For the sake of convenience, some iPhone users may like to take notes by using the app on their devices. That's quite convenient we have to admit. However, when suffering from a system crash or wrong deletion, the important notes will be erased, which sometimes could turn out to be a disaster. If you are stuck in this situation, there is a piece of good news for you that you can recover your lost iPhone notes back.

- Recover from iCloud Backup File: What if you failed to get lost data back from iOS device, or hadn't backed up with iTunes? No worry, the third mode is here to help. As long as you have backed up files to your iCloud account, this tool can recover your lost data from the backup file.
