Please Connect Device

Once your iOS device is recognized, this interface will display.

If PhoneRescue fails to recognize your iOS device, you may try these troubleshooting steps to solve this problem.

Step 2: Analysis.

Do as following:
  • Sign in to iCloud
  • Choose & Download backup
  • Preview the scanned data

After inputting right Apple ID and password, please click button to log in your iCloud account. At the same time, please make sure the Internet connection is stable. Moreover, PhoneRescue takes your privacy seriously and will never keep a record of your Apple account info or content at any time. Please just use it at ease.

Log in iCloud

1. Apple will not let you log in your iCloud account on the third party app with turning on TWO-STEP VERIFICATION, so please turn off TWO-STEP VERIFICATION temporarily.

2. Apple limits the access of iCloud backup from Third Party app. Thus, if you turn on TWO-STEP VERIFICATION, PhoneRescue supports to download iCloud backups with iOS version which is earlier than 10.3.3. (Include 10.3.3). If you do not turn on TWO-STEP VERIFICATION, it supports to download the iCloud backups with iOS version earlier than 12.1 (Include 12.1).

After you log into iCloud account successfully, PhoneRescue for iOS will detect all contacts, notes, photos, photo videos, calendar and reminders you ever synced to iCloud. Please kindly check whether you can find deleted data in this section. Or if you want to recover more types of data, please choose iCloud Backup function.

After clicking iCloud Backup, you can choose the one you need based on the date it was created and click the "Download" button. It will take some minutes to download your backup from iCloud. Please just wait for a moment.

Downloading In Progress

After the downloading process is complete, please click button on the lower right corner to continue. If you click "Only Scan Backup" button, PhoneRescue will scan and display all data in the backup. However, if you click "Compare" button, PhoneRescue will compare data located in the backup with data in your device. And then it will only display data that don’t exist in your device. It will take a few minutes to scan all data from the iCloud backup file. Please keep patient.

Scan or Compare Data

If you want to scan all categories, please check Select All option. If you only want to recover some categories, please uncheck Select All option and then choose your wanted data. It will take a few minutes to scan all data from the iCloud backup file. Please keep patient.

Scan or Compare Data

1. Currently, PhoneRescue can only compare your Personal Data (Contacts, Call History, Messages, Message Attachment, Voicemail, Calendar, Reminders, Notes, Note Attachment, Safari History and Safari Bookmark).

2. If you don’t connect your device, "Compare" function will be disabled.

Once the scanning process is complete, you can preview iCloud backup files, like contacts, messages, photos, and more. To filter out the existed data, you can choose the option "Only list deleted" instead of "List all items". And you can search data by typing key words in search box on the upper middle of the window.
