How to Backup iPhone 4S Data before iOS 6 Upgrade

No call log (recent/missed) after upgrade to iOS 6? That’s really horrible!

I updated my phone and lost all my calendars and contacts. I went to restore from back up in iTunes and it did not have the correct back up. Are there other backups files and where? I am supposed to be also backing up to iCloud but that one appears nearly a year old. What is going on?!

For some reasons, the iOS 6 upgrade wipes many important files off your iPhone and you can never find them back, just like the case above.

If you have created iTunes backup before the upgrade, you have chance to restore files from it. But the possibility of restoring only some of the files is still existed. A third-party iPhone data backup program would help you a lot to prevent data from losing.

Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (for Windows users) is a program that can backup iPhone 4S or other iDevice data before iOS 6 update. Unlike iTunes backup, backup files you made with this program are straightly saved on your computer and you can easily read or play them. Another good point is, you can even transfer them to different devices.

Step 2. Backup and Save iPhone Data on Your Computer

The scan won’t last long. With a short moment all contents in your iTunes backup will all be detected and displayed in categories such as “Camera Roll”, “Note”, “Calendar” and more, just as you could see from the image below.

You could click on different categories to preview details of files and then decide to backup them selectively.

In the end, you just need to tick on files you want to backup and click on “Recover” to backup and save them on your computer.
