How to Successfully Enter the Scanning Mode of Your iOS Device
Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS allows you to scan your iPhone, all iPad and iPod touch to recover lost data like contacts, photos, videos, messages, notes, etc. If you've ever used it or you’re using it now, you must know it that you need to enter the scanning mode of the device first before you perform the scan and recovery. To some people, it’s an easy job, but to others, it’s not. This time, let’s talk about how to enter the scanning mode of the device successfully at one time.
Actually, there're two ways for you to access the scanning mode of the iOS device. You can do it according to the guide displaying on the window of Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS, after connecting your device. Or you can do it by yourself with your device and leave alone the program.
