How to Restore iPhone from Backup

Losing the data from your iPhone can happen for lots of reasons, including:your iPhone are broken or stolen; all data in iPhone is erased when repairing; data loses after iOS upgrade; intentionally or accidentally delete files from your iPhone; iPhone factory resetting; corruption making data loss.

No one can predict when the disaster will strike, but it happens. Therefore, do not forget to make regular backups for your important data. Then you can easily restore your iPhone from backup files. If you use iTunes as your iPhone manager, you should know there is auto backup generated by iTunes when you sync iPhone with it.

How to restore iPhone from backup

However, things go a little difficultly. The iTunes-generated backup is a SQlitedb file, which you can't view, or extract any content from. To get the content, you need a recovery that allows you to preview and restore iPhone from the backup.

My recommendation is Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS Mac, or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS, which enables you to preview and restore the backup file, no matter you are using iPhone 5, 4S, 4, 3GS, or other models. You can restore them all or restore them selectively.

Download the trial version below for free to have a try.
