Sometimes however, things do not work out the way they should and you are faced with an unusable piece of expensive hardware or lost your precious data.

iMyFone D-Back iMyfone D-Back Mac review 1

  • Quickly recover data directly from iOS device, iTunes/ iCloud Backup, or via smart recovery mode.
  • Selectively recover WhatsApp, Viber, WeChat, Kik, Line, photos, videos, messages, contacts, notes, and 18+ other data types.
  • Recover iOS data instantly with only 3 steps.
  • Fix iOS system issues or iOS update errors before iPhone data recovery.



The UI of iMyFone D-Back looks clean and minimalistic modern. So, anybody should be able to use this software without any difficulties as it is directing the user exactly to any necessary step(s) to follow. Being a new application the developer should have added the ‘dark mode’ option in their new software application. It could keep Apple addicts from buying this great piece of software just because it lacks ‘dark mode’.

You can scan for recently deleted files as well as the data from a long time ago. Even if you have done a factory reset, D-Back still can detect the deleted data so that you can easily recover them.

 When it comes down to speed, don’t worry anymore. Its fast with scanning and restoring times, so D-Back will not disappoint you.

 D-Back provides a preview for selected specific data you wish to restore. It is a great and useful feature of D-Back.

 iMyFone D-Back supports restoring Photos, Videos, Music ,iMessages, Whatsapp, Viber, WeChat and iPhone data like messages, call history, safari history, photos, music, videos, voice records, notes, calendars, reminders, etc.


So we’ve tried and successfully restored lost data from our iPhone ( or IOS operated system, iPad etc ). Now this is not all what iMyFone’s D-Back offers any buyer as apart from data recovery it will also repair your stuck iPhone and fix the numerous IOS-problems you may face using any IOS machine.

  • iPhone stuck at Apple logo during startup,
  • freezing screen problem,
  • restarting loop,
  • iTunes errors,
  • black screen or white screen



If you forgot your passcode or unable to use face ID or Touch ID, you still have the chance getting access to your device by using this software. iMyFone D-Back has a dedicated option for it. This function will completely erase your iPhone and only then you can attempt to recover the deleted data. Though D-Back has an excellent reputation, you still have no guarantee that it will recover all the deleted data or not. No doubts about this versatile software as it has so many excellent features. Then again, these amazing features and functionalities should work correctly or all will fail.



The iMyFone D-Back has performed really well in my test. After installing this software, you are required to install the latest iTunes (not Windows store version),as this is a requirement. Only after connecting your iPhone via a lightning cable, you can open this iPhone data recovery software. You will see a few recovery options like Smart Recovery, Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes backup, Recover from iCloud, Fix iOS System, etc. You can choose whatever you want. But, I would suggest smart recovery. Because It helps you to recover your deleted data in the easiest way.

After clicking on Smart Recovery, you will see some other options to choose how you have lost your data. For example: Lost or Deleted by Accident, Factory Reset, Jailbreak or iOS upgrade, iPhone Lost, Damaged or Broken, Forgotten Passcode, a few more options. You can choose any of these options according to your situation. Now, you will get an option to choose which data type you want to recover. At my first try, I choose ‘Lost and Deleted data by accident’ and then selected all available data types. Software now started scanning my iPhone and presented a full overview of all found files/data which could be recovered just by marking the checkbox.



Scanning speed was truly very good. Next, after a successful scan completed the result is shown. Finally I finished recovering some lost data. The recovery speed was very fast and I was surprised to see that it had detected everything I deleted from my iPhone. Probably everything as I didn’t have time to count all files.

Users can either recover everything at once or just preview and restore specific data or an entire data type. I tried to check every detail as much as possible and found the WhatsApp data recovery truly awesome. Besides recovering deleted messages, It also had found the attachments which were some photos that I sent someone a long ago.

Beside the data recovery options, iMyFone D-Back is able to repair a few common iOS errors. Most iPhone/iPad/iPod users are familiar with these errors. This ‘repair feature’ is a very useful addition and bonus indeed. You are able to repair problems like the iPhone stuck at apple logo, white/black screen issue, freezing problem, etc. Else, D-Back also helps to reset your phone if you forgot the passcode or Touch or Face ID is not working. Next steps allow you to recover data. Technically, it allows you to access your data even if you forgot the passcode.

So, the overall performance of iMyFone D-Back is great. In my test, all of the core functions worked correct. The main purpose of this software is to recover deleted or lost data from iPhone/iPad/iPod. In this case, It just does its part very smoothly. Always use the Repair tool first and use the restore/recover functions afterwards. ” And MOST important remark when using computer/phone related equipment…. MAKE REGULAR BACKUPS !!!…… most don’t and get stuck in case of trouble “



This review is easy as iMyFone software proofs again and again how well it is designed and functioning. iMyFone D-Back is just another ‘hit’ for them, as this application brings you best of both worlds being, a ‘data recover ‘utility and a ‘ IOS repair’ utility combined in a great toolbox. Apart from missing out on a ‘dark mode’ option, there are no flaws found. It’s accurate, it’s fast and easy to use. Just all good things at hand to make your life a little easier when things go wrong. Pricing is fair and a lifetime subscription sounds better than just one year. Again iMyFone has a great tool in store for us. We got positive results using D-Back, we do however read misfortunes of users not being able to restore. So keep in mind nothing is perfect in life.

In the end we end up with a huge library file containing many duplicate photo’s making your library cluttered and contain duplicate picture folders. Scanning my own Photo-Library containing 20.000 pictures came up with 1000 duplicate picture-files.

PhotoSweeper uses picture search preference-settings to find the real duplicate or changed pictures.( Top-slides )



The interface is simple and provides all needed information. Marking photo’s for deletion is easy and can be done manually and automatic. Scanning is fast ! Scanning 20.000 pictures and compare them to another folder only took a few minutes.

PhoneRescue presents all possible recovery methods, known by the editor. The user is presented with an overview and guidelines regarding your phones problem. Just read all given failure descriptions and pick your recovery option. Without the guidelines you would be unable to make the right choices. So, big plus for the program layout and clear statements.

If your phone can’t connect to PhotoRescue the hardware of your phone will be too damaged in some way. So best way is to try out and download the free version and see if the phone will make connection with PhoneRescue.

The recover options from an existing backup wether its a iTunes, iCloud or the device itself are common and work without any problems. The IOS Repair Tools however are most interesting to me
as they do the most diffycult task of all.



This scenario wants you to connect your phone to your computer and follow the steps presented. It is best if you first read and
understand the procedure to follow. This procedure works well, and restores your phone to a factory default state. So all your info will be lost, but you endup with a working phone again.

PhoneRescue is the swiss army knife for repairing your phone or recovering of your lost data. It looks great with a clean interface and does what it claims to do. I am particularly impressed with the detailed problem descriptions and  ‘ How To ‘, repairing or recovering your device. It makes it usable for all users, which is a big plus.
If you’re desperate and almost want to give up on your phone, get this tool to sort things out for you. Mind you, do use the try-out version first in order to see if your phone will connect anyway.
