I recently decided to use iCloud to store my documents. I want to download pictures from an earlier iCloud backup to my computer, can you instruct me how to do this please? I would like to download the iPhone backup data, and then delete it, so there will be more room for pics. Anyone can help? Thanks in advance!
Many iOS users should had encounter that kind of issues but the vast majority of them cannot figure it out. Apple provides us the only way to get access to backup file is to operate a completely restoration with an iOS device. But I have to point that it enquires you to erase all the existing data and settings on your device first. This seems to be the opposite of what one should expect. Fortunately, there is a simple solution that can help you work it through.
iFonebox is a professional iOS backup extractor/recovery program which can help you easily move documents from iCloud to computer. With its preview function, you’re allowed to view up to 17 kinds of data from that backup, like photos, contacts, notes, messages, call records, safari history, videos, voice memos, WeChat data, WhatsApp data, etc. Let’s take a brief look at some other features of the software:
- Three powerful recovery modes: recover form iOS device, recover from iTunes backup, recover from iCloud backup
- It’s very easy to use and protect your personal information well
- Selectively recovery instead of restoring the whole backup file
- It’s highly effective and won’t cost you much time
- You’re allowed to extract data from iCloud to computer without an iOS device
It is one of the best software available and fully compatible with both Windows and Mac systems. It’s necessary for you to download the suitable version for your computer. Next we will show you the detailed instructions to help you easily download information from iCloud to desktop.
