Re: How to get IOS6 working with Ubuntu 13?
No, iPhones are locked to iTunes, and Apple doesn't make iTunes for Linux.
You may be able to run Windows in Virtualbox, and iTunes on top of that.
Alternatively, use iCloud to back up your phone to the cloud, or sell the iPhone and buy something a little less restrictive like an Android phone. Drastic step, but if you stick with Linux you will probably want a Linux-friendly phone like an Android.
I try to treat the cause, not the symptom. I avoid the terminal in instructions, unless it's easier or necessary. My instructions will work within the Ubuntu system, instead of breaking or subverting it. Those are the three guarantees to the helpee.
