Which Recovery Mode does PhoneRescue Support?
PhoneRescue provides three recovery modes for iOS device users: Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes Backup, and Recover from the iCloud. Those modes are so stunning to get your lost data back. Actually, there is another mode separated from iOS device recovery. That is DFU Mode. It is a technical mode to retrieve data thoroughly with splendid features, but it doesn't support iPhone 6(plus)/5s/5c/5/4s, iPad 2, the new iPad, iPad 4, iPad Mini, iPad Mini with Restina Display, iPad Air, iPod touch 1/2, and iPod touch 5. In other words, if you are an owner of those iOS devices, you only allow to recover data with another three methods.
