3 Steps to Backup iPhone Call History Before iOS 6 Update
No call log (recent/missed) after upgrade to iOS 6? That’s really horrible!
I upgraded to the new iOS 6 and now my call log no longer registers recent/missed calls. Anyone have a solution? -- Kelinpk from Apple Discussion.
The truth is, if you have synced your iPhone with iTunes after the upgrade, you would hardly retrieve the lost call logs from the iTunes backup file. This is bad but unavoidable.
So, what should we do to prevent this disaster from happening? You can make an iPhone call log backup before iOS 6 upgrade with a backup program. Let’s take Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (for Windows users) as an example, which makes a call history backup by extracting call histories from iTunes backup. The backup it makes is easy to save and read on computer. Apart from the original iTunes backup, this tool offers a better solution and it really helps a lot.
