Q: “I got my iPhone 7 stolen yesterday, it really upset me. I use my iPhone to take a lot of notes including my shopping lists, my appointments, my class notes etc. I did backup my iPhone with iTunes before stolen, but iTunes does not allow me to access and read my backups! How can I extract and retrieve the notes from iPhone backup?

It is a common situation that our iPhone notes may get lost or deleted for so many reasons, such as, mistaken deletion, device damage, failed jailbreak and device got stolen etc. To recover lost or deleted iPhone notes, you may want to restore your whole device from iTunes backup that you have made before.

But sometimes it’s not worth doing that because iTunes does not support restoring ONLY notes to iPhone, you have to restore the whole backup to iPhone to get back your notes. If you want to extract ONLY notes from iTunes, you can try to use the professional iPhone backup extracting tools, which allows you to view data on iTunes backup and extract them to the computer.
