iPhone Data Recovery
Our iPhone data recovery service is specifically designed for phones which are too costly to repair or are too severely damaged. These are normally phones that has been dropped, are water damaged or have been damaged during a repair attempt.
Many repair services found on the local high streets avoid these jobs, they’re complicated, time consuming and not profitable. We work on a data first basis, recovering your data is our priority and not repairing the phone. We take on recovery work that others wont, working at the logic board level microsoldering components, traces and chips to repair just enough damage to gain access to your data.

Date Recovery Limitation
Phones which have had the NAND, CPU or eeprom chips damaged in any way, either physically or by heat can not be recovered. All 3 chips are serialised, they are unique and are needed to decrypt your data.
We can not recover data from locked or disabled iPhones.
There are no options or services available to recover data which has been deleted from a modern iPhone. Software packages claiming to be able to do this are obtaining the data such as low resolution thumbnails from other sources, or recovering them from your iCloud or iTunes backup files.
We must have a working passcode for the device, this is not optional. If you do not feel able to provide this code we can not help you. We can not crack, break or hack the security on iPhones, please do not ask us to. Please check to the best of your ability you have the correct code before sending the device in for recovery. Recoveries which we have a path to data but have the wrong passcode will be charged for.
Frequently Asked Questions
On average our standard service takes between 1 to 2 weeks from when we receive your phone. More complex recoveries or recoveries which require donor parts or custom solutions may take a lot longer, but less complex recoveries are completed the same day. Your recovery time will be dependent on the condition of your iPhone
There is no limit to the data we can recover but it may be more cost effective to supply it on recoveries over 64GB on alternative media such as a n external USB hard drive which would need to be added to the recovery cost.
We aim to return your data in the form of an iTunes backup so that you are able to restore it to a new phone. We may also include parsed data where we have extracted image and video files directly. These will will be returned on either a USB pen drive or an external USB hard drive which you can plug into your computer.
Due to the nature of our service phones are rarely returned in a working condition. If the repair was less complex and it is possible to return the phone as a usable device it will be, but it is more likely after recovery the phone will be just a collection of chips which we can securely recycle for you.
We consider your data your personal property. We have detailed our view on data privacy on our Recovery Privacy page, and treat your phone data in the same manner. Your phone data is confidential and we process it as such.
