Why is my iPhone not responding?
I use an iPhone 4s which is about 5 years old. Last night, around 2 am, my phone completely stopped responding. The screen is black, and there are absolutely no sounds coming from it. I have tried charging it, but that hasn't worked either.
What I suspect is an interrupted software update. I continually got notifications to update to iOS 9.3.5, and in my hurry might have opted to automatically update it at night if connected to power. I had no internet connectivity last night, and I also removed it from charge.
I have had some prior minor issues with the phone too, like overheating and drainage of batter, but I attributed those to the age of the phone.
My main concern is that I have some very important contact numbers in the phone, and like an idiot, I never backed it up to my computer.
I took the phone to the repair centre, and they said that there was nothing they could do. Their solution is to replace and buy another 4s, which I don't want to do. Any help at this point would be heavily appreciated.
Is this a good question?
