Near iOS 6 Photos Upgrade Disaster

—INT. NIGHT—

PHONE RINGS

Me: Hello?
My sister: I AM NEVER UPGRADING ANYTHING EVER AGAIN!
Me: …what’s wrong?
My sister: ALL MY PHOTOS ARE GONE!!
Me: All your photos?
My sister: My photos! My videos! EVERYTHING FROM THE WEDDING! It’s ALLLLL GONE!
Me: You didn’t back-up your photos?
My sister: …
Me: You lost them all in the upgrade?
My sister: I went to search for them, and they’re not there! THIS IS STUPID!
Me: That doesn’t make sense. I didn’t lose all mine. Did you turn Photo Stream on?
My sister: I skipped that part. I’m looking at my photos and they’re all gone. WHAT DO I DO?!
Me: I don’t know what to tell you. You didn’t back them up. You didn’t put them on your computer. So yeah, sounds like they’re all gone.
My sister: BUT WHY?!
Me: I don’t know why. That didn’t happen to me.
My sister: STUPID APPLE! You know, I NEVER upgrade anything, but this ONE time, just this once, I tried it, and it bites me in the ass! I will never—oh, wait…
Me: What?
My sister: It says “restoring”.

And they all lived happily ever after.
