On the contrary, some issues may require you to wipe the storage of your iPhone, meaning you’ll have to use the Advanced mode. Nonetheless, your iPhone will start working without any issues.

Upgrade or downgrade iOS

There are many situations where a new iOS version comes out, and you can’t download it for some reason on your iPhone. Wondershare Dr.Fone’s iOS System Repair will help you automatically download the update package and install it on your iPhone. 

Besides, if you updated your iOS to the latest version and it’s not working as expected, you’d want to downgrade to the previous version. Fortunately, System Repair from Wondershare Dr.Fone can do it by downloading and installing the previous package automatically. 

Moreover, you don’t need iTunes/Finder, wiping your iPhone, or any technical skills to do this yourself. Plus, it can save you a few bucks and a visit to a nearby Apple Support or Apple-authorized service center.

Explore iOS Beta options without a developer account

If you’re an avid Apple fan, you might be excited about trying out new features from the latest iOS beta. If you don’t have a developer account, you won’t be able to access the latest betas. Plus, signing up for Apple’s Developer program is expensive. 

In that case, Wondershare Dr.Fone’s System Repair updates your iPhone to the latest iOS beta for free without needing a developer account. You can download and install the latest firmware using the Standard mode. 

Furthermore, if you face issues with the beta, you can use Wondershare Dr.Fone’s System Repair to downgrade to a previous iOS version at any time.

Should you get Wondershare Dr.Fone’s iOS System Repair?

Yes, you should get Wondershare Dr.Fone System Repair if you don’t know much about iTunes/Finder or have any technical skills. Otherwise, you won’t always need Wondershare Dr.Fone if you know how to use iTunes/Finder. 

But it’s still handy if you consider the whole Wondershare Dr.Fone package. I tried to update my iPhone to iOS 17.3 using System Repair by Wondershare Dr.Fone, and it was a seamless process, and I didn’t lose my iPhone’s data. It was a risky bet since I didn’t back up my data. 

Ultimately, I can recommend Wondershare Dr.Fone’s System Repair to everyone and stop worrying about losing your data when fixing most iOS problems.


Wondershare Dr.Fone’s System Repair is available for $69.95 for a year, which is expensive. If you don’t want to pay $69.95 every year, you can go for a one-time purchase of $79.95.

However, I’d recommend getting Wondershare Dr.Fone’s Full Toolkit for Mac, priced at $99.95 and providing better value than iOS System Repair.

Review Summary

System Repair by Wondershare Dr.Fone is an excellent alternative to iTunes for fixing iOS issues. It resolves many problems by re-installing the latest package, which doesn’t wipe out your iPhone’s data. System Repair could have been a better deal if it was priced slightly lower. However, you can get Wondershare Dr.Fone’s Full Mac Toolkit, which costs $30 more than iOS System Repair but offers more features and value.
