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!
If you lost all of your iPhone data after restore to factory settings, you can choose to restore the whole content by using iTunes, because there is no data on your iPhone now. If only part of the data is lost and you don't want to erase what you have now, you need a third-party tool to help. iTunes doesn't allow you to restore data selectively, after all.
You can use Wondershare Dr.Fone Mac or Wondershare Dr.Fone (Windows). The software can help to find out all your iTunes backup files automatically and extract the whole contents for you to preview, so that you can recover your iPhone data selectively from the backup, and keep your current data safe.
Download the free trial version below to have a try. Choose the right version for your computer.
Take Wondershare Dr.Fone (Mac) as an example. After installing and running it on your Mac, follow the steps below to perform iPhone data recovery after restore, as well as recover videos, messages, contacts, etc.
2 steps to recover iPhone data after restore on Mac
Step1. Extract iTunes backup
After running Wondershare Dr.Fone (Mac), you will have to select your device type and select recovery mode first.
Select your device type
Select a recovery mode
Then you will get a window as below. All your iTunes backup files will be displayed and you need to choose one to extract. Just choose the one for your iPhone. One thing you need to pay attention is that don't sync your iPhone with iTunes when you're doing this recovery work.
Step2. Preview and recover
After the scan, all the contents are extracted and displayed in details. You can preview the photos and videos in Camera Roll and Photo Stream categories, SMS contents in Messages and Message Attachments, etc. Select the one you'd like to preview, mark it and click "Recover" to save it on your Mac.
