Reincubate and iPhone Backup Extractor were born of a passion for helping people access and recover their data, built from the founder’s own need to recover his data. From the very start, we’ve been humbled and inspired by the response to our software.
So many users have shared emotional stories to keep us going, or offered feedback on how we can improve, just as many reporters and sponsors have covered or otherwise helped us. And that’s not to mention the kindness of Apple and Google along the way. Thank you. 🙏
Through the feedback of millions of our users, Reincubate is rated one of the UK’s top 10 most loved software companies by TrustPilot.
We publish iPhone Backup Extractor, a handy utility which helps users to recover their data from the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch backups that iTunes automatically creates. Our software can rescue photographs, address books, call histories, text messages, voicemail, videos and all sorts of other interesting data. It's used by a wide range of people -- from stay-home parents to national crime and forensics centres around the world -- and is available in both free and registered versions.
The software was launched in mid-2008 when it was released as a simple script and it was the first tool available for users to recover their data. Since then the complexity of Apple's backup formats has grown steadily, and we've continued to make the software easier and easier to use. iPhone Backup Extractor runs on Windows and macOS, will work with any version of iTunes and any iPhone, iPad or iPod, and can extract data in powerful and flexible formats.
The software has proved particularly useful for users recently where they've been struggling with painful iOS upgrades or downgrades.
