How to Recover Data from iPhone 5 without Backup?

If you are using iPhone 5 or any other iPhone model, you may have the need to recover data from iPhone 5 without backup. Why would I say that? From the analysis of our recent research based on 500 respondents, we can see that 78% iPhone users have come across data loss, contacts, photos or WhatsApp data. However, it is surprising to find that only 34% out of the 500 users had backup when they needed to restore their iDevices. Most of the users maybe you included, don't have the habit of backing up data regularly, or lack the awareness of the importance of making backup.


Your iPhone houses such a large number of data: apps, contacts, text messages, WhatsApp, iMessages, photos, videos, music files, notes, calendars and so on. You store data on the iPhone and you should be well awared that you might have the risk of losing them somehow in a way you know or unknown. Data loss happens and it might be caused by a lot of reasons, including but limited to mistaken deletion, iOS update failure, jailbreak failure, device damage/lost/stolen, malware attack, and virus infection. And among those reasons, mistaken deletion accounts for the biggest factor of iPhone data loss, with a high percentage of 63.


Some people would think that it does not matter what reason results in losing data, which is absolutely not right. This is because knowing how your data disappears sometimes helps avoid trouble. For example, your data such as contacts might just be hidden by settings but they will show up when you select "Show All" option. If you don't try this before you perform the lost iPhone data recovery, you just trouble the trouble.


Now let's get back to today's main topic - how to recover data from iPhone 5 without backup. Personally speaking, I would hope you had a latest backup of your iPhone and data because this saves you from the trouble of re-planning your budget.
