Thread: Asking to setup my iphone?

  1. #1
    Default Asking to setup my iphone?
    I am in the process of switching over from windows to my new mbp, two days ago I had my iphone 4 connected to my mbp to transfer over my apps, and use iRip to transfer over my music. I had it set up and syncing, now I just went to plug it in and its at the screen asking to set up as new phone, or use a backup.

    Its not in recovery mode or anythings so I do not know why it is happening.

    Just select setup as new it wont delete anything. Before you do your first sync though check all the tabs to see if everything is selected the way you had it before.

    Trust me you wont. Also make sure your itunes is authorized like westerman said.

    It had to be authorized to be able to transfer my purchases from my iphone to my macbook pro obviously...
