How to Recover Notes from Stolen iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch

Can I recover notes on my stolen iPhone from computer?

An old iPhone was stolen from me when I was traveling. I had regularly synced the phone via iTunes on my laptop, a Windows 7 machine. How can I recover any notes from iTunes on the laptop? Is there a tool which will help me recover this stuff?

As we know, the iTunes backup file is a kind of an SQLitedb file that you can't view the content of it, let alone taking data out of it. To get data from it, you need to rely on a third-party tool which can extract it. Of course, there is such a tool which empowers you to recover note on your stolen iPhone, iPad or iPod touch on the laptop. Here is my recommendation: Wondershare dr.fone for ios(iPhone Data Recovery) (for Windows users) or Wondershare dr.fone for ios (Mac iPhone Data Recovery).

Download the free trial version below to try it for free! The Windows version also allows you to directly scan and recover data from your device. To extract iTunes backup file, you can choose any version: iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPad 1 or iPod touch 4. All of them can do it perfectly.
