Mistakes happen and with all the information we keep on our phones, that mistake might be the deletion of data you wanted to keep. You think you are freeing up space and in your haste to clean it up accidentally delete that favorite photo or needed message. There is help though; there are two ways to recover the data from your iPhone.
iTunes can back your data and actually stores your data in unfathomable file types that you can’t check each and every one specifically. The iPhone Data recovery system placed inside the phone helps you to back up lost data including; messages, contacts, schedules, records, images, notes and your call log. It’s all there in your iPhone, but how do you recover it? When you run Data Recovery software, you can recover what you mistakenly deleted.
From iPhone directly
Wondershare Dr. Fone is the best app for iPhone Data Recovery. Download and install the app and the manager will show you how to search and find important data that you cannot recover from iTunes, iCloud or data that you have overwritten.
To begin you download setup file and run it on your computer by ruling it as an administrator. You will be asked if you want to start and you click start button and proceed to register or buy the software.
Once you have completed the login or purchase to access the software you will be welcomed. Once you have the Wondershare Dr. Fone installed; it will open automatically. Depending on the model of your iPhone you will:
* For the models- 6S Plus, 6, 6 plus, 5S, 5C, 5, or 4S connect your iPhone to the USB port on your computer and find the “Start Scan” button. This button is located in the blue box on the downside of the main window. Click it to scan you iPhone.
* For the models- 4 and 3GS go to the advanced mode available at the corner of the window for a more in-depth scan. Hold your phone and click the “start” button and press “Home” and “Power” at the same time for about ten seconds. After the ten seconds release only the “Power” button and continue to hold the “Home” for about fifteen seconds more. You will then see you are in the scanning mode. Release the “Home” button to scan safely.
When the scan is complete, all your data from the phone can be found where it was placed into organized sections such as; contacts, calendar, messages, call history, photos, reminders, notes etc. From here you can check the data one by one.
To restore the data, click the “Restore” button on the right side of the interface. To individually recover data, check which pieces you want then click “Restore”.
There are other alternatives to Wondershare Dr. Fone. Two of the more prominent ones are called Aiseesoft FoneLab and iMobie PhoneRescue.
The iTunes or iCloud restoration
Recovering lost data from an iPhone in iTunes or iCloud will also retrieve those lost items you are looking for; however, it is not the most advisable way to go. Backups tend to be large and you will have to wait a long time for the installation to complete. It is also an all or nothing process as you either use the entire backup or you don’t restore at all. This could be a problem if you don’t want to replant some of what’s on the backup. When you only want to restore individual files or certain types of content that were accidentally deleted; a recovery tool like Wondershare Dr. Fone is your easiest and best method.
