Hey guys,

If I download iOS 14 and some of my photos/whatsapp messages aren't backed up, will they get automatically deleted?

Currently in process of the download and freaking out lmao

A standard software update should never affect files stored locally, unless the company has f*cked up.

Of course it goes without saying that what should happen and what does happen are sometimes not the same thing, and it is best to have a backup before any major software update just in case.

RazzzBerries You may well have started installing the update by now, but surely there's nothing preventing you from backing up the remaining files before installing? Or postponing the installation until you can back up? As above though, our files shouldn't be affected in any way.

Thanks to you both!

Installation complete and nothing has been deleted, as you mentioned.

Acsel, I need more storage to complete the backup but forgot to upload my photos onto my laptop so iCloud had more room. Will be doing that soon :yes:
