“I lost all my calendar info including entries that I had manually added into my iPhone 5. Unfortunately I didn’t sync my iPhone 5 to iTunes or iCloud. So I am out of luck to restore the lost calendar events from the backup file. My iTunes only has the most recent backup (which was after the info was lost), and I do not have iCloud. I don’t care about the past events and I badly need my future appointments, meetings, and follow-ups that I added into the calendar. Do you have any suggestions?”
This is what one of our customers complained yesterday. According to the description above, the custom didn’t sync the manually added appointment to iTunes or iCloud before the calendar loss happen. Therefore it is impossible to get back the lost calendar events through restoring the iPhone from iTunes or iCloud backup file. And I believe the iPhone is the only place where the manually added has been previously stored.
Since iTunes or iCloud does not allow you to restore the calendar directly from the iPhone, you need to turn to third party iOS data recovery software for help. iFonebox is such kind of iPhone data recovery software and recovers not only calendar but also contacts, notes, messages, wechat messages, whatsapp messages, reminders, photos and voice memos etc from iPhone selectively.
As long as you have your iPhone at hand, and the iPhone is accessible, you can download and install iFonebox to have a try. You are suggested to recover the lost calendar from your iPhone right after the calendar loss. You’d better stop using your iPhone again.
Here are the detailed steps to recover the manually added calendar events directly from your iPhone 5.
1. Install and run the full version of iFonebox. Connect your iPhone to your computer and click the button of “Start” after the iPhone is showed on the startup interface. In this way, you have chosen the recovery mode of “Recover from iDevice”.
2. Choose calendar to scan selectively by clicking on the relevant icon from the interface listing all the supported data category. Then iFonebox will start scanning.
3.The data scanning and analyzing will take quite a while depending on the data size. After the scanning completes, take a preview at all the exported items and select what you need to recover to your computer.
