iPhone Backup Extractor: Extract and Recover iPhone Data

Why need an iPhone backup extractor

Why need an iPhone backup extractor? It's decided by the file type of the backup file. The iTunes backup file is not a common file, but an SQlitedb file. It's not readable. So even you find the backup file, you can't get the content out of it, let alone restore to your iPhone. This is why the iPhone backup extractor comes out.

Well, there is another thing you need to notice. Don't sync your iPhone with iTunes after you find the data loss on your iPhone. Because iTunes only updates the backup file every time you sync with it, not to build a new backup file. So if you have synced your iPhone again, the backup file will be overwritten by the content on your iPhone, and the lost data will go forever.

Can you read them when Dr.Fone finds them? Generally, if you can can read WhatsApp messages during the scanning process, then for sure, after recovery, you can read them too. Anyway, I will tell our programmers to let them check it out.

im using the latest windows version, i recover the whatsapp messages, but i cant read any of the extracted messages. What is the problem?
disqus_K95Ejrv1eo
Yes, first you should try the trial version to see whether it can find your photos or not. If it can find the photos, then you should buy the full version to perform the recovery.

Does the same apply for photos on the trial version? Only the photos seen on the trial version will show up on the full version?

Hi, the windows version supports WhatsApp messages recovery. You can try it to see whether it can find something you need or not.

Can anyone confirm that the latest version for Windows has Whatsapp recovery included ?
disqus_K95Ejrv1eo
If you're using the latest version of this program and you're trying to recover text messages directly from your iPhone, there is an option "Recover to Device" after you clicking "Recover". This is the only way for you to get recovered text messages back to iPhone.
