It is asked frequently that “Why do I need iPhone backup extractor? As you know, I have iTunes backup files.” I will answer this question with three reasons. Firstly, to protect personal privacy, iTunes backup is a kind of SQLITEDB file that is unreadable to us. Secondly, without an iPhone backup extractor, you only can restore the whole contents to your iPhone, single photos and contacts are not permitted. Thirdly, you will lose the newly added data on your iPhone when you choose to restore from iTunes because what you can get is the last iTunes backup you made. That’s why you need a third-party tool to extract iTunes backup files to avoid the troubles mentioned above.
iPhone Data Recovery is such an impressive software that can parse these unreadable iTunes backup files for you and it allows you to preview and recover lost data selectively. Additionally, it does no harm to the current data. This software can extract contacts, call history, calendar events, notes, voice memos, SMS, iMessage messages, and even App data easily from iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch backup automatically.
Please download the Windows version or Mac version trial iPhone Data Recovery here and have a test.
