If you unexpectedly lose your iPhone 6s/6s Plus/6 Plus/6/5s/5/4s/4, iPad or iPod touch, a way for you to get your important data back is to extract iTunes backup. However, the iTunes backup file can't be read directly.. In other words, you can't preview the content of it or directly choose any data you want to recover.
To fix the problem above, you need an iTunes backup extractor. RecoveryTool iPhone Data Recovery software is a mighty iTunes backup extractor to help you extract your iTunes backup file and preview all the content such as photo stream, camera roll, contacts, messages, notes, calendars, etc. to restore them as you like.
