How To View Files Backed Up On iCloud?

So I recently wiped an old iPhone to give to a relative, but before that I backed it up using iCloud to save my reminders etc. How can I view these reminders/sync them onto my mac so that I can see them? I cannot see them even though my mac says it backed up the phone…Please help! I really hope I haven’t lost all these reminders!

If you’ve synced to iCloud before, you cannot view files backed up on iCloud without restoring it to an iOS device, and restoring a backup is an all or nothing proposition, which will completely erase the current contents of the device and replace it with the backup. Since iCloud backup truly comes with this limit, you need a reliable tool which is able to get access to the backup file and enable you to view documents saved on iCloud. The most suitable tool for this job is iFonebox for the simple reason that is very easy to use and highly effective in this task. Below are some of its other features:

  • It’s designed to extract up to 17 kinds of data such as contacts, photos, videos, texts, notes, etc.
  • 100% safe and will not result in further data loss
  • Can be used to extract data from iCloud/iTunes backup as well as export data directly from iOS device
  • Come with a preview function so that you can see what is stored in Cloud
  • Compatible with all kinds of iOS devices including iPhone X

iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to download and install the right version for your computer. Once you have installed the program, keep reading to learn the instructions.
