Losing data from your iPad can be painful as most of the people store their important data in their iPads. The loss of data can be because of any of the reasons-accidental deletion, formatting error, lost or stolen iPad or water damage.

If you are an iPad user and reading this post, there is no doubt your iPad data is somehow lost, and you are looking for an optimal solution. Well, you have come to the right place.

Irrespective of how you lost your iPad data at the first place, this article depicts every possible solution to iPad data recovery. Before we get to the point, there are a few basic things we’d like you to understand.

Q 1. Where Do the Files Go after Deletion?

iOS devices use a unique database called SQLite which holds onto the deleted data for a certain time. When a certain type of data is stored on iPad, it is marked as “Allocated Data” and when the system deletes it, it is marked as “Unallocated Data” and disappears from the device – while remaining in the device.

Therefore, do not use iPad (downloading new apps, updating apps, or using the camera etc.) after data deletion because the new data saved on the device can overwrite the lost data. in such cases, using a third-party data recovery software is the best solution to recover data from iOS devices.

This whole process seems a little bit problematic? As iOS devices are known for data security and safety, make sure to keep making backups of your data regularly to avoid such problems.

  1. Easy-to-use, virus-free, and secure.
  2. Able to provide an utmost probability of data retrieval.
