I’m trying to recover my call history from my old iPhone which has a nonworking, broken screen. When I connect it to my computer it tells me to say I trust this computer through my iPhone, which I am unable to do because of the screen being broken. My phone still works, it lights up and makes noises, but the screen is wrecked and won’t let me unlock it or select anything. Any ideas on how to get them back?
Did your iPhone break? Did you accidentally drop it and now it’s completely dead? This happens to a lot of iOS users. Maybe you care more about the important data on the phone than the device itself. Don’t be frustrated. Considering you cannot use the phone any more, if you have done backup iPhone data to iCloud, your iPhone data should be still stored in iCloud backup file. So it is possible to recover call logs from iPhone with broken screen via backup extractor tool. If you’re totally clueless, I think iFonebox can certainly help you out on this.
