Most iPhone users know how to recover or transfer their data using iCloud or iTunes, but there are other ways to recover deleted iPhone data. There are several third-party options for those who accidentally deleted something they want to recover or lost some data in a crash.

A free option to recover deleted iPhone data

One free option is EaseUS MobiSaver. This software enables users to recover their contacts, messages, photos, videos, notes or other content. It’s fairly easy to use. After downloading and installing the software, it takes only three steps to recover deleted iPhone data.

Upon startup, the software scans the device and lists all the deleted files it found. You can preview the list to look at each item if you are looking only for a specific file that got deleted. Tapping “recover” will restore the files you want to get back. This software is free, unlike some of the other options on this list.

Paid recovery options

Tenorshare from UltData is another option if you need to recover deleted iPhone data. However, it is quite expensive at $149 for a one-year license. The software is quite versatile because it can recover data lost due to a virus, system crash, water damage, or other problems. Tenorshare even works with devices that have been jailbroken or disabled. It enables you to recover more than 35 different types of files, including WhatsApp messages, contacts, photos, your Safari history, voicemail, FaceTime messages, voice memos and more. You can even restore your chat history without backing up your iPhone. This software offers three different recovery modes: from the device itself, from iTunes or from iCloud. To use UltData, you download it onto your PC or Mac and connect your device to it via a USB cable.

iMyFone D-Back offers a 30-day money back guarantee. The easiest way to use it is the “Smart Recovery” mode, which requires you to choose how you lost the data and then scan the device looking for it. You can also scan from your iPhone itself or from iTunes or iCloud. Like the other software, you must connect your device to your computer using a USB cable. There is also an additional mode which will help you fix a number of iOS problems, like being stuck on a white or black screen, reboot loops and more. It does work on jailbroken iPhones, but they will be restored to default mode and updated to the latest version of iOS after using it.

Joyoshare iPhone Data Recovery will bring back data lost due to deletion, broken devices and system crashes. The software will recovery more than 20 different types of files via iDevice, an iTunes backup or an iCloud backup. Like the others on this list, it offers the option to preview recovered data before actually restoring it so that you don’t restore every single thing you deleted recently.
