iPod touch restarted while using it and now telling me to set it up again!
My iPod touch had ran out of battery so I put it on charge and started using it when it had enough charge (still charging at the time). As I was using it, it randomly started to restart. Didn’t think much of it as it has done this in the past. However the concerning part is that when the device had restarted, there was a set up page (the page you would get if setting up a new device or after resetting it) and I have no idea why as I haven’t reset the device because I had a lot of things on in that I wanted to keep. I’ve tried turning it off and back on and forced restarting it but it’s still showing the set up page, I’m currently waiting for the battery to complete drain again and then charging it up to full to see if it does anything but I doubt it will. The strange thing is is that when I hold in the power button to turn it off, I can see my lockscreen in the background. I’ve tried connecting it to my computer, iTunes recognises the device but I can’t do anything further (look for backups etc.) because it asks me to confirm it on my iPod but nothing shows up. I’ve tried opening the files on the iPod through my computer but nothing is appearing, no folders, nothing. I tried getting help from Apple support but was eventually redirected to the discussion section on the Apple website, I only put the post up on the 3rd April but I am yet to get a reply from anyone. Setting the device up again seems like the only way I’m going to be able to get back onto it, but I don’t want to do that and risk losing everything, all backups I have seem to be gone as well. Anyone have any advice or solutions for this? Is there anyway of setting the device up again and keeping everything that was on it? Thanks in advance for any help! The iPod touch is the 5th generation if its any help!
