Hi there, I deleted some of my notes by mistake on iPhone 8. I used iCloud to do a data backup before erasing my notes. Can I restore my notes from that backup? Please advise how do I recover them? Thanks for your help!
It seems that many iOS users have a question about how to retrieve notes that have been deleted. If you’ve backed up your device before, then you would be able to restore your iPhone from your backup. Keep in mind that if the backup is not recent it will not include anything that has been added to your iPhone since that backup was created. Also, if you backup to iCloud and you did not have notes enabled in your settings, then your notes would not be included in the backup. Hence I am going to share you an effective way to retrieve only notes from iCloud backup without restoring the whole backup file.
I can’t wait to recommend iFonebox to you as it’s capable of detecting the iCloud/ iTunes backups and displaying you all the recoverable data. It’s designed to help you recover as many as 17 kinds of data like contacts, text messages, notes, safari history, call records, reminders, events in calendar, photos, videos, voice memos, WeChat data, WhatsApp data, etc. See some other key features of the program:
- It’s highly effective and quite easy to use
- It enables you to recover data selectively thanks to its preview function
- It’s compatible with a large arrange of iOS devices as well as iOS operating systems, including iPhone X and the iOS 12
- It has three independent working modes and each mode has its specific features
- It can also be used to recover data from your iPad/iPhone/iPod directly if you don’t have a backup
Sometimes you may lose precious data in different situations such as after upgrading to the latest iOS 12, by deleting the document accidentally... Thus it’s really important to back them up to prevent data loss. At this point, iFonebox is able to separately transfer data from your device to computer. It’s fully compatible with both Windows and Mac systems. It’s necessary for you to download the suitable version for your computer. Next we will show you the detailed instructions to extract just notes from iCloud backup.
Step one: Run iFonebox and enter your Apple ID
Run the program, then just click the “Recover from iCloud Backup” at the top right of the software. You’ll be asked to sign in with your Apple ID account and password correctly.
Step two: Download data from iCloud backup
After you have selected an iCloud backup to download, it will start the downloading process. You can select all to download.
Step three: Scan data
Click on “Notes” icon to start scanning automatically. It will take some time, you should wait patiently.
Step four: Preview and download data
Now you can select the notes you want and click “Recover to pc”, then the instruction is accomplished.
