Have you ever found yourself in a situation when you lost your iPhone data following an upgrade to the latest iOS? Have you accidentally deleted your data from your iPhone or iPad and realized that you did not have a good backup of your idevice data?
These moments can be very frustrating. Apple always recommends us to back up our iPhone data using iTunes or iCloud before installing a new iOS update. There are always those moments when we forget to do this and find ourselves in a difficult situation having lost our idevice data.
There are many tools out there that can help you reclaim some or all of your lost information for your iPhone. One of the most popular products is Dr Fone from WonderShare. This product from wondershare helps you when you are experiencing some of the following difficult moments:
