We're hugely excited about the upcoming iOS 12 and macOS Mojave. Today's update includes a extra features for both of these, on top of the support we already released. See you at the Apple event later today! 👋
We're back, for our first update of iPhone Backup Extractor this July. There's been plenty going on, and whilst iOS 12 support isn't new in this build, we wrote about the work we did over the last couple of weeks for Apple's iCloud changes. Yes, we fully support it all. We met Prince Charles the week before, recognising our work driving innovation in the UK, and talked about GDPR with him. How often can you write that in a change-log? I mean, really. 🤷♀️
Today's release brings our second big new feature of June: detailed Apple and mobile device data for any iOS backup or device, built in to iPhone Backup Extractor. The data we show goes way beyond the information encoded on the device and in a backup. We've had to build out an entire API with gigabytes of supporting data to be able to do this in a secure and reliable way, and we're making that freely available from today. We've written in more detail on our blog about this release, the data you're now able to access, and the API. In other news, we're off to Buckingham Palace again later today. It's a busy day.
We've been busy here at Reincubate HQ over the last couple of weeks. We're recruiting, preparing to jet off to the US for meetings, and, well... shipping software. ✈️ On that note, here's our latest release of iPhone Backup Extractor. We think this one's pretty neat.
We treated our Mac users earlier with the first release of our updated left-hand navigation. Today we're releasing the first iteration of this for Windows users, and sweeping up a few minor issues in the Mac release. There's more to come, and we'd love to read your feedback. ✍️ We'll be writing a little more in future as we continue to improve the navigation.
It's May, and it's time for a release. We've hinted at some of the changes in our plan, and the first preview of our new left-hand navigation systems is now out for macOS users. There are changes for Windows users, too, and more to come. Don't be shy: tell us what you think and how you get on with it! 🤞
We said it was coming, and here it is. On the heels of our last build we're releasing a number of fixes which help with corrupted backups and WhatsApp attachments. Also, London was 28℃ in April. 🌞 Can you believe that?
We've been celebrating our second Queen's Award, and working on a bunch of behind-the-scenes changes to iPhone Backup Extractor. This release is built from our enhanced code-base, but is otherwise similar to 184.108.40.2069. Back to regular releases shortly, and we'll ship an update build in the coming days. 👑
We're thrilled to be releasing iPhone Backup Extractor 7.6 today. It introduces a milestone new feature: previews of iCloud data. Rather than needing to download data in order to view it within the app, you can now preview a variety of data before choosing whether to download it. Happy days! ☀️ Let us know how you get on with it.
We're thrilled to release this update of iPhone Backup Extractor, headlining with support for previews of recordings in iPhone backups. To mark this, we've codenamed the release 1998: the year Britney Spears shot to fame. We've mixed feelings about that. 👩🎤
This Tuesday brings our next release, which is all about improving user experiences. We’ve made improvements to iCloud interaction, to iPhone 8 and X support, and to memory handling. This afternoon the team are off to Mansion House to meet the Lord Mayor of London on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, as part of Reincubate winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
We’re back to our usual combined Windows and macOS updates, and today’s is a good ‘un. Sometimes we need to say goodbye to the past, and this release officially drops support for macOS 10.7. It’s to old for us to readily support with our pace of changes. 1771 — as we like to call this new release — includes the following:
This last week team RI were off for a picnic in the park, and we shipped 220.127.116.111 with a whole list of speed and reliability enhancements. You'll see the next few builds going to make the application more robust than ever.
Feature: Added Apple WatchOS 3 support. The first time anyone has had WatchOS support.
Feature: We added a sample data iCloud account for John Appleseed. We added this for users of Free and Basic plans so they could get a taste of the full iPhone Backup Extractor experience. You can follow the story of John and Jane from young lovers to married couple. See their photos, watch their videos, read about Tommy the wonder dog; what happened at the vet? However, if you don't want to see this data then you will be able to switch it off via the help menu or the iCloud accounts window.
Fix: For years now a mystery deleted note has haunted the Notes recovery process. Today we exorcised it. In the past you would see the note from 01/01/2001 whenever your recovered notes from any backup. It has finally been laid to rest, and you will only recover your own, familiar notes from now on.
Improvement: We changed the Mac installer to a gorgeous one that even looks good on retina. We don't want to oversell it but it's prettier than the Mona Lisa.
Fix: Fixed an issue with the reloading of iCloud backups. If you downloaded one data category then that would be the only data you would see; even after downloading more. Now you will see all of your downloaded data.
Fix: The iPhone Backup Extractor is now notifying users to upgrade to 18.104.22.1683, because we care and 22.214.171.1243 is the cat's pajamas.
Feature: Added support for WatchOS 2. Whoop, whoop!
Improvement: Added a recommendation about encrypting your backup. This is just a friendly message to encourage users to think about their data security. Our iOS experts love to talk about data security.
Improvement: Viber changed their database locations which meant that iCloud messages were not being recovered for the latest Viber version. You can now recover Viber messages after we coxed the database out with cookies and chocolate.
Improvement: Made improvements to the update mechanism which will push all users to the latest iPhone Backup Extractor. Because we ❤️ all our users, and we want you to enjoy the best of what the software can offer. 🎈
Feature: We are happy to ship the first iCloud recovery software that can help you recover Tinder messages. You will find it in the Preview window along with Photos, Messages, WhatsApp, Viber and others. If you accidentally delete a message, or worse yet, the entire app. You can simply click on the Tinder icon to review any messages in your backup. We will continue to look for ways to improve Tinder recovery but this is our Valentine's gift for all of the lovers out there. For more details please read this week’s Tinder themed blog.
Feature: We have added iCloud Photo Library which makes the iPhone Backup Extractor the most complete iCloud recovery software on the market. Now you will be able to download all of your photos and videos from all Photo Library albums (including shared albums). When you login to your iCloud account you will see the all new Photo Library option beneath Photostream (left side pane). To make things easier the entire process is the same as Photostream. Simply click the Download button to recover your entire Photo Library.
Improvement: For Windows users we have also updated the folder browsers to make them more modern. Although this is only a cosmetic change; it is more inline with the look and feel of the software.
Fix: Especially good news for Windows 8 users with a bug fix that was crashing or hanging the app. Not any more we squashed the bug and you can now return to seamless data extraction.
Fix: We also fixed the Windows bug which was stopping you from closing the software via the File menu. Older versions would freeze when you used this method to close the app. We’re all tired of freezing this winter, so the fix is in and let spring begin.
