Setting Up or Restoring Your iPhone

A suspension bridge spans the logo with the acronym BVT in the middle. Beneath the bridge the words Blind Vet Tech appears. The bottom of the logo contains morse code reading Technology Association for Veterans with Visual Impairments.
In this Blind Vet Tech Quick Guides and Tutorials podcast, we demonstrate how to setup or restore a iPhone or iPad. Many of these steps become second nature the longer you have an iOS device, as you often have to do many of these steps after updating the iOS software. The process is rather straight forwards, and listening to this podcast will alleviate any concerns about what this process is like. Here are a couple of tips to be aware of as you do this process:

  • Have your iTunes or Apple ID and password available before starting
  • If setting up a new device, the process will differ slightly from one who is updating or restoring their device
  • Triple Click of the home button on the first screen will activate Voice Over
  • If you are restoring a device, make sure to have the computer with the back-up available and your device connected or on a wifi system if restoring from iCloud

Thank you for listening to this Blind Vet Tech tutorial on how to restore or set up a new iPhone or iPad.
