    Will this method only display what the current phone has deleted, or also what other phones have removed using the same Internet connection?

    • Hello Will,

      If you choose “recover from iOS device” recovery mode, the software will display only content of the current iPhone. If you choose”recover from iTunes Backup” or “recover from iCloud backup” modes, it will display content in the local backup file or cloud file, no matter it belongs to whom. For example, it can also help your friend get some data back as long as he/she made a iTunes backup using your computer before. Have a nice day!
