  • You can use iTunes to restore your Apple iPhone SE from a previous backup.
    Note: Restoring from backup is different from performing a full software restore. Restoring from backup restores the settings, data and other information saved in a previous backup. Performing a full software restore will delete the contents of your device and restore it to the original factory settings.
    In this example, we use iTunes v11.1.0.126.
  • 1. Connect the Apple iPhone SE to the computer. On the computer, select your Apple iPhone SE.
  • 2. Select Restore Backup…
    Note: iTunes will not offer this option if no backups have been performed.
  • 3. Use the drop-down menu to select a backup, then select Restore.
  • 4. Wait while the backup is restored.
  • 5. Click OK.
  • 6. Wait while the Apple iPhone SE is synced.
  • 7. The restoration is complete and the Apple iPhone SE can be disconnected from the computer.
