Below are the detailed guides of how to recover deleted files from your iPhone directly. No matter you lost files because of update or jailbreak of iOS, the iphone data recovery can scan for lost files and then recover for you. You are allowed to preview files before recovery.

But there is one thing you need to know: Before running the recovery app, you’re supposed to download the latest version of iTunes. To avoid the automatically sync, don’t launch iTunes when running it. I suggest you disable the automatically syncing in iTunes beforehand: launch iTunes > Preferences > Devices, check “Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically”.

Step 2: Scan Your Device
Click the Start Scan button to let this program scan your iOS devices. The number of your files determines the time of scanning. During the scanning process, you can click the “Pause” button to stop the process if you see the files you’re looking for.

Once the process is done, lost and existing files on your device are displayed in categories.

And you can see there is a search box on the top right of the window which you can search for a specific file by typing a keyword in it.

Step 4: Recover Data from Your ISO Device
When you find the files you want, just put the check mark in front of the box to select them. And then, click the “Recover” button at the bottom right of the window. By default, the recovered files will be saved to your Windows.
