Apple iOS Error Code 14 Data Recovery
Some Apple mobile devices have experienced problems with iPhones, iPads, and iPods that are low on storage space. When upgrading iOS, instead of getting the latest update some users wind up with a mobile device that locks up during boot. When recovery is attempted via iTunes, the recovery fails and the device returns an error message that reads “[Device Name] could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (14).”
This phenomenon has come to be known as Error Code 14 or iTunes Error 14. It is not limited to older devices, and it usually occurs when the iOS upgrade is attempted with less than 5 GB of free space on the Apple device. The problem can be compounded as well by a low battery charge.
Until recently, very little could be done for affected phones and tablets other than performing a factory reset, which returns them to stock settings and wipes out all stored user data. If there has been no recent backup to iTunes or iCloud, that data is lost forever.
Secure Data Recovery’s mobile device R&D division focuses on developing new data recovery procedures to deliver the best results technologically possible. Recent advances in data recovery technology have revealed methods by which Error Code 14 iPhones can be restored with user data intact.
