There are any number of reasons why data on your iPhone or other iOS device might be lost. Restored factory settings, a failed upgrade, virus attacks, or even user error could all potentially cause the untimely erasure of vital data. The Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery system can recover 16 types of data directly from a malfunctioning device, even without the use of backup files.

If your device is lost or stolen, you have a few options when it comes to iOS data recovery. If the device was synced with your computer’s iTunes program, embedded backup files can be extracted from it. From these you can recover iPhone photos, text messages, WhatsApp and Tango messages, contacts, notes, and Safari bookmarks and browser history. These embedded files can be stored on your local computer for later use or as a future backup.

Retrieving backups from a synced iCloud account is another option. This method is beneficial because it will not overwrite existing files or settings on the device. However, as with iTunes, the device must have been previously synced with the iCloud account in order to be of use.

The preview feature of this iPhone data recovery software allows you to sort through lost files by name, timestamp, or message content, and presents the relevant metadata when you click on the file to preview.
