Shame I’m a dullard when it comes to the technical stuff

The drivers' dispute might be over, but at what cost?

CLIVE SMITH: The dressing-up corner is now no longer safe from the PC brigade

Have your say

I couldn’t wait to download the new iOS7 software for my iPhone.

Connecting it to my laptop, off went the update. I’d grown a beard by the time it was about to complete, then disaster! My laptop went into sleep mode.

Upon restarting, the iPhone decided to install factory settings and tie this up with the PC. I lost everything – apps, photos and music.

A grumpy Facebook status update brought the solution and reloading through iCloud saved the day.

The new look is lovely with some wonderful touches and I find it easier to operate than before. Shame I’m such a dullard at technical stuff.

A simple update from the phone via Wi-Fi would have sufficed.
