How to Recover Deleted iPhone Data after iOS 9 Upgrade

-- Sunday, August 10, 2014
Planned to post a user guide on iPhone/iPad data recovery, I browse some forums and discussions to make a survey on what issue iPhone and iPad users mostly face in recent days. And I found this question:
I have annoyed that I lost my files after my iPhone was upgraded iOS 9, such as iPhone contacts, photos, videos, messages, bookmarks and so on. My boyfriend told me that may be it is because i have upgraded iPhone from iOS 8 to iOS 9 with an incorrect way. But how can i recover my lost data on iPhone after iOS 9 upgrade?

Actually, as iOS 9 came into the market, many iOS 8 users can’t wait to upgrade their iOS device for more convenience and new functions. It’s absolutely right that upgrading OS is a good choice, however, there’s also risk for you to take that the process may fail on the half way and as a result, your data will get lost. And what you need is an iPhone/iPad data recovering tool – iPhone Data Recovery.

You can download it on your computer first, whether you are using Windows or Mac.
