We care the security of all the data on your iOS device and we do everything we can to guard against accidental loss, for example, we sync our iPhone to our Mac computer timely to create iTunes backup. In case of any accidental iPhone data loss, you can restore your iPhone through the iTunes backup. iTunes, however, is not as reliable as it is supposed to be. Either the iTunes updating or the Mac computer crashing can wipe the iTunes backup out of your Mac or simply damage the iTunes backup file
. Whatever it is, it makes restoring lost data from iTunes backup impossible.
Now let’s get back to the trouble that the iPhone user has run into and asked for help. As there is no iTunes backup, the only way to recover the iPhone data or export the data from your iPhone directly with third party iOS data recovery software. iFonebox is such kind of software which is proficient at recovering and exporting data from iPhone when your iTunes backup is damaged and corrupted.

You can download a free trial version of iFonebox to have a try but you need to pay the full version.
Since we have work out the solution, let’s walk through the trouble step by step.
Step 1: Install and run the full version of iFonebox. Connect your iPhone to your Mac computer. Click Start after your iPhone is detected by iFonebox. In this way, you have chosen the recovery mode of “Recover from iOS Device.
