Data Extraction From iTunes Backup File to Android

-- Wednesday, November 02, 2016
My iPhone 6 was stolen and the person who stole it changed the sim card. Sadly, I never enable "Find My iPhone" on the device. So I am afraid that I am not able to get it back. Without any choice, I need to use my old Android phone. Can anyone please help me to transfer the data on my lost phone to my Android? Thanks.

The reasons why we need to transfer the iTunes backup files to Android device is that, obviously, we could not transfer the data from our iOS device directly. For instance, sometimes our iPhone may fail to connect or, unfortunately, we lose our iOS device. Now, we are able to extract the files from our iOS to other devices even without this iOS device. But the premise is that you need to make a backup via iTunes.

We can go on the transferring process easily with Phone Transfer. Please download the program below and have a try!

Part 1: Something You Need to Know before Extraction

1. Before transferring, please unlock the iTunes backup file if you already set up to encrypt your backups before. You can't use an encrypted backup without its password. Just enter the correct password you created before to unlock it.

2. There is an option that allows you to clear the data on destination phone (your Android device) before the process of transferring.

If you check it, all the Contacts, Text messages, call logs, photos, calendar on it would be gone. It would be ok to erase the data when they are meaningless for you and you can also get more storage space on your Android. If you don't choose this option, you can keep the previous data as well as the ones that are about to be transferred. Sometimes it is chaotic for the data on your device as there are so many files on it and the storage space would also become a problem.

Anyway, to check this option or not is up to you.
