I lost everything on my iPhone after udating to iOS 8 beta. iOS 8 beta is not a good system for iPhone. Except for data loss, it ruined my iPhone 5s. I restored my iPhone to default to refresh it and then restored it from a previous iTunes backup to recover my data. But, iTunes said that a password is set, needs to enter the password to restore from the backup! When did I encrypt my backup? I didn’t remember! So how could I know what the password is? Who can tell you how can I get the iPhone backup password in iTunes?
