If you are an iPhone user, you might be aware of the fact that iTunes automatically creates a backup of your files whenever you sync your device with your computer’s iTunes app. When you mistakenly delete files on your iPhone, you can restore these files by using the backup file. It’s a very important feature Apple has created for its users.
Here’s another important fact. Once you extract the iPhone backup and then restore it to your Apple device, all data that currently exists on your Apple device (in this case, iPhone) will be removed. It will be replaced by the restored backup data. The backup file also cannot be read or accessed by anybody. That is, unless, you have restored the backup to your Apple device (e.g. iPhone).
But what if you want to keep your data on your iPhone? Plus, you want to restore the data from the backup file. Well, there is one way to do it.
