Data loss is always a frustrating thing whether you've accidently deleted valuable data on your iPhone, or lost data because of iOS update, jailbreak, iPhone lost or damaged and other reasons. Do you want to let those valuable contacts, photos, messages, notes, call history and so on disappear or want to recover them from you iPhone?

Here, we provide two data loss situations that iPhone users may come across frequently. For each situation, we offer you corresponding easy and quick methods about how to recover data from iPhone.

Situation 1. Your iPhone is still available.

Situation 2. Your iPhone is not available.

Method 1. How to Recover Data from iPhone Directly

If your iPhone is still available, and you have no backup files, you can follow this guide to help you selectively recover data from the iPhone in a quick way even without any backups in iTunes or iCloud.

Step 1. First of all, download a product such as PhoneRescue, install it, and run PhoneRescue.

Step 2. Connect your iPhone to the computer.

Step 3. Click "Start Scan" on the window to scan your iPhone.

Step 4. Preview and retrieve data by clicking "Recover".

With this recovering method, you don't need to worry about whether your iPhone's data is deleted or lost, even if you haven't backup files via iTunes or iCloud. No matter what data you deleted or lost, such as contacts, messages, photos, notes, Safari Bookmarks, etc.  PhoneRescue can help you get them back.

Method 2. How to Recover Data from iPhone Backup

If your iPhone has been broken, lost, or stolen, but you backed up your iPhone with iTunes before, you can recover data from your iPhone by extracting it from the iTunes backup.

It is as simple as recover directly from iPhone in Method 1. The only difference is that you should choose "Recover from iTunes Backup" option and select an iTunes backup of your iPhone to recover.

Choose "Recover from iTunes Backup" option > Select a backup you need > Click "Start Scan" > Preview contents in details and select items what you need > Click "Recover".

Recovering data from iTunes backup is much quicker by comparison, as the data is already on your computer. However, you should make sure that you've backed up your iPhone with iTunes.

Above two methods of recovery are equally efficient and easy for iPhone data recovery.
