How to Recover Deleted Files from iPhone

By Louis Habersham, 05/02/2015, updated on 21/01/2022

What high-tech iPhone brings us is not only convenience but sometimes trouble such as to recover deleted files from iPhone. I recently changed from iPhone 6s Plus to iPhone 7 Plus. I deleted my iDevice entirely after a backup in a USB flash disk was made. Unexpectedly, the flash disk was lost, and I had no access to get my data back. Similar situations are so common among iOS users as me. And have you ever been brought to the corner by this problem without no solutions?

My problem was eventually eliminated by a recovery program called iPhone Data Recovery. This application is created to retrieve various files in iPhone 7/7 Plus/SE/6s/6s Plus, and etc. Documents can be restored directly from iPhone, regained from iTunes backup files as well as iCloud backup.

Note: iPhone Recovery offers 3 modes to recover the contacts. They will be further introduced in succession.
