According to CNET, more than 40% of iOS users choose to update to the latest iOS 8.4 in a week after the release on June 30th, which shows that the latest iOS 8.4 does worth a try. What if you lose your reminders
items during the updating? As it is known, data lost in the process of updating
cannot be recovered directly from the iDevice because the data were wiped out from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
here are other options to get back your lost reminders provided that you have synced your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to iTunes. Actually, most iDevice users should have one iTunes backup unless you choose to disabled the automatic backing up previously.
