I accidentally lost some important data on my iPhone. I want to restore iPhone from iCloud selectively instead of resetting my iPhone. How can I do that?
iCloud backup file is not a common file that we can't access it directly and get data form it without losing the original data on our phone. If you would like to restore iCloud backup selectively, you need a third-party tool. iPhone Data Recovery is highly recommended to do the job for you.
iPhone Data Recovery, as powerful iCloud recovery software, gives you a helpful way to restore data from iCloud backup. With its help, you can easily view the content of the iCloud backup file and selectively recover the data you want on the computer, such as contacts, pictures, songs, videos, text messages, notes, etc.
Download the software and have a try.
Here are the data iCloud take backup for you:
Apple Watch backups
Home screen and app organization
iMessage, text (SMS), and MMS messages (requires the SIM card that was in use during backup)
Photos and videos on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
Purchase history from Apple services, like your music, movies, TV shows, apps, and books
Visual Voicemail password (requires the SIM card that was in use during backup)
Your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch backup only include information and settings stored on your device. It doesn't include the information already stored in iCloud, like Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks, Mail, Notes, shared photos, iCloud Photo Library, My Photo Stream, and files you store in iCloud Drive.
Step 1. Choose Recovery mode and sign in your iCloud account
After installing iPhone Data Recovery software, run it on your computer. On the main window, select "Data Recovery" and turn to the mode "Recover from iCloud Backup Files". Log in your iCloud account by typing your Apple ID and password. You have no need to worry about the security of your account, as the program won't keep your account information.
Step 2. Extract the iCloud backup file
Once logged in, you can see all your iCloud backup files displayed on the frame. Choose the one where you want to restore data from and click the button "Download" to extract the iCloud backup file. To save your time, in the pop-up window, you can also choose the type of files you would like to download.
Step 3. Preview and restore data from iCloud backup
After a few minutes for the download, all found data such as photos, music, contacts, messages, etc. will be displayed on the interface. You can preview them in detail and check them one by one. Then choose the items you desire and click the button "Recover" to save them on the computer.
Contacts, messages and notes can be directly saved to your iPhone/iPad/iPod touch if your iOS device is connected with your computer via USB cable during the recovery process.
