Our Review of Wondershare Dr.Fone for Mac

Time may have moved on but there’s still one nightmare that’s hard for any iDevice user to escape: file loss. There are already several programs aimed at saving iDevice users from this kind of disaster but a new arrival, Wondershare Dr.Fone for Mac, might win over a few converts.This is an amazing utility that every iPhone, iPad or iPod touch owner should be aware of.

Dr. Fone brings iPhone and iPad files back from the dead.

Wondershare Dr.Fone for Mac is simple to use. Downloading the application is easy, and it took only a few minutes to install it on our Mac machine. Once you have installed the software you’ll find the app provides you with 2 quick and simple ways to get it all back on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Either way, you can clearly preview all contacts, text messages, photos, and much more before recovery. You can also selectively recover what you want—something you can’t do with iTunes!


Dr. Fone for Mac works under all kinds of data loss situations like accidentally deleting the file from iDevice, failed update, virus infection,improper operation, unexpected lost and unexpected broken of your iDevice.The software works brilliantly under all situations and is compatible with iPad 2/1, the New iPad, iPad with Retina display & iPad mini, iPhone 5S/5C/4S/4/3GS, and iPod Touch 5. It does not modify the original data in any way and therefore you get the same data that was visible on the earlier original file. Additionally, you’re able to preview your files before you actually recover them. This gives you the opportunity to check the information or videos and choose only those files that you want or need to restore.

So a much better bet is the program will recover 15 different types of data from your iPhone, iPod or iPad. We were able to recover lost images and videos that were stored in our Camera Roll, as well as message attachments and WhatsApp conversation. It will also recover audio files that are located in your Voice Memos folder.

Dr. Fone is completely safe and therefore there is no harm in installing it on your Mac. The program does not write anything in your original files and therefore you can be sure that you can restore your deleted files in the best possible way.

That’s it. Easy, fast (relatively speaking) and a life saver in those situations where your iDevice failed or glitched and those critical files just have to be recovered. At $99.95 it’s fairly pricey, but if it helps you avoid wasting even two hours of your time recreating something that’s been lost due to a device broken, it’s money well spent and with the combination of zero quality loss, it’s a great addition to iDevice.
