iCloud allows users to store data such as music, contacts, and iOS applications and wireless back up their iOS devices instead of manually using iTunes. If you have backup your data with iCloud, when you lose data, you can recover them through iCloud. But iCloud can only restore all data, that is to say, it can't selectively restore parts of data, so in the first place, you should erase all the contents on your iPhone. Don't worry. If you have a recovery tool, things are different.

What you need is iPhone Data Recovery or iPhone Data Recovery (Mac), a professional assistant that pioneers a new path for users to recover any lost data. It also allows you to preview contents one by one.
