfully perform any work with both the software and the hardware of your device and the smartphone will work for a long time and without surprises. But if the trouble has already occurred and error 9 appeared on the screen of your gadget, you should not be upset, since your smartphone can always be brought back to life in a specialized service center. In most cases, a visit to a qualified Apple repair technician is much cheaper than trying to do it yourself, unqualified repairs. The Apple Service Center specialists, Fixing Apples, can easily eliminate error 9 and make it an order of magnitude cheaper than other workshops.
