How do I recover iPhone data after restore?
How do I recover photos from iPhone 5s after restore? I had not backed it up, neither had I recently synced as iCloud was off.
You may encounter similar problems: an iPhone system error occurred, and you have to restore to factory settings for your iPhone. Unfortunately, you lost all data on iPhone after restore. The worst case is that you don't even have an iTunes or iCloud backup which you can restore from. Does this mean that all the contacts, text messages, photos, etc. on your iPhone 5s are gone for good?
Not necessarily. With the help of some third party software, you can recover iPhone 5s after restore even without any backup. For instance, the iPhone Data Recovery tool we'll talk about in this post allows you to recover data directly from your iPhone 5s.
