How to Recover iPhone Data Lost after Restoring to Factory Settings

Need to recover iPhone data after restore!

Can a program recover videos and pictures from an iPhone that has been restored to factory settings? I lost my iPhone data after restore. Some of them are very precious and I need them back. How could I get them back? Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

General speaking, when you delete data from your iPhone, it isn't gone forever immediately, but only becomes invisible and can be overwritten by any new data. As to restoring iPhone to factory settings, it's a little hard, because the data might have been overwritten during restoring. It sounds impossible to recover data from iPhone after factory setting restore. Acctually, there is still a chance. All you need is an iPhone data recovery tool.

Hi, only iPhone 4 need to be put into DFU mode. If your iPhone is not iPhone 4, don't do that. And there is the button "restart the device" on the program to put your iPhone into normal mode

Hi Selena, I put my iPhone in DFU mode and plugged in to use Dr.Fone but it says your phone is not in normal mode. How can i make it work in DFU mode?

Just download the program and scan your iPhone to see whether there are some data you need to recover or not.

Hi my iPhone did an update and I took it out of wifi half way through. It wiped everything and restored factory settings. I didn't back it up so lost a years worth of stuff. Can I retrieve it? Xx

I'm not sure yet since the scan doesn't finish. After the scan, if photos were backed up, you can check the folder: Camera Roll & App Photos in left sidebar to see whether your photos are there or not.

Ok I downloaded it and it says my device isnt working normally so I need to restart it and when I do it keeps doing the same thing. THen it says to scan the itunes backup and it says there is one from yesterday but I tried it 3 times and it gets stuck around 15% i left it on all night.do you think it backed up the pictures before it updated it?

Hi, In this case, first, you'd better not restore your iPhone. If you restore, you can't recover info any more. Next, I don't know whether your iTunes has backed up your iPhone automatically or not. Anyway, you can try your luck by downloading Dr.Fone for iOS trial version to have a try.
