The Bottom Line

From the above we can see that even if you have iTunes and iCloud backups, you can only restore the entire backup, and it will cause your data to be overwritten by backup contents, so if you want to restore just one or several files without erasing any data, we suggest that you can download PhoneRescue for iOS. It’s really not easy to recover deleted data on iPhone, so you’d better backup your iPhone regularly to avoid such situation from happening again.
