Part 1: Recover from iOS

Step 1. Connect iOS devices to computers

Connect the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the computer using the USB cable attached to the iOS device. Then start Dr. fone on your computer and select Recover.
Once the program detects your device, it will display the following window.

Tip: Before running Dr. fone, you should download the latest version of iTunes. To avoid automatic synchronization, do not start iTunes while running Dr. fone. I recommend that you disable automatic synchronization in iTunes beforehand: Start iTunes > Preferences > Devices, and check “Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically”.

Step 2. Scan your device to find missing data

Just click the Start Scan button and let the program scan your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to scan deleted or missing data. The scanning g process may last several minutes, depending on the amount of data on your device. During the scanning process, if you find that the data you are looking for exists, you can click the "pause" button to stop the process.

Step 3. Preview and restore scanned data

Scanning takes some time. When finished, you can see the scan results generated by the program. The missing and existing data on the device are displayed by category. To filter out deleted data on iOS devices, you can slide the "Only display the deleted items" option to "ON". By clicking on the file type on the left, you can preview the data you find. You can see a search box at the top right of the window. You can search for specific files by typing keywords in the search box. Then click the Recovery button to save the data to the computer or device.

When you find the data you need, just select them in front of the check box. Then, click the Recovery button in the lower right corner of the window. By default, the recovered data will be saved to your computer. For SMS, iMessage, Contacts or Remarks, when you click "Recover", the pop-up window will require you to "Recover to Computer" or "Recover to Device". To put these messages back on the iOS device, click "Recover to Device".

Tip: Preview and restore data from downloaded iCloud backup files directly

If you have downloaded the iCloud backup file before, you do not need to log in again and download the iCloud backup file. Click "To preview and scan previously downloaded iCloud backup file" under the account login entry.

Then, you can see all the downloaded iCloud backup files shown in the list. You can choose any of them to extract content. All of these downloaded backup files are located on your own computer.
