“So I’ve just noticed my notes are missing. I have no idea when or how they went but they are not there?(My iPhone 4S and iMac are all up to date software wise) I’ve been trying to find out how to restore just my notes from an iCloud backup. I don’t want to restore contacts etc as I’m fairly sure I’ve added a few more since the iCloud backup. I downloaded some software called Wondershare Dr.Fone and can see my files are on an iCloud backup. Anyhow, I see the notes I want to restore so iCloud has them somewhere out there. I cannot restore them via Wondershare unless I register with them at a cost of $80 I think it was. Too expensive. Any other fixes? Thank you.”
The above was extracted from Apple community and I feel so sorry about the user’s situation. But What I want to say is that if you want to restore only notes from your iCloud backup, you have to rely on the third party software to help you extract and recover only notes from iCloud backup. Otherwise, if you want those lost notes, you have to reset your iPhone 4S and then restore the whole iCloud backup to your iPhone 4S.
As we all know that Dr Fone is pretty expensive but, iFonebox is much cheaper. As to the recovery functions, iFonebox is better and more accurate in our test. Keep reading and learn more about iFonebox.
