Iphone / iPad / iPod - iOS devices:
What is possible 4 R3 2 recover?
1. All data that is live on the phone (not deleted)
2. Deleted text-based data (including but by no means limited to):
· Chats -WhatsApp, Kik, Skype, Viber
· Call logs
· Web History
· Web Bookmarks
· Facebook Messages
· Linkedin Messages
· Call Logs
· Calendar Entries
· Most applications are already supported for extraction. We have the capability to develop custom scripts or bespoke programming for unsupported apps.
R3 mobile electronics experts are able to recover from most working, physically damaged, water-damaged or otherwise non-working devices. In cases where the damage is too severe to recover from the handset we can recover live and deleted data from iTunes & iCloud backups.
PIN Lock Bypass
· We are able to bypass PIN locks on Apple devices, dependant on the iOS version.
· If the iOS version is unknown, we are able to determine it from the IMEI number which is printed on the rear of the device.
· We are able to circumvent the 'wipe handset after 10 unsuccessful PIN attempts' feature
What is not possible to recover?
It is not possible to recover deleted media (photographs, videos and audio) from iPhone 4s or newer. (We can recover these from the iPhone 3GS, and 4, although these are rarely seen these days).
In which cases is it not possible to recover data from the device?
We cannot recover from Apple devices with extensive motherboard / component damage. We are often able to perform component level repairs (as in the case of water-damaged or seemingly 'dead' iPhones etc) but obviously if the damage is too severe we can’t help, since it’s not possible to perform a chip-off examination due to Apple’s hardware encryption. An upfront assessment and donor parts charge may be required for sever damage or situations where previous recovery attempts have been unsuccessful.

When my external backup drive failed I feared many years of documents were lost. Not only were the files recovered but presented back in their original folders so they could be easily reviewed and restored to my system. Sensitive documents were dealt with confidentially. Excellent timely service.
