1. Select the iCloud backup
Download and install the official version of iPhone Backup Extractor from our site. A Personal license is required for iCloud support.
If you want to recover files from more than two devices you need a Family or a Business plan.
Click on the “+” button and add an iCloud account. User credentials are never stored, and the connection is secure and encrypted.
2. Download the iCloud backup
Selected a device, then a backup, and download it locally.
Unplug your device from a power source and disconnect it from WiFi to prevent it from overwriting backup files.
If you have an iPhone with a larger internal storage than the iCloud storage, iPhone Backup Extractor will download and recover only what's been synced with a current or older iCloud backup.
3. Preview and extract
Once the backup has been downloaded go to “Overview” and check out which data categories are available. Use “Preview” mode for anything you’d like to preview first, such as messages, photos or Notes.
Use the “Expert mode” to recover individual files, databases, and to edit backup files - most useful in forensics. Use the “App view” mode to recover files from installed apps.
Selected files are recovered and saved on your computer.
