Although they’re fun to use when they work fine, software errors on your Apple devices can be extremely frustrating. It’s even worse when Apple is trying to charge you way too much for what appears to be a simple fix. The good news is that you can easily fix several errors on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, or Apple TV all by yourself.
Yes, you don’t necessarily need to speak with an Apple Genius as this can be done from the comfort of your desk. As a matter of fact, you only need to plug in the device to your computer, run a capable program, click a few buttons, and your device is back to normal. Sounds too easy? Well, it actually is.
AnyFix is a software program created basically to fix errors on Apple devices. Whether you own an iPad, an iPhone, an iPod Touch, or an Apple TV, this comprehensive program lets you fix common (and uncommon) errors you’re likely to encounter. At the moment, AnyFix has the capability to resolve over 130 issues on these devices.
For devices stuck at the boot screen or won’t just turn on, plugging in your device into your computer’s USB port and running AnyFix is a sure way to get that device working again. Apart from this, AnyFix also resolves boot loop, recovery mode, battery drain, stuck update, and charging failure (unless it’s a hardware issue), and so on.
iTunes can also be problematic at times, with all sorts of error codes popping up. Unfortunately, suggestions shown on Apple support websites don’t usually work as a complete re-install might be required sometimes. With AnyFix, over 200 iTunes error can be easily fixed without going through the trouble of reinstalling iTunes.
When you launch AnyFix, you will see 5 main features on the interface
- System Repair
- Enter/Exit Recovery Mode
- Upgrade/Downgrade iOS
- Reset Device
- Fix iTunes Sync Error
This fixes software errors on Apple mobile devices and Apple TV. This is the mode that fixes boot loop error, battery drain, stuck update, and so on. However, this software isn’t expected to fix hardware errors. This goes without saying, but this won’t fix a damaged Touch ID sensor, an internally damaged earpiece, or a damaged camera module.
This is probably the biggest feature of this program as it lets you fix a wide range of issues. The great thing about this mode is that it resolves these issues without deleting saved data or settings.
Enter/Exit Recovery Mode
This gets your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch out of recovery mode. It can also be used to enter the recovery mode when needed.
The highlight of this feature is that it lets users upgrade and downgrade iOS even to the beta version. Moreover, it doesn’t require a developer account when upgrading to iOS beta.
This mode lets you downgrade or upgrade your iOS version as you wish. However, it should be noted that downgrade is only for iOS versions still being signed by Apple; this means you cannot simply choose to downgrade from iOS 13 to iOS 12.
This mode let you choose from two different reset mode depending on the situation. The hard reset mode is ideal in a case when you’ve forgotten the device’s password, but it takes much longer and will erase all data and settings. The 1-click reset mode is to be used if you can still unlock the devices, and this mode takes a much shorter time to complete.
Fix iTunes Sync Error
Although iTunes is no longer included in the most recent versions of macOS, this tool can still prove to be very useful if you use an older version of macOS with iTunes included. This tool is capable of fixing all sorts of error iTunes might throw at you, preventing your device from synchronizing with your computer.
With everything AnyFix offers, it proves itself as a handy tool everyone using an iOS or tvOS device should have. The self-explanatory, easy-to-use user interface makes it one of the best tools around to fix errors on iDevices. Although I find the monthly subscription a bit pricey, the lifetime subscription is reasonably priced at only $69.99. At this price, AnyFix is worth every cent.
