Dr Fone for IOS Review

We have all did the following, going through our iPhones or iPads clearing down items we don’t need anymore such as pictures, music, contacts you name it..then we delete something we actually needed and to make matter worse?..no backup since. Not good.

Restore iPhone or iPad Items That Where Not Backup Up!

DrFone to the rescue! DrFone allows you to recover deleted messages, photos, contacts, videos and more from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and more from various applications you have installed such as WhatsApp, Messenger for Facebook and more.

It can work in 3 different ways, recover files from your IOS backup file in iTunes, it can recover files from iCloud and most impressively it can recover files direct from you iPhone, iPad and Apple Touch even if you have not backed up your data.

The installation is simple with one click to launch the installation one one click to install to your specified drive on your PC or Mac, then simply plug your device in via USB and the Dr Fone wizard will launch (make sure you have iTunes installed).

Simply select the category that you want to restore from and select start scan, DrFone will then take a few moments to see what it can find on your iPhone, iPad or Touch that you have deleted.

After a moment or two DrFone will come back with what it has found, as you can see below simply select the files in question then select recover.

As you can see, I had almost 4 gig of data that it could recover for me, I selected the one photo I needed and recovered it to my PC. Simply select the recover to device option.

recover to device or computer

If you ever lose any SMS, MMS or WhatsApp Messages then Dr Fone can recover these straight back onto your Apple device in seconds.

As mentioned earlier, DrFone can also recover data direct from any backup that you have taken in iTunes or you have stored in iCloud – if you do not have access to your Apple device. Dr Fone is clever enough to know where your backups are in iTunes, it will find all your backups then it just a case or again running the wizard and selecting what you would like to restore and to where.

Before restoring anything you get a great preview screen showing all the details of the restore to make sure you are pulling back the correct file you need.
