Apple launched the iOS 8.2 a couple of weeks ago, and it is the biggest iOS 8 upgrade yet. It does fixing some problems, and bugs remain as many as it used to be. Quite a number of people posted and complained that the update had caused data loss. They were filled with expectation of getting problems solved only to find that things were end up with precious data loss.
Actually, I haven’t seen much experience improvement with iOS 8.2, I doubt that Apple continued down a path with the update by making no guarantee of data security which worried quite a number of users.
This does not mean there is no way to get the lost data back. So long as you have synced and backed your iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch up to iTunes/iCloud, all you need is an iOS recovery application. iFonebox is a preferred choice.
, you are able to recover lost Contacts,Notes, Reminders, Photoes, Messages, and Messages Attachment, Safari Bookmarks, and Voice Memos from iTunes/iCloud backup file on your Mac. You can not only export Contacts and Notes back from iTunes to your Mac but also to transfer them directly back to your iOS devices.
You can download the trial version for free to have a try, but you need to purchase a full version if you want to get the lost data due to iOS 8.2 update back to your Mac.
Now let’ s get started to get the lost data back on a Mac.
Step 1: Launch the iFonebox and choose Recovery Mode
Install and launch the full version of the iFonebox. Click “Recover from iTunes Backup”and then the software will ask you to choose the backup you want to extract.
