My beloved iPhone SE (love the size) is on life support. Battery is dead within hours, in winter the battery is dead within minutes.
So, I’ll bite the bullet and bring it to the shop to have put a new battery in it.
I know they (not an official apple repair center) will ask for my PIN-code, to make sure everything works. I suppose they will not dump the entire content of the phone and skim trough my photos, but the idea that it is possible for them to do so makes me uncomfortable. Same goed for going trough my email and other stuff (both private and work related in Icloud)
I have no experience backing up and restoring (i do run backups to icloud) because this is my first iPhone
How do you handle this, how should I handle this?
I’m planning to do a full Itunes backup and then wipe the phone and do a basic setup. Bring him in for repair and then restore it afterwards.
Would that work, or would the basic setup already give acces to iCloud and therefore “all my efforts” would be worthless?
