“I finally updated to the newest iOS. My iPad went into a forced recovery – I lost everything. The only things I care about are 2 notes where I kept track of all of both of my babies 'firsts' - is there any way to get these notes back?” -------- from Apple Discussion Community
Baby’s firsts are always the most precious things in the world for parents, so I understand how desperate and frustrated this iPad user is. This is not necessarily the end of the world, however, since there must be a way to help people like this iPad user out and retrieve the lost notes to your iPad.
There are dozens of third party software claiming to be able to recover lost data from iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, but few can recover lost notes caused by iOS 8.3 updating. So the most secured way to recover lost data like Contacts and Notes etc is to recover from iTunes backup file, provided that you have backed up your iPad to iTunes previously, or you had checked the automatic back up in iTunes. Here I would like recommend iFonebox
which can help you recover lost Notes from iTunes backup file and transfer directly back to your iPad and iPhone.
Here are the detailed steps about how to restore lost or deleted notes with iFonebox. You can firstly download the trial version to have a try but you need to buy the registered version to virtually recover the lost notes to your iPad.
Step 1: Install and run the full version of iFonebox, Choose “Recover from iTunes Backup” and then Select the backup file from which you want to recover your lost notes.
Step2: Choose Notes to recover by clicking on the icon for Notes.
Step3: Preview the notes extracted from the iTunes backup file and you can selectively recover the deleted notes back to your iPad. Also, you can do some modifications before the recovering.
