How to protect your iPhone 6S Plus / 6S / 6 / 6 Plus / 5S /5C /5 data from being damaged by accidental deletion, system crash or other unexpected disasters of your iPhone? I think iTunes backup can be your best choice. iTunes enables you to back up your iPhone data and generate a backup file in your local driver, which can let you recover the data safely if something terrible happened. On Mac OS X, iTunes will save all its backup files under the path of “Home folder/Library/Application Support/MobileSync/Backup/” by default. You can find all the iTunes backup files there. However, when you try to open an iTunes backup directly, you fail because iTunes won't let you open a backup file by yourself.
Sometimes an iTunes backup file may contain lot of things. However, many of them may have been out-of-date for a long time and we don't have a necessity to recover them anymore. Sometimes to accelerate the recovery process, some kinds of data such as the music files, movies downloaded from the Internet and etc. also have no need to be recovered. On these conditions, we may want to recover our iPhone data selectively. However, since we cannot open an iTunes backup file and see the details of it, how to recover our iPhone data selectively can be a problem.
The problem can be solved actually with a simple third party iPhone 6S Plus data recovery tool – Aiseesoft FoneLab. This professional iPhone data recovery tool can not only help you recover the lost data with iTunes backups, but also let you extract the backup file and view the content of it before the recovery.
