Part 1: Directly recover from iPhone, iPad & iPod touch

Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS allows you to recover deleted contacts, messages, call history, notes, Calendars, reminders and Safari bookmarks from iPhone 6/6Plus/5S/5C/5/4S/4/3GS, iPad Air 2/1, iPad mini 3/2 (Retina), iPad mini, iPad with Retina display, The new iPad, iPad 2/1, and iPod touch 5/4. Meanwhile, you can use it to scan camera roll, photo stream, photo library, message attachments and voice memos that exist on your device.

Note: Don't use your device after you lost data from it. Any operation on your device can generate new data, which can overwrite your lost data and make it unrecoverable.


Connect your device to the computer

Run the software on your computer, and connect your device (eg. iPhone 4). Then you'll see the window on the right.

Note: If you use an iPhone 4/3GS, iPad 1 or iPod touch 4, you can switch to the "Advanced Mode" through the button at the lower-right corner.


Scan your device for lost data on it

You can simply click on the "Start Scan" button to get your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch scanned immediately.

Note: For the "Advanced Mode", you can follow the description in the window to get your iPhone 4/3GS, iPad 1 and iPod touch 4 scanned deeply.


Preview and recover data from your device

The scan will take you some time. Once it's complete, you can see a scan result generated by the program. All data lost and existing on your device are displayed in categories. Choose the menu on the left side and preview the content one by one. You can tick any item you want and save it on your computer by clicking on the "Recover" button.

Note: If you're trying to recover text messages, iMessage, contacts, or notes, when you click Recover, a pop-up will ask: Recover to Computer or Recover to Device. If you want to put these messages back to your iOS device, click Recover to Device.
