I check the Encrypt iPhone backup checkbox and then enter my new password twice. Then it tells me: "The password you entered to protect your iPhone backup file could not be set. Please try again." I try again and get the same error. Any ideas?
Don't think Lightning connector was around 7 years ago.There is an easier way out on this:
- Quit iTunes
- Disconnect the iPhone from the USB cable connecting to the computer if it is currently connected
- Connect the iPhones Lightning / charging USB cable to the computer, then reconnect the iPhone to that USB cable
- Relaunch iTunes
- Go to the “Summary” tab for your connected device and click to enable encrypted backups again
- Enter the password to set as the encrypted backup password twice as usual, then back up the iPhone as usual
