Tutorial: How to Recover Data from Broken iPhone

Step 1. Install and launch the program
Before doing anything else, run the program on your computer. Then connect your iPhone to the computer. Here, let's try the Windows version. When your iPhone 5/4S is detected, you'll get the interface as follow.

If yours is iPhone 4/3GS, you'll see the window below after it's detected. In this case, you need to download a plug-in according to your device's mode. It's really simple. You can finish it in a few minutes by clicking the "Download" button.

Step 2. Scan your broken iPhone for data
In the interface above, there are three steps displayed telling you how to enter the iPhone 4/3GS' scanning mode. Follow it and do it with your iPhone. What you need to pay attention to is immediately holding the Power and Home buttons at the same time after you clicking "Start". Then waiting for 10 seconds (the program will count it for you), you can release the Power button but keep holding the Home button. Then you'll get into the system successfully, and the program will automatically scan the data on your iPhone.
If you use iPhone 5/4S, you don't need to do these steps. Directly click the "Start Scan" button and the program will scan your iPhone for data on it.

Step 3. Preview and recover data directly from your broken iPhone 5/4S/4/3GS
In fact, you can begin to preview found data during the scan. All files are categorized as Camera Roll, Photo Stream, Contacts, Messages, Call History, and more. You can selectively recover them all with one click by pressing the "Recover" button at the bottom if you have such a need.

Note: The data found here includes what you have on your iPhone now and those you deleted before. You can turn on the button on the top to "Only display the deleted items". Additionally, if you want to import recovered contacts back to your iPhone, you can use Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS to do it in a few clicks.
This software is your capable assistant. If you can make full use of it, you won’t be bothered by iPhone data loss any more. And one thing you need to know: iPhone Data Recovery (Mac) or iPhone Data Recovery (Windows) are also fully compatible with iPad and iPod.
