For iPhone users, when the new iOS system version is released, they may want to update the iOS version. In general, there are two ways to upgrade iOS: wireless or use iTunes. If you upgrade your iOS version via iTunes, you can enter the “Attempting data recovery” process. This is what we are discussing today.
iPhone attempting data recovery is very common for iPhone users. When you encounter this problem, please don’t worry about it too much. After completing this process, your iPhone will return to normal and all data will be in good condition.
However, there is an exception: a small number of iPhone users reflect that this attempting data recovery process fails finally and some of their important iPhone data are missing. In this case, is there a way to recover the lost iPhone data?
When you search this iPhone attempting data recovery issue on the internet, you will discover that there is no official explanation about it until now. Generally, most iPhone users consider it as a normal step of the iOS version update process. But if iPhone data loss issue happens, what should you do to make iPhone data recovery?
How to Recover iPhone Data
For iPhone data recovery, there are many tools helpful to recover files from dead, corrupted, formatted iPhone devices. I also search it on the internet and find MiniTool Mobile Recovery for iOS useful because it has three powerful recovery modules: Recover from iOS device, Recover from iCloud Backup File and Recover from iTunes Backup File.
With these three recovery modules, you can recover iOS data not only from your iPhone directly but also from the backup files such as iTunes backup and iCloud backup. The supported recoverable data types are various, such as photos, videos, messages, contacts, call history and more.
So, how to recover your iPhone data if iPhone attempting data recovery process is failed? You can firstly download the Free Edition to have a try. Besides, if you are using MacBook, this software has Mac version for you to choose.
Obviously, these three recovery modules focus on different situations:
The first case, if you want to recover data from your iPhone directly, you need to use the Recover from iOS Device module.
As to this recovery module, you should know that it can only recover the lost iPhone data which are not overwritten by new data. So, when data loss issue happens after iPhone attempting data recovery process fails, please stop using your iPhone as soon as possible to prevent the lost data from being overwritten.
In addition, to make this recovery module work successfully, you need to install the iTunes App to your computer you are going to use.
Follow the steps:
- Download it and launch it normally on the computer;
- Connect your iPhone devices to the computer and you can see the main interface, and select Recover from iOS Device to scan your iPhone.
- After the scanning, you can see the previous files displayed on the list. Select them and click Save to a safe location.
The second case, if there is an available iTunes backup file, you can use Recover from iTunes Backup File module to get your lost iPhone data back.
Before using this recovery module, you should guarantee that the target iTunes backup file is saved on the computer you are going to use. Of course, a copied one is also available. Users only need to follow the steps:
Launch this tool and select Recover from iTunes Backup File to scan the iPhone device. And when the files displayed in the scanning results, select them and click Save to recover the lost files.
The third case, if you have made an iCloud backup when your iPhone iOS version is earlier than V 9.0, you can try Recover from iTunes Backup File module to restore your iPhone data.
It is a pity that this iPhone data recovery module can’t get the iOS 9 and the later versions iCloud backup files due to the limitations of iCloud.
After reading the introduction of these three recovery modules, you can choose a suitable one according to your own situation to retrieve your lost iPhone data. Steps are here:
Launch this tool, and on the main interface, select Recover from iTunes Backup File and click Scan to make a scan for your iPhone device. And when the files displayed in the scanning results, select them and click Save to recover the lost files.
When your iPhone is experiencing an attempt to recover data, I don’t think you will think it is difficult. There are many data recovery tools helpful. You only need to select the best suitable one to recover the files from iPhone device. Personally, MiniTool Mobile Recovery for iOS is easy to operate and effective for recovery.
