How to Recover Your Data from iOS Device
This scenario is based on MacBook Pro running El Capitan. The PhoneRescue software passed the virus scan as 100% free of virus/malware issues. Also, it is worthy to note that iMobie is an Apple Certified Developer, so there's no reason for fear as its software have passed some rigorous testing by Apple.
And the scanning process is read-only, as such it won't affect any existing data on your device. It explicitly ask your permission before accessing your data from iCloud, but still it is recommended that you keep a back up of your data on the device before using the software.
The download and installation process is pretty easy; it launches with an animation of PhoneRescue icon, which is followed by the “Quick Tips" window. The window contains a list of instructions on how to maximize the process of data recovery.
It offers four recovery modes: Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes Backup, Recover from iCloud, and iOS Repair Tools. But in this review we’d be talking about how to recover your messages from iPhone.
Procedure to Recover Messages on iPhone
This is the first mode and it is best for recovering items deleted from your iPhone including: photos, videos, messages, etc. And it is ideal especially if you don't have backups or you’re unable to retrieve the content from iTunes or iCloud.
First, make sure your iOS device has been recognized by your computer. Then the app will begin to analyze your device, the process takes only a few seconds.
The results will be ready within few minutes, and then you can select the messages you want to restore from the recovery list.
It worthy to note that “Recover from iOS Device” mode tends to discover more files than what was actually deleted, which makes it a bit time-consuming to sort out the particular files you want to recover.
PhoneRescue is perhaps a good choice, when you accidentally delete messages off an iPhone, as it gives you the assurance of recovering your lost data.
The price starts at $49.99 for Single license (1 PC), and $69.99 for Family License (5 PCs). Though, there’s a FREE version for both Windows & Mac to try out the software.
