Detailed Review PhoneRescue


This PhoneRescue software developed by iMobie (Certified Developer for Apple products).  PhoneRescue was developed to help people from rescuing lost or deleted data from the phone. PhoneRescue can be used directly via scanning an Android or iOS device for recovering deleted files, restoring lost files, extracting iCloud backups and iTunes, and repairing other issues related to iOS devices.

1.  Malware free

I have personally tested this software on my Mac and iPhone and found that this software is 100% free of malware. It also does not contain any type of bundled third-party programs.

2.  Safe to use

PhoneRescue is completely safe and easy to use. The scanning procedure is based on a read-only process that does not affect existing data in the device or system. It seeks permission before accessing data from the phone before recovering the files. This proves that it is safe to use and your existing data is completely safe with PhoneRescue from iMobie.

3. Payment

PhoneRescue as of now comes with two versions:

●  Trial Version

The trial version is completely free. It allows users to scan and preview the data they want to recover or retrieve. However, during the trial version users cannot export or save the files. To do so, you may need to get the full version.

●  Full Version

Once the trial version expires, you will have to update your software to the paid version wherein you will get access to export and save files. The paid version is activated by a software license.

As of now, there are two types of licenses available for buying PhoneRescue:

●  Personal License

Costs $59.99 (compatible for single device usage)

●  Family License

Costs $79.99 9 (based on the numbers of devices you’re using the product)

Talking about iPhone or Android users, PhoneRescue is not available in the form of a mobile app. To use it, you will have to connect the device to your computer.

Pros and Cons of PhoneRescue


Four repair modes almost maximized the chances of data retrieving.

This software works without a device connection which is effective for those whose phone is damaged, lost, or faulty.

This software helps with the direct export of certain forms of files back to the device and it also keeps a copy in the system.

The recovered files’ qualities are best and high.


It sometimes detects more files than deleted.

You can recover deleted files from iCloud mode but it does not offer much value to the retrieved files.

Costly for personal usage.

How Does PhoneRescue by iMobie Work on devices?

I have personally tested the software on my Mac and iOS device. After researching and using the software, I found that the interface is almost the same for both versions (Mac and Windows). Therefore, it would have been better if they looked a little different from each other so that users can differentiate between the two.

To begin the detailed review of the features, when I downloaded and installed the software, it was quite easy to use and understand. Furthermore, once you’ve launched the software on your PC, it will provide you a quick animated PhoneRescue circled icon which was quite attractive. Later, it directed me to the “Quick Tips” section for better usability and retrieval of the lost or deleted data. The quick tips screen was all about tips regarding recovering the data effectively. Once you have read it all, you can click on the “I’m Ready to Start” button for running the app.

After this, the software will show you a screen with four main recovery modes:

1. Recover from iOS Device

2. Recover from iTunes Backup

3. Recover from iCloud

4. iOS Repair Tools

Each section of recovery data comes with a specific type of recovering data situation.

1. Recover from iOS device

This mode is compatible with recovering deleted or lost data from your iPhone device that includes videos, pictures, messages, notes, etc. all you have to do is to recognize your device with your computer. You can simply connect your device with a PC and continue to recover the lost files.

This mode is mostly liked by people because iPhone does not keep backups until and unless you have stored your content in iCloud. Most people do not do that. It helps us to retrieve the missing data. Overall, the process takes less than a minute.

Suggestion: Do not unplug the device until and unless the whole process is completed by the software.

2.  Recover from iTunes Backup

iTunes Backup

This mode is also compatible with your iPhone and works well if your device does not work properly. It works best when you wish to restore all data from your device to your computer.

All you have to do is to select this mode and retrieve all the data within few minutes. Results show that it is effective for recovering backup through iTunes for your device.

3. Recover from iCloud

Recover from iCloud

This mode works best if you have already created a backup of your device’s data via iCloud. If you have enabled synchronization through iCloud, this will also work in this mode.

Also, this mode only works iOS 8.4 or earlier versions because of Apple’s security limitations on Mac. After hitting the button, the software will ask you to sign in to your iCloud account. iMobie claimed that they never use such information for other content or malicious activity as most people are concerned about sharing their passwords with third-party apps. Once you have logged in, the software will create a new backup in your system.

4. iOS Repair Tools

iOS Repair Tools

This is the last mode of PhoneRescue. It usually works on faulty iOS devices. This recovery mode is compatible with devices that are stuck with a black screen or Apple logo or do not restart at all. This recovery mode is so smart that it detects if the device needs to be repaired or not. If your device is working fine, it will not work further. If the device is faulty, it will help in recovering the data from the device.
