  • Mary

    My iPhone crashed and I need to recover some info. I saw this and will use it to find what I need. If we can recover information without backing up my phone, then what is the need to ever back up my phone? (I thought backing up info was important). Thanks!

    • Hello Mary, sorry for the late response. Backing up your iPhone data is always very important for everyone. Having backups is much better than no backups at all. When you lost some important data by accident, the first thing to do is to check if you have made a relevant backup before. If you have, you can simply restore your iPhone to the backup using iTunes or iCloud. 3rd-party iPhone data recovery tools like our iMyfone D-Back are the last chance for someone who lost data without backup. So try to back up your data regularly before the big change happens.
