How To: Recover Data from iCloud Synced/Backup File

Many iPhone users People ask: “How do you restore data files from an iCloud backup?” “Can Data be recovered from iCloud?” “How do I restore synced files from iCloud?” “Can I restore individual files from iCloud backup?”, and so on. Apple provides no interface to pull individual items from the backup. Whether through iTunes or iCloud, backups are intended to be restored as a whole, replacing the content on the device at the time of the restore.

If you ask someone at your local Apple store, the answer will be “no”. For security, Apple never tells you where your iCloud backup file is. Selective recovery of iCloud backups is not possible if you use the official recovery process – all or nothing. If you wish to selectively restore your iCloud backup/synced files to your iPhone or computer, if you need to access and view iCloud backup files, you should try a third-party tool or search for the path where your iCloud backup file is. However, even though you find your iCloud backup files, generally, you can’t view the data in iCloud backup files in detail. It’s a package with all data mixed together, displaying as code. Luckily, Dr.Fone for iOS Data Recovery will allow you to see all iCloud synced files.
