    How to restore an iOS device from its backup in iTunes?
    Silly question but how do you restore an iOS device which has a problem from its backup in iTunes without it immediately creating a new backup (complete with problem) as soon as it is connected?

    The issue arose when I downgraded from iOS 10.0.1 to 9.3.5 in an iPad then did another upgrade to 10.0.1 to try and resolve the Barometer issue. As soon as I connected the iPad, it overwrote the existing 10.0.1 backup, so what I ended up doing was to restore my iPhone's backup to the iPad!

    Connect your iDevices, one at a time. Open the iTunes page showing that device. Scroll down a bit and uncheck the box under Options that says "Automatically sync when this iDevice is connected." From now on, nothing happens when you connect, you have to select what you want it to do.

    Thanks for that and I have changed the setting for my iPhones so they no longer backup automatically on connection. It appears that unchecking the box to "Open iTunes when this iPad is connected" stops the iPads from automatically backing up.
