How to Use Syncios Data Recovery for Mac?

It happens to everyone once in a while. You deleted something off your iPhone and didn't realize you'd actually need or want it later. Lcukily, Syncios Data Recovery allows you to recover data by three ways: Recover from iOS devices and recover from iTunes and iCloud backup. No matter which way you choose, the first step is to download and install the software on your computer. Then follow the way below to get back your data.

Mode 1: Recover Lost Data from iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch Directly

This mode allows you to scan your iOS devices to recover lost data or deleted data, including contacts, text messages, iMessages, call history, notes, calendars, reminders and safari bookmarks from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
