Our Review of Leawo iOS Data Recovery

Ask yourself this: How important is the data on your iPhone or iPad to you? Whether it’s the priceless photos you keep or the important contacts you have stored on your device. Chances are that your data is very important to you. Once that data is gone, then it’s actually gone from your device unless you have software like the Leawo iOS Data Recovery. A great program that gives you access to your data through your device or a simple iTunes backup.

Recover deleted data from iPhone/iPad/iPod touch effortlessly

The application gives you the choice to either recover files straight from your device or through an iTunes backup. Device recovery is very straightforward. Just plug in your device and press start. This will show you files on your device right now. Additionally, you can put your device into DFU mode to recover files you’ve deleted or lost. To extract an iTunes backup, simply choose the file you want to access. Doing any of the methods listed above is very easy thanks to the application’s very simply user interface. The 8 deleted files that can be recovered under DFU mode contain Camera Roll Photos & Videos, contacts, Messages (SMS, MMS, iMessages), Call histories, Notes, Calendars and Reminders. The 6 deleted data to be recovered by directly scanning iOS device under general mode include Contacts, Messages (SMS, MMS, iMessages), Call History, Notes, Calendars and Reminders.

Besides data recovery function, the program is also equipped with iTunes backup extracting as well as data backup functions, which can quickly scan and extract 12 kinds of files from iTunes backup or obtain and backup the 12 kinds of files by directly scanning your iOS devices. On top of that, the program enables you to export all the scanned files to the local PC in batch.

Another nice spotlights about the software is its humanized features, which assist you to quickly find your desired files by searching the file name or file extensions, filtering and sorting the files by different file parameters like name,title, type, date, etc., or previewing the files in intuitive thumbnails.

For the most part, Leawo iOS Data Recovery is excellent for what it is. If you use Windows and own an iOS device, it’s great to own. iCloud and iTunes backup are both great but they don’t offer access to deleted or lost files. If you’re interested, you should probably download the free trial first.
