My child have entered too many passcode and it has been disabled. I know it must be connected to iTunes to restore it. I really don’t want to lose my stuff, so are there any third party tools (preferably free or low price) that would be able to recover data from disabled phone?
The passcode lock feature is to protect access to data on the iPhone in the event the iPhone is lost or stolen. If you enter the wrong passcode on an iOS device six times in a row, you’ll be locked out and a message will say that your device is disabled. Since you cannot bypass apple’s security, you should erase your device with recovery mode to remove your passcode. However, many iOS users would care less about the phone, but they want the data on it. Actually, to recover data from disabled iPhone, you should have an available backup no matter iTunes or iCloud. And a professional iOS backup extractor called iFonebox might do you a big favor.
It’s designed to help you selectively recover/download up to 17 kinds of data like contacts, photos, notes, videos, calendar events, safari bookmarks, call history, WeChat data, WhatsApp data, etc. Some of its highly useful features include the following:
- It is very easy to use, all you need is to select the backup file, and the program will do the rest
- The preview function will show you all the recoverable information
- You can choose data to retrieve instead of restoring the whole backup
- The progress can be completed in a very short time without losing any current data
The minute you lose data on your device, you will have a new-found appreciation for a backup. But what happens when you don’t have any backup file? Don’t worry, iFonebox is also ideal to scan and recover data directly from your device even if you don’t have a backup. Note that this will only happen if the missing data haven’t been overwritten. To prevent overwriting the lost data, simply stop using the device if you find out some of the data is vanished.
iFonebox works well on almost all iOS devices, including iPhone X. There are two versions available: Mac version and Windows version. Just download the free trial version of the program and have a try. Then you will actually recognized it as the quickest and safest way to save content if your iPhone is disabled.
