“Can anyone tell me how to restore iPhone from iCloud Without Resetting it? I just want to extract some data from my iCloud backup file.”
Back in the day, losing all your data on your iPhone was a disaster. You would either have to collect it all again from a million different sources, assuming it was even available, or have had a physical backup somewhere at your house. And, unless you were in business, chances of the latter being the case were very slim.
Nowadays, with iCloud, losing data is not as daunting an experience as it used to be. iCloud lets you back up and restore all your data with just a few button presses. And all that over the internet, that is, without having to move from your couch at all.
However, iCloud is not a panacea, as it can often fail to recover data on your iPhone, or even if it can, it has one major limitation. Using it means that you will also have to reset your phone.
But, worry not. In this article, we will show you how to restore your iPhone/iPad from iCloud Backup without resetting it.
