Losing data on your new iPhone 8 is a common occurrence. It can happen for any reason including accidental deletion of data. You can also lose the data on your iPhone 8 if the device is somehow damaged including hardware and software damage. This means that if you jailbreak the iPhone and the process doesn’t go according to plan, you may lose data in the process. It can also happen that sometime during a simple software update, some of the data can be lost.
Having a backup can help in these situations but there are times when you can lose data that is not included in the backup files. In this case, you need an alternate solution that will help you get your data back. In this article, we provide you with that alternate solution and show you how to use it.

To recover the deleted data on your iPhone 8, you will need a powerful iPhone data recovery tool that is designed to simplify the process, making it easy to access the deleted data. That data recovery tool is iMyFone D-Back iPhone data recovery, a software that will help you recover nearly all types of data including photos, videos, SMS, call logs and more. It will scan your iPhone 8, iTunes backup and iCloud backup deeply to find the hidden deleted data in your device or your backup files.
How to Recover Deleted iPhone 8 Data
Before we get to how to use D-Back to recover deleted iPhone 8 data.
