Mode 1: Directly recover lost data from iPhone, iPad & iPod touch

iOS Data Recovery (Windows) allows you to recover lost data or deleted contacts, messages, call history, notes, calendars, reminders and safari bookmarks from iPhone 5S/5C/5/4S/4/3GS, iPad Air, iPad mini 2 (Retina), iPad mini, iPad with Retina display, The new iPad, iPad 2/1, and iPod touch 5/4.

Note: Please don't use your device after you lost data. Because any operation on your device will generate new data, which can overwrite the lost data and make it unrecoverable.

Mode 2: Recover data from iPhone, iPad & iPod touch with iTunes backup

With this data recovery mode, you are able to 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: Please don't sync your iOS device with iTunes when you realized that you've lost data, or the iTunes backup file will be updated after the sync, which will make the lost data unrecoverable..

step 1

Choose iTunes backup and extract it

After launching the program, you'll be led to the Recover from iOS Device mode (the default mode). Switch to "Recover from iTunes Backup File" on the top of the primary window.

Here, all your iTunes backup files of your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch which have ever been synced with iTunes on this computer will be automatically found and listed. Select the one you want and click "Start Scan" button to extract it.
