What If You Lost Data After Upgrading to iOS 9 (9.2)

Since iOS 9 is available in the market, iOS users can't wait to upgrade their iPhone or iPad for new features and functions. Unfortunately, while upgrading to iOS 9, many users have encountered data loss issue like contacts, messages, photos, and other contents. To help you get out of this terrible situation, in this guide, we offer you 3 methods to recover deleted or lost data from iPhone/iPad after iOS 9 upgrade.

For many users, every time when they delete or lose important contents from iPhone/iPad, restoring their iDevice becomes the only way to get back lost files or data. Indeed, restoring iDevice with created iTunes or iCloud backup is a convenient and free way to recover lost iPhone or iPad data, while it also has some serious disadvantages like:

  1. You have made an iTunes or iCloud backup in advance, and this backup contains the files you want to retrieve.
  2. When restoring with iCloud backup, you need to get access to a Wi-Fi network that is stable and fast, or you need to spend much time on this restoring process.
  3. Once restored your iDevice with an iTunes or iCloud backup, all the contents on your iDevice will be replaced by the contents in the backup.
  4. The restoring process is time-consuming and full of unexpected errors that may lead to a secondary data loss or restore failure.

That's reason why many people wonder whether there is a way to selectively extract what I want from iTunes or iCloud backup without restoring iDevice when losing some important data from iPhone iPad. In this post we will recommend you an iOS data recovery software- iRefone for Mac, which allows you to extract anything you like contacts, notes, messages, calendars, photos, voice memos, call history from an iTunes or iCloud backup, and also allows you to recover deleted or lost iOS contents on iPad, iPhone, iPod touch directly without any iTunes or iCloud backup. For Windows users, iRefone is just the right app for you to retrieve lost data from iPhone, iPad after iOS 9 update.
