    I’m using an iPhone 3G. I can’t open any of the software recovery apps when they’re finished downloading. I’ve tried a few more other recovery apps, and it still didn’t help, any idea what I should do?

    • Hello Jake,

      thanks for reading. I am sorry to say our software supports only iPhone 4/4S/5/5S/5C/6/6 Plus/6S/6S Plus/SE and doesn’t support to recover data from iPhone 3G. You can check more details about its specification here: Most of iPhone data recovery tools in the market don’t support iPhone 3G as well. Sorry about the news. Anyway, good luck to you, and may you have a nice day!

    Yes! This worked!! I was able to recover some very important photos. But now I am concerned about photos that I never want recovered. How can I make sure some photos will never be recovered by any one?

    • Hello Susan, thanks for your reading. We are working on a new software, which will permanently erase your iPhone data and protect your personal information. You attention is invited:)

  • Sophia

    Problem is that my iPhone 6S is totally bricked and can’t be recognized by the computer. Do you have a solution for that?

    • Hello Sophia, have you made any backup before? If yes, you can choose the “Recover from iTunes backup” or “Recover from iCloud backup” mode to extract photos from iTunes or iCloud backup without connecting your iPhone to computer. But if your iPhone can not be detected by the computer and you haven’t made any backup before, i am afraid to say that it may be difficult for you to get back the deleted photos. As far as we know, none of the iPhone data recovery programs in the market can do the job in this situation.
