Raise your hand if you ever lost/bricked/killed an iPhone or an Android*. Raise your other hand if that phone has lots of photos that you will never see again. That could be quite sad, and I have a friend who lost their iPhone today, so instead of going all “I told you so” on him, I am writing this post.
I mean, most of the apps, you will be able to download again, the lost of hardware is a good reason for an upgrade**, but the photos you had on the phone are now forever lost.
That is, unless you did this simple thing.
