iOS 8.3 was released last week and after its release, new bugs come alone and some older bugs still have not fixed. Problems do exist when people update to the new iOS 8.3. One iPhone user wrote to me that during the update process, he lost some of his contacts and notes. He has an iTunes backup for his iPhone but he doesn’t want to restore the whole backup to his iPhone.
