      Summary: Lost your iPhone and now worried about your precious data on it? This post shares how efficiently Stellar Data Recovery for iPhone can recover lost data from a lost or stolen iPhone using iCloud Backup.

      When we lose our phone, then the only thing we worry about is the valuable data stored on it. To recover all our critical data (contacts, messages, photos, videos, voice memo, etc.) all we need to do is restore them either from iTunes or iCloud backup. What if due to some unknown reasons, we are unable to access the backup? Well, in such cases we can still recover our files from the backup via Stellar Data Recovery for iPhone software.

      Apple is known for its flagship features and, one of them being able to automatically backup the iPhone data. ICloud and iTunes automatically back up iPhone data and updates it whenever you sync it to your Mac. The advantage of these backup systems is that you can recover your data when your iOS device is lost or stolen.

      Speaking of which, a friend of mine lost his iPhone and was looking for ways to restore his critical data. As he had saved the information by backing it up, all he had to do was transfer the information to the new iOS device. However, as luck would have it, he was unable to access the backup files either.

      To get rid of the deadlock, he decided to look for a third-party application which can recover iPhone data, and after some analysis, he opted for iPhone Data Recovery Software by Stellar.

      1. I lost my girlfriends phone on holiday. Her iCloud back up is off and she never backed it up in a laptop. Can we get any off memories back. She’s gutted

        1. Hi Will, I understand that this situation can be disheartening. We believe that you must have already tried to locate your girlfriend’s iPhone using “Find My” to track the device’s location, play a sound, or erase its data remotely. Also, you must have Contacted the Local Authorities to report the incident to local law enforcement. Provide them with the necessary details, including the device’s serial number or IMEI number, to increase the chances of recovery.
          Unfortunately, if the iPhone is not found, and there are no backups available, it may be challenging to recover the lost data and memories. Encourage your girlfriend to take this as an opportunity to start fresh and remind her to regularly back up her devices in the future to prevent similar incidents from causing permanent data loss.
          I hope you and your girlfriend can find some peace of mind in this difficult time.
