cjmnews,

"...the statement you quoted is incorrect" It was from the forum link you provided.

Beginners Clarification: "iOS itself is never backed up by iTunes because you can always use iTunes to reinstall it.... If the hardware is not limited to iOS 6, then iTunes will try to upgrade it when you restore the operating system. Then you just restore offline to prevent iTunes from downloading the new version."

These devices can go to iOS 10 but are significantly slower than with iOS 6.

Beginners Question: If try to restore with iTunes offline where does it get iOS 6?

Any Good Beginner Tutorials to explain this?

Thanks

Ken
