How to Extract Data from iPhone with/without Backup

iPhone stores very important files for us. Extracting the data from iPhone is what we should do in case we need them for certain purpose or we lose them accidentally. Apple enables users to back up the data to iCloud or iTunes. That makes your data double protected. If you do not have the content you want on your iPhone currently, it is also necessary to extract data from the iPhone backups.

Here we would like to recommend an extraction tool that makes it viable to extract data from iPhone without or with backups.
