I am not sure how excited you are when the iOS 8.4 was announced to be released by the end of this month together with Apple’s Streaming music service on WWDC 2015. One thing I am sure is that you must be very frustrated when you found your data lost after the iOS 8.4 update. And the data lost in the process of updating to iOS 8.4 probably had been overwritten and erased forever, and there is no way to retrieve the data directly from you iPhone or iPad
As iPhone or iPad users you must have created backup with iTunes unless it was the first days you were using your iPhone or iPad, in which case data loss does not mean a thing as there is no important data at all. With iTunes backup file, recovering the lost data
turns out to be a mission possible. According to our customers’ feedback, they can recover up to 80% of the data even with a corrupted backup file with iFonebox. Besides, with iFonebox, you can recover the lost data selectively from the iTunes backup file, rather than restore the entire iTunes backup file which may result in data overriding and permanent data loss.
You can download a free trial version to have a try but you need to pay for the full version if you want to recover the lost data from iTunes backup file successfully.
Here I am going to demonstrate how to recover the lost data caused by iOS 8.4 update from iTunes backup file step by step.
Step 1: Install and run the full version of iFonebox, and click “Recover from iTunes Backup” on the startup interface and then you will be brought to the interface asking to select an iTunes backup file from the list. The most current version is recommended because it may contain the most data on your iPhone or your iPad.
Step 2: When you are presented with an interface listing all the supported data types, it means you can choose any data you have lost and want to recover by clicking on the corresponding icon. Or you can choose to check “Recover All” to export all the supported data to your computer for convenient reading or record keeping.
Step 3: Take a preview of all the exported data and do some modifications if you want before recovering to your computer or directly to your iPhone or iPad.
Note: iFonebox is capable of recovering Notes and Contacts directly back to iPhone and iPad currently.
