Wondershare iPhone Data Recovery (Dr.Fone for iOS) allows you to recover data directly from iPhone 6/6 Plus/5S/5C/5/4S/4/3GS/3G, all iPads and iPod touch 5/4, as well as retrieve previous data by extracting iTunes and iCloud backups. The first step is to download the software here, and install it on your computer. Then follow the way below to get back your data.
Wondershare iPhone Data Recovery allows you to recover deleted contacts, messages, call history, notes, Calendars, reminders and Safari bookmarks from iPhone 6/6 Plus/5S/5C/5/4S/4/3GS, iPad, iPad mini, and iPod touch 5/4. Meanwhile, you can use it to scan camera roll, photo stream, photo library, message attachments and voice memos that exist on your device.
Note: Don’t use your device after you lost data from it. Any operation on your device can generate new data, which can overwrite your lost data and make it unrecoverable.
Run the software on your computer, and connect your device (eg. iPhone 5). Then you’ll see the window below. If you use an iPhone 4/3GS, iPad 1 or iPod touch 4, you can switch to the "Advanced Mode" through the button at the lower-right corner.
If your device is recognized by the software, click Start Scan to begin scanning it. For the "Advanced Mode", you can follow the description in the window to get your iPhone 4/3GS, iPad 1 and iPod touch 4 scanned deeply.
After the scan, you can preview all data found on your device in the scan result. Click the categories on the left side of the window like camera roll, contacts, messages, etc. You can preview all the details of them (except for videos). Mark what you want and click Recover to save them on your computer with one click.
1. If you're trying to recover text messages and iMessage, a pop-up will ask: Recover to Computer or Recover to Device. If you want to put these messages back to your iOS device, click Recover to Device.
2. The data displayed in the scan result contains deleted and existing items on your device. Both of them have their own color. If you want to separate them, you can use the button on the top: Only display the deleted items.
This data recovery mode lets you recover not only existing data in the backup, but also those data deleted from your device before you made the backup, as long as they were not overwritten. Note: Don't sync your device with iTunes when you realize that you've lost data, or the iTunes backup file will be updated after the sync, if you want to recover them through this recovery mode.
Note: Don't sync your device with iTunes when you realize that you've lost data, or the iTunes backup file will be updated after the sync, if you want to recover them through this recovery mode.
When launching the program, you'll be lead to the Recover from iOS Device mode (the default mode). Switch to "Recover from iTunes Backup File" on the top of the primary window, and you'll see the window on the right.
Here, all your iTunes backup files of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch which has ever synced with iTunes on this computer will be automatically found and listed. Select the one you want and click "Start Scan" to extract it.
After a few seconds, all data in the backup file will be extracted and displayed in categories. You can preview them one by one before recovery. Then you can selectively mark and recover those you want by pressing the "Recover" button at the bottom. Now contacts, notes and messages can be directly recovered to your iDevice if you keep your iDevice connected with your computer via a USB cable during the recovery process.
Note: The data displayed in the scan result contains deleted and existing items on your device. To filter out deleted ones, please swipe "Only display the deleted items" to ON.
Haven't found the data from your iOS device and the iTunes backup file? There is the third way: recover from your iCloud backup. It enables you to preview and recover all data in your iCloud backup. Therefore, don't backup your device with iCloud immediately when you find data loss.
After running Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS, choose the recovery mode of "Recover from iCloud Backup Files" on the top. Then you'll see the window below. Enter your iCloud account and password to login.
Note: Wondeshare takes your privacy seriously. We never keep a record of any your Apple account info or content at any time during your sessions.
When you logged into iCloud, the program can find all iCloud backup files in your account. Choose the one where you're going to recover data and click on the "Download" button. And then in the pop-up, you can choose the type of files you would like to download. This will reduce the time of downloading the iCloud backup file.
After that, you can scan the iCloud content now. Click on the "Scan" button to begin. It will take you some time. Just wait for a moment.
The scan will be complete in a few minutes. Once it stops, you can preview almost all data in your iCloud backup file, like contacts, messages, photos, and more. Check them one by one and tick the item you want. Then click on the "Recover button" to save them on your computer with one click. Now contacts, messages and notes can be directly recovered to your iDevice if your iDevice is connected with your computer with a USB cable during the recovery process.
