How to Restore iCloud Backup to iPhone X Selectively

If you already have an iCloud backup of your device, you should be commended for the steps you have taken to safeguard the data on your device. A backup’s importance cannot be overstated especially because of just how easy it is to lose some of the data on your device. When your device automatically backs up your data to iCloud, getting it back is just a matter of restoring the device.

Cons of Restoring from iCloud Backup

Yet sometimes restoring the device from an iCloud backup is not the easiest or the best thing to do. To begin with, you would need to erase all contents and settings on your device if you want to even begin the process. This means that you could lose some of the data on your device that wasn’t included in the backup. It is OK to do this if you’ve lost almost all of the data on your device since it will be more important to get your old data. But what if, you’ve only lost a photo or two or just a few messages?

It is not possible to see what the iCloud backup file contains, let alone be able to restore just some of the data. Yet, a certain tool allows you to do just that. Keep reading if you’ve lost some data and don’t want to restore the entire device.
