Our Review of Wondershare Dr.Fone

Freaking out cause you accidently deleted photos, text messages or other crucial stuff on your iPhone, iPad or iPod? Broke or damaged your iPhone or iPad and now the data’s gone? Failed updates kill your data? So what should a iPad owner do? The answer is quite simple.Install Dr.Fone, that’s a Windows app made by Wondershare that can restore information from damaged or broken devices.

World’s 1st iPhone, iPad & iPod Touch data recovery software for personal users

Wondershare Dr.Fone is simple to use. Downloading the application is easy, and it took only a few minutes to install it on our Windows machine. Once you have installed the software you just have to connect the iPad or iPhone to the computer and start the scan. It’s really just that simple. Just follow 3 simple steps and, you can preview your lost files, recover in a snap and you’re back – like that. We were able to recover all of our previously deleted files without any issues. The fact that we were able to view the files before restoring them was a big help, since there were some files we no longer needed.

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. It will also recover audio files that are located in your Voice Memos folder. The latest version 4 can also recover App data like WhatsApp, Instagram, Flickr, iPhoto, iMovie, Kindle, etc.


Besides recover directly from iOS Device, this software can also recover lost data by using the last iTunes backup and iCloud. However, this is only useful if you’ve synced to iTunes recently or if you’re hoping to recover older files. Additionally, you’re able to preview your files before you actually recover them. This gives you the opportunity to choose only those files that you want or need to restore.

All in all, we really like Dr.Fone. With Wondershare Dr.Fone data recovery software, you won’t have to worry about losing all of your important data. This simple data recovery software for your Apple devices allows you to reclaim any lost data, avoiding the hours and frustration it would take to rebuild your smartphone’s setup. A little expensive, but well worth it.
