I don’t lose data on my iPhone and at iGeeksBlog none of us has ever had a pressing need for recovering deleted data but we’re aware of the possibility that something might go wrong someday. Especially, since we play around with a lot of jailbreaking tweaks and hacks.

There are plenty of ways to backup your iPhone data including iCloud, iTunes and some third-party softwares but there are very few genuinely powerful softwares that work to recover your iPhone data. And truth be told, most of them are rip-offs and costly.

We found Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery and when we tried to recover data from our iPhone, it worked like a charm.

Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery

Precisely, this is what you do:

  • Connect iPhone to computer.
  • Fire up Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery software.
  • Hit Scan.

Click on Start Scan in Tenorshare

  • Choose files to be recovered.
  • Hit Recover (which lets you recover the files in different formats depending on your selection.)

Recover Photos with TenorshareWhat I liked was that the software kept things as simple as it can. Most users aren’t tech-savvy enough to go through a long learning curve in order to recover deleted photos from their iPhones. We just want solutions that work out of the box. I think Tenorshare Data Recovery nails it right.

The software lets you recover data directly from the iPhone or from a previous iTunes backup file you’ve got. As regular users, we’re going to find ourselves wanting some photos back (photos that we deleted eons ago). Or may be you lost some contacts when you tried to sync to iCloud. Things can go wrong when you try iCloud for the first time or remove and re-add iCloud accounts.

With this software, we could recover data from as far back as 2011.

At its core, I think the best thing about Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery is that it’s designed for normal people: users who don’t have the time to read the manual and try a few times before we figure out how stuff works. Especially, when it’s about data recovery, which is a no-go.

Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery’s free version will show you all the files that it has detected (available for recovery) but in order to recover them to your computer, you’ll need to register.

TheĀ $79.95 price-tag is steep, especially considering cheaper alternatives which, I must admit, are not as simple and effective as Tenorshare although comparably so. Also, I’ve heard pretty good things about Tenorshare’s support so you’re buying into something really solid.

If you’ve really got to recover that lost data from your iPhone at any cost and do it without any hassle, Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery is your answer.

    I bought this software from MyCommerce with a money back guarantee. When I complained to MyCommerce and Tenor Share about the software being crap, I got the run around and never received a refund, even so I demanded a refund. It’s not only the software that is “bad”, but also the players involved in the distribution of this software.

    Scam. What I liked about tenorshare android recovery was the easy payment process.What I didn’t like was the Software doesn’t open. Can not get refund despite repeated requests. Scam alert. Do not buy.

    Hi, my name’s Bryan and I recently posted maybe a week or two ago about using your data recovery free trial software. The first time it didn’t recover the specific photos I was looking for and so you advised me to try the software on a different computer. I did. The first time I used it was on a Mac and the second time was on a PC. I still didn’t get the 5 photos I was looking for even after trying it on a different computer. Do you think it has anything to do with only having used the free trial version?

    • Hi.. Please contact the developers directly .. We just reviewed about the software here Tenorshare can be reached over email at: http://www.tenorshare.com/support/support.html (support@tenorshare.com)

    I know this article has been around a while, but I would like to ask a question. I am one of those people who need to recover photos and messages from an iphone. Will this product do that?

    • kate

      It gives you back your photos but only in thumb nail size. so they are super blurry and tiny.
