Undelete iPad: Undelete and Rescue Lost Data on iPad

Is it possible to undelete iPad data?

On a computer, it's easy for us to undo some wrong operations when there is a need. You can restore a deleted document from the recycle bin, or you can undelete contents from a Word, and things like that. While on an iPad, is it possible to undelete data on it?

Generally, you have a backup file if you've synced your iPad with iTunes before you deleted iPad data. In that case, you can restore the data from iTunes with a wet finger. What if you don't have one? Or you just forgot to sync your iPad with iTunes and delete the whole data? You need to get an iPad data undeleting tool, other than iTunes.

With an iPad data undeleting tool, you can directly scan to undelete data on iPad, even you don't have a backup file. You can try Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac iPhone Data Recovery) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Windows iPhone Data Recovery). Both of them let you undelete data from iPads with a few clicks, including deleted contacts, messages, notes, calendar, call log, reminders and Safari bookmarks. For iPad 1, you also can undelete photos, video, voice memos, etc.
