Hi all

First time I'm having this.

iPhone 13 Pro, newest OS (17.4.1, ), onto MBP M1, newest OS (Sonoma 14 .4.1).

When trying to backup the iPhone (I'm backing up to restore onto new iPhone 15 Pro) it fails with corrupt message, see attached.

I have more than sufficient space on MBP.

Using WiFi or a USB cable? I prefer the USB cable and Finder for backups. Better reliability and speed.

Also, you can try making a backup with iMazing. It has the advantage of letting you define where you want the backups stored, including external drives.

Neither my phone or MBP is offering me this upgrade yet...
