How to Restore iPhone from Backup

-- Saturday, May 04, 2013
The new iDevices (iPhone 7/7Plus/SE/ 6s/ 6s Plus, iPad Pro/ Air 2/ mini 4) are really attractive with its bigger screen and many other features such as HealthKit and NFC. But, for many Apple fans, it is such a headache to restore an iPhone from backup files, especially when they try to extract single data out of the whole backup. iTunes and iCloud don't allow you to recover data selectively. Now, you will know how to do it by reading the following part. (To retrieve Android files, please check out our website for more information.)

First, you need to download iPhone Data Recovery. It is a quite professional tool for data recovery. Many file types such as contacts, messages and others are supported. More importantly, any one can surely use it even without this guide.
Note: It is highly recommended that a backup file needs to be performed because later you may find it useful when the phone is lost or anything. And, when you get the data lost from an iPhone, stop using it in order to prevent them from being overwritten.
