How to recover lost contacts, messages,notes etc. from iPhone/iPad after upgrade to iOS 7?
Step 1, connect your iPhone to computer
Run this program and connect your iPhone to computer via USB Cable. This iOS Data Recovery will show you 2 recovery mode: “Recover from iOS Device” and “Recover from iTunes Backup File”, just go with the default one.
Step 2, Access into device system and scan
Now, you need to get into the system before scanning, according to the steps below:
1. Hold your iPhone and click “Start” button.
2. Pressing “Power” and “Home” buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds.
3. After 10 seconds, release “Power” button, but keep holding “Home” for another 10 seconds.
After that, you’ll get a message saying that you’ve successfully entered the system, and the software begins scanning your iPhone.
If you are using iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or New iPad, you just need to click “Start” and this program will automatically access into your system and analyze your device.
Step 3, Preview and recover the lost data
When the scan finish, this program will list all found data in organized categories. You can mark on several categories to recover the data in those categories by click “Recover”. Or just click one category and preview which photo, video or call history you need to recover. If you only want back your deleted ones, you can refine the scan result by using the slide button at bottom to only display deleted items.
If you choose the “Recover from iTunes Backup File” mode, you will see all the iTunes backup list, just choose one according to your device and last backup data, click “Start Scan”, and then find your data to recover.
