How to Extract iPhone Call History

How can I extract iphone call history?

Does anyone know which file in the iPhone backup folder I can use to open in SQLlite and export call history from iPhone?

SQLite, is a backup file of Apple devices generated by iTunes. Once you've synced your iDevice with iTunes, this backup file will be automatically generated on your computer, and continuously updated every time you sync later. It's really a great way to help you save your previous data, but it's a double-edged sword--you can't access this backup file or extract anything from it.

Therefore, to extract your deleted call logs from your iPhone, you need to extract the SQLite file first, and to extract SQLite file, you need an iPhone data extractor. If you're still not clear about it, my recommendation is Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac iPhone Data Recovery) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS(iPhone Data Recovery) (Windows), a reliable and intuitive program that enables you to extract the call log from iPhone, including iPhone incoming call log, outgoing call log and missed call log. You can extract them all to a HTML file on your computer, so you can read and print them easily.

Note: Wondershare dr.fone for ios also allows you to directly scan and recover call history from iPhone 5/4S/4/3GS, besides extracting from iTunes backup.
