iOS Data Recovery Guide: Recover Lost or Deleted Data from iPhone, iTunes, iCloud

Part 1: Recovering Data from iPhone or iPad Directly

Step 1: Connect your iPhone/iPad to a computer and install the recovery software

Connect the device with the supplied USB connector and install your FoneDog Recovery Software (both Mac and Windows computers are supported, so don't worry about which device you have). This will then pick up your connected iOS device.

Remember to shut down iTunes to avoid automatic synchronization.

Step 2: Select the type of data you wish to recover

You'll be able to see from the recovery software that there is an array of data that can be recovered from messages and contacts to application data such as WhatsApp and messenger information. 

You can also recover your lost photographs, voicemail, videos or even documents after they have been lost. 

The easiest way to go about recovering everything is simply select the checkbox stating “Select All” and click the “Start Scan” button.

Step 3: Preview and recovery of data

Depending on your storage space on the phone, it may take a few minutes, but the software will scan for any lost or deleted data on your iOS devices. The data will be shown in the recovery window. This process can be stopped by clicking the pause button at the top of the screen at any time.

Step 4: Choose what data you want recovered to your device

There will be quite a lot of data shown on the window once scanning is completed, which can be filtered by selecting the option to only show deleted items, or filtered by file type within the window. 

Once you have narrowed down exactly what you want to keep, click the “Recover” button at the bottom of the screen to recover the data to either the iOS device or the computer connected.

Part 2: Recover Data from Your iTunes Backups

Step 1. Choose the Mode and Select the Backup File

Launch the FoneDog recovery software on your computer and select “Recover from iTunes Backup file”. This will then find all the available iTunes backup files stored on your system and list them accordingly. Select the appropriate file from this list.

Step 2:  Scan Data from iTunes Backup File

Once you have selected the backup you want to use, simply click “Start Scan” and let the software extract the available data. This may take a few minutes depending on the size of the backup.

Step 3: Preview and Recover Data

Same as before, the data will show up in the recovery window in three categories, with subcategories for different types of this data. Select what you would like recovered and click the appropriate recovery button.

If you connect your iOS device to the computer, you can recover contacts and messages directly to your device.  As there may be quite a lot of messages or contacts, you can use the "Searching Box" in the window to filter the content.

Part 3: Recover Data from iCloud Backup

Step 1: Log into iCloud

Select “Recover data from iCloud backup files”. This will then prompt you to enter your iCloud account name and password, so be sure to have these handy. (This information will not be recorded and is used securely only for the purposes of recovering the data.

Step 2: Download your iCloud Backup file

The iCloud backup files will be listed exactly as the iTunes files were, so select the file you are going to recover according to the model information and the backup date and then download it.

Step 3: Choose those files you want to recover

Once the backup file has been downloaded, a popup window will appear allowing you to select which data you wish to download and recover. It will save you time if you select the specific data you have lost, be it photos or messages etc. Click next, and it will then scan the backup data selected. This again may take some time.

Step 3. Preview and Recover data

Once the data has been scanned, you can again select the data you wish to have recovered to your device, and again select the appropriate recovery button. 

Note: Only contacts, messages and notes can be recovered directly to your iOS device. Other types will have to be recovered to your computer/mac.
