Recover iPhone Call History, Extract iPhone Call History

"Can I recover deleted call history/call log on iPhone?" Of course, with the help of iTunes, you are able to restore your iPhone with the backup, and get the deleted files back to iPhone. When the restoring process is finished, you will get their deleted call history back to your iPhone. As is known, iTunes will ask users to erase all content and settings before restoring iPhone with the backup, so people may lose newly added data on their iPhone if users haven’t backed the data up. 

You can also use iCloud to restore iPhone call history/call log with an iCloud backup. After people enabled iCloud on your iPhone, the iPhone data will be uploaded to the cloud when the device is plugged in with the screen locked, and connected to Wi-Fi. Then your will be able to restore their iPhone with the backup when you want to recover deleted call history from iPhone. After the restoring process, the deleted files will be recovered. Like using iTunes to restore iPhone backup, iCloud will also need users to erase all content and settings before restoring the device. 

However, If you don't want to mess up all data with iTunes or iCloud, is there any way for the users to recover deleted notes from iPhone, include iPhone SE, iPhone 6S/6 (plus), iPhone 5S/5C/5/4S/4/3GS even all iPads and iPod Touch? In fact, you are able to take advantage of the third-party iPhone data recovery programs to finish the task. Hivimoore Dr.Fone for iOS (Review) is used for recovering deleted Call History, Call Log from iPhone/iPad/iPod devices, extracting data from iTunes and iCloud backups.

3 Ways to Recover Deleted All Call History from iPhone 

Method 1. Directly Recover Call History from iPhone 

Step 1. Connect your iPhone and scan it 

In this way, you need to have your iPhone at hand and get it connected to the computer at first. Then run the program and stay at the recovery mode of "Recover from iOS Devices". When you see the window shown on the right side, you can directly click on the "Start Scan" button to begin scanning your iPhone for lost call history. 

Step 2. Preview and recover deleted call history from iPhone 

Once the program finishes scanning your iPhone, it'll present you a scan result showing all recoverable data on your iPhone, not only call logs, but also contacts, messages, photos, videos and so on. But you have the option to preview and decide which items you want to recover. Then tick them and click on the "Recover" button to save them all on your computer with one click. 

Method 2. Recover iPhone call history from iTunes backup 

All or nothing, that's what iTunes backup lets us do. You only have the chance to restore everything in the iTunes backup file to your iPhone, or you restore nothing. There is no selectively restoring. What if we want to selectively restore some specific data from the backup? The method below is going to be pretty useful. 

Step 1. Choose and extract iTunes backup file 

You don't need to connect your iPhone to the computer when you choose this way, and don't do it, for the iTunes backup can be easily updated if you've enabled the automatic synchronization. 

Simply launch the program on your computer and choose the mode of "Recover from iTunes Backup Files". Then you'll see that all backup files generated by iTunes on your computer are presented in a list by the program automatically. All you need to do is select the one for your iPhone or the one you want to extract, and click on the "Start Scan" button to get it extracted.. 

Step 2. Preview and recover iPhone call log from iTunes backup 

The program can get the backup extracted in a few seconds. Once it's done, you can preview all contents in the backup in details. Choose the "Call History" menu on the left side. You can read your phone call history one by one. Tick the item you want to keep and save it to your computer by clicking on the "Recover" button. 

Method 3. Restore iPhone call history from iCloud backup 

Just the same as iTunes, iCloud also doesn't allow you to preview or selective restore specific data from its backup. All you need to do is using a third-party tool that can help you extract the backup for selective recovery and restore. There is also such a way. 

Step 1. Run the program and sign in your iCloud 

Choose to use this way, you need to know your iCloud account, that's to say the Apple ID and the password, so that you can get the online iCloud backup down. 

After running the program, switch to the mode of "Recover from iCloud Backup Files". Then you can directly sign in your iCloud account by putting in the Apple ID and the password. It's totally safe here. Wondershare won't keep or leak any information of your account and data. 

Step 2. Download and scan the iCloud backup 

When you've got in, the program can detect all backup files existing in your iCloud account. You can choose the one for your iPhone and click on the "Download" button to get it down to your computer. The downloading process will take you a few minutes. Get yourself a cup of coffee and wait for a moment. 

Note: The downloaded file is only located on your computer. There is no record in the program or any other place. 

Step 3. Preview and recover call log for your iPhone 

After the downloading, there will be a scan button appearing. Click it to move on. When the scan is over, you can preview the content of the backup file in detail. Choose the "Call History", and you can read all items one by one. Tick the item you want to recover and save it on your computer. 

Additional Tips: How Can I Extract iPhone call history? 

To extract your deleted call logs from your iPhone, you need to extract the SQLite file first, and to extract SQLite file, you need an iPhone data extractor. If you're still not clear about it, my recommendation still isDr.Fone for iOS for Windows or Mac, a reliable and intuitive program that enables you to extract the call log from iPhone, including iPhone incoming call log, outgoing call log and missed call log. You can extract them all to a HTML file on your computer, so you can read and print them easily.

Here all backup files for your iOS devices will be listed out. Choose the one for your iPhone and click "Start Scan" to move on.

You're at the last step now. Choose "Call History" among the items on the left after the scan, and you can preview all incoming, outgoing and missed calls on your iPhone. Mark them and hit on the "Recover" button to save them all on your computer with one click.

Free Ways to Import Canon XF MXF footage to FCP X/7 on Mac (El Capitan & Yosemite included)

As we all know, for the compatibility issue, many MXF Camcorder users have the experiences with Plug-in or MXF converter. From googling, we found many users often met some problems if they tried importing Canon XF MXF clips to Final Cut Pro X, and they wanted to get a way to help them to solve the troubles. In the post I will share free or paid tools to import Canon XF MXF recordings to FCP X for further editing on Mac OS X.

Question 1: Canon XF305 into Final Cut Pro X
"I am working on a project shot on the Canon XF305 and want to import into Final Cut Pro X and I know that the Canon MXF Codec isn't supported in FCP X so what is best way to import the footage without losing quality of the HD 1080 25p footage?"
Question 2: How do I convert .mxf files from Canon XF300 so that I can edit them in Final Cut Pro 7?
"I am editing my wedding footage and have been given a small amount of footage in .mxf files from the xf300 camera and I was wondering how to get them into Final Cut Pro 7 so that I can edit them with the rest of the footage. Log and Transfer doesn't work like usual .mxf footage as when I try to add the files it says ""xf300_ceremony" contains unsupported media or has an invalid directory structure. Please choose a folder whose directory structure matches supported media." I tried to download the plug-in for xf300 but that doesn't seem to make any difference. What can I do to get theses files in?"

Learn more symptoms in importing Canon XF MXF to FCP (X):
  • When I try to import my MXF footages to Final Cut Pro X by the File/Import/Media... screen, FCP X tells me:"No Importable Files" or "None of the selected files or folders can be imported."
  • Though I have installed the Canon XF Plugin from canon web site, I still can't import MXF files shot on canon C300 into Final Cut Pro X.
  • My FCP no longer import MXF files since I updated to Mavericks. I installed the Canon driver as well - but the selections are still grayed out when I try to import .mxf footages
  • When I get to the 'Log and Transfer' stage, I still run into the same problem, where FCP7 won't let me import the MXF movie files and says it's an unrecognizable format.

The XF305 and XF300 camcorders mark both Canon's switch to using flash memory as a recording format in its new professional camcorder range and a new level of recording quality for High Definition camcorders. The most significant difference between the XF models and their current competitors is the use of Canon's MPEG-2 codec with a data rate of 50Mbps and 4:2:2 colour sampling. 

MPEG-2 is widely accepted for recording video in currently used formats, such as HDV and Blu-ray discs, but compared to HDV, for example, this version of MPEG-2 offers twice the vertical colour resolution and twice the data bandwidth. The video files from the XF305 and XF300 camcorders are stored in an MXF wrapper that has the advantage of being able to support metadata, as well as video and audio. However, MXF is not widely accepted as an editable format. People who are new to MXF often get stuck with importing the Canon XF .mxf videos to Final Cut Pro, AVID Media Composer or other professional non-linear video editors. Here are some free and handy tools for Mac users to get Canon MXF video into Final Cut Pro 7/X:

Top 3 Free & Handy tools to import Canon XF MXF files to Final Cut Pro (X)

Users of Final Cut Pro 7.0.3 and later can use it to play back movie clips in all movie formats supported by the compatible models, and to download native or Apple ProRes 422 files. For Final Cut Pro 6.0.3 to Final Cut Pro 7.0.2 users, it is possible to play back all movie clips and download these files in native or Apple ProRes 422 format (excluding files recorded in 50 Mbps (4:2:2) 1280x720/30P, 50 Mbps (4:2:2) 1280x720/25P, and 50 Mbps (4:2:2) 1280x720/24P modes).

Nowadays, kinds of camcorders record videos in HD or Full HD. Professional Photographers like to edit their camera clips without quality lossless. So as to keep the video quality as good as original. With a Mac computer, there are many useful editing software. Like FCP (X), FCE, iMovie, Adobe Premiere, Avid Studio, iPhoto etc. If you often use such editing software, you may find, each editing software has the most suitable codec for editing. Which will help us maintain video quality to a large extent. For example, FCP series prefer Apple ProRes codec, while Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC) is most suitable for iMovie or FCE. However, our camcorders record videos in kinds of video formats, when you import them into the editing software, sometimes, it will take a long time for rendering. In fact, it's the process of transcoding.

Apple Loop: iPhone 6S On Sale September 18th, With Stronger Chassis, Performance Beats Galaxy S6

Taking a look back at another week of news from Cupertino, this week's Apple Loop includes the release date of the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, Apple's changes to stop the iPhone 6S bending, user anger at iOS 8.4.1, iPhone 6S benchmarking numbers beating the Galaxy S6, thoughts on the evolution of Apple TV, Apple Music subscriber predictions, the changes to Apple Store layouts, Apple's Australian bond issue, and the Apple Watch running iOS 4.1.

Apple Loop is here to remind you of a few of the very many discussions that have happened around Apple over the last seven days (and you can read our weekly digest of Android news here on Forbes).

A Strong iPhone Is Going To Cost You

Following on from the leak of the new iPhone 6S chassis, parts from the supply chain have been tested to destruction on video to find out how strong the new design might be. It's good news for those wanting a robust phone, but your wallet might not agree:
“It comes from Unbox Therapy, originators of the iPhone 6 'Bendgate' stories, and founder Lewis Hilsenteger has managed to attain an iPhone 6S chassis from famed Apple leaker Sonny Dickson. What has Hilsenteger learnt? The new iPhones will be very strong and potentially very expensive. 
In a two stage test, Hilsenteger has worked with Elemental Controls to identify the material of the new iPhone chassis and with phone skin maker dbrand to scientifically stress test them. I had been speaking extensively with Hilsenteger and Dickson prior to the video's release and here's what we learn…”
What material does the iPhone 6S chassis use, how strong is it, and what impact will it have on the cost of your new iPhone?

iPhone 6S

iPhone 6S Release Date Is Closer Than You Might Have Thought

The release date of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus is earlier than previously thought. While early information pointed to September 25th for the handset to go on sale, recent leaks from networks in Germany, the UK, and Japan point to an earlier date. Forbes' Gordon Kelly investigates:
“Following a leaked internal memo from Vodafone last month, prominent Japanese site ITHome and German tech experts Macerkopf have both discovered that the new iPhones 6Ses will launch in their respective countries on September 18th. This ties perfectly with the Vodafone internal memo for the UK, which also carried a September 18th launch date.
Japan, Germany and the UK are all tier one Apple launch countries with iPhones traditionally being made available to them at the same time as the US release.”
The nine-day window between launch and retail sale closely matches the timetable used in previous iTunes launches (2014 saw the reveal on Sept 9th, going on sale on Sept 19th). If the same timetable is being used, pre-orders are likely to open on Friday 11th of September, which should help Apple predict local demand.

Anger At Cynical iOS 8.4.1 Update

The latest release of iOS 8.4.1 addressed a number of issues around Apple Music, and while Apple has been quick to try to fix the issues around the streaming subscription service, other long-standing issues remain unresolved to the chagrin of many users.
“Frustratingly Apple has also still not fixed the infamous WiFried bug, which has plagued users since the release of iOS 8 in September 2014. Apple has acknowledged the issue since iOS 8.3, but a full fix (switching the troubled DiscoveryD process back to mDNSResponder used in previous iOS generations) will not take place until iOS 9 and the launch of the iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus. 
Similarly Apple has already confirmed the crippled Home Sharing implementation introduced in iOS 8.4 won't be addressed until iOS 9.”
Beyond Apple Music, does iOS 8.4.1 have any redeeming features? Not if you are jail breaking your iPhone, no…

Free Import DVD to iTunes 12, 11 on Windows/Mac

In this guide I'll show you how to free put DVDs onto iTunes 12/11. Instead of spending a bunch of money on the iTunes store and buying movies through iTunes you can actually copy any movie from any DVD onto iTunes 12 and then sync them to your iPhone 6 plus, iPad Air 2, iPad Mini 3/2, iPad 3, iPod Touch 5 and more. That's what I'm going to show you how to do today.

Here are two user's questions from and

Q1: Putting DVDs into iTunes?

"Hello, I am wanting to put some DVDs into iTunes then I can transfer them onto my iPad Air so I can watch them while on holiday later next month. Does anyone know of an accessible way to do this on the pc? Another thing, these DVDs are all legally purchased, and not copied. 

Thanks for any help."

Q2: Copy DVD's to iTunes?

Hello, I was wondering what is the easiest way to copy my personal DVD's to my iTunes library so I can watch them on my iPod touch. I have tried some free ripper tool but I am having a lot of trouble with it and it is painfully slow.

Any suggestions? Has one one else experienced any issues? Any help would be appreciated. 

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.7)"

As always, you can't import DVD video files to iTunes directly, and neither can you enjoy HD movies without costs in iTunes Store, despite its advance to iTunes 12. So how to import DVD movies into new iTunes 12 for watching, and furthermore convert DVD video audio file to all devices besides Apple iPhone, iPad, iPod.

In this walkthrough I'm going to tell you how to convert DVD into a *.mov file using the open source cross-platform VLC media player. This free program is available for Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS X, and most distributions of Linux including Ubuntu, Fedora, SuSe, and many others. When you are done you will have a single file that you can play either in VLC media player on any computer, or you can import the file into iTunes on a Mac or PC and be able to play it within iTunes or QuickTime, and then you can sync it to your iPhone 6, iPad Air, iPad 3, iPod Touch 5, etc. to watch any time.

NOTE: This walkthrough is meant to be used ONLY with DVDs that you own for backup purposes only.

How to Rip a DVD to iTunes 12/11 with VLC?

Step 1: Go to and download VLC media player for free for your operating system, then install it.

Step 2: Insert the DVD you want to copy into your computer and open up VLC media player.

Step 3: Select 'File' on the top menu, and select 'Open Disc…' from the drop down menu.

Step 4: Select the Title you want to copy. On most movies this will simply be '1', and if there are any special features they will be titles '2', '3', and so on. Usually with TV series on DVD '1' will be the first episode, '2' will be the second, etc. Put in the title number box the number you believe is the title you want to copy. At this point it's a good idea to check that you're going to rip the correct video file so go ahead and click 'OK' at the bottom and the correct Title should begin to play. If this isn't the correct Title, then try a different number until you get the right one, once you have the correct title continue to the next step.

Step 5: Check the box that says 'Streaming/Saving:' on the bottom left hand corner, at this point the 'Settings…' box should not be grayed out so click on it so we can fine tune the video and audio encoding settings.

Step 6: Check the 'File' box at the top and then click Browse. Now you will need to select where you want to save the file and what you want to name it. Select a directory where you would like it to be saved. My Videos on a PC or your Movies folder on a Mac/Linux is a good place for now. Make sure that at the end of the name you add '.mov' because VLC will not automatically add the file extension.

Optional: For advanced users, if you are not planning on importing this into iTunes to use on an iPhone 6/iPad Air you can select a different file extension such as .mpg, but just make sure that when you encode it you use the correct MPEG TS encapsulation method and mp4v or other corresponding transcoding option.

Step 7: Now we need to select the encapsulation method. On a PC or Linux you need to select MOV and in OS X select QuickTime.

Step 8: Check the box next to 'Video' in transcoding options. In the drop-down menu select 'h264' under the 'Bitrate' select '1024' and under 'Scale' select 1.

Step 9: Check the box next to 'Audio' in transcoding options. In the drop-down menu select 'mp4a' under the 'Bitrate' select '192' and under the 'Channels' select 2.

Step 10: Now click 'OK' at the bottom on the box and it will close. Click 'OK' again in the original box and the ripping will begin. Depending on the speed of your computer this can take anywhere from 15-40 minutes to import every half hour of video.

Step 11: Import the video into iTunes by dragging it into the Movie section. you can now play the movie right in iTunes, enjoy!

Optional: If you wish to sync the video with your iPhone 6/iPad Air/iPod 5 etc. ios devices, go to the Movies tab within iTunes, select any videos you wish to put on your iPhone 6, right click them and select 'Convert Selection for iPod/iPhone'. iTunes will automatically convert the videos to the correct format for your iOS devices and you can now sync them straight to your all iOS devices!

For Reference: A regular 30 minuet TV show will produce a roughly 200MB file, and a 1.5 hour-long movie will produce a roughly 800MB file.

NOTE: VLC 2 and higher uses a new video library. Many apps use the VLC video library to 'do their thing.' To repair the video library you must install the VLC library into your Mac in a place where it is accessible by other apps such as VideoDrive. Download the installer from VLC: Run it. Check with Terminal to verify a proper installation: Type this in Terminal: file /usr/lib/libdvdcss.2.dylib You should see this: /usr/lib/libdvdcss.2.dylib: Mach-O universal binary with 2 architectures /usr/lib/libdvdcss.2.dylib (for architecture i386):     Mach-O dynamically linked shared library i386 /usr/lib/libdvdcss.2.dylib (for architecture x86_64):     Mach-O 64-bit dynamically linked shared library x86_64 If you see "Unknown File" or similar message, it did not work. Apps that use the VLC video library will now work again.

This method may be more complex for the primary users, the following is an VLC alternative:

About iTunes Supported Format:

iTunes can currently read, write and convert between MP3, AIFF, WAV, MPEG-4, AAC and Apple Lossless (.m4a).

iTunes can also play any audio files that QuickTime can play (as well as some video formats), including Protected AAC files from the iTunes Store and audio books. There is limited support for Vorbis and FLAC enclosed in an Ogg container (files using the Ogg container format are not natively supported) or Speex codecs with the Xiph QuickTime Components. Because tag editing and album art is done within iTunes and not QuickTime, these features will not work with these QuickTime components. As of Snow Leopard, iTunes 9 (Mac) will play HE-AAC / AAC+ internet streams. The latest version of iTunes (Win/Mac) supports importing audio CDs with the default iTunes standard file format of AAC at 256 kbit/s, but users can choose from 16 kbit/s to 320 kbit/s constant bit rates (CBR) in either AAC or MP3.Importing of audio CDs into MP3 or AAC formats can also be accomplished using variable bitrate (VBR) encoding.

The Windows version of iTunes can automatically transcode DRM-free WMA (including version 9) files to other audio formats, but does not support playback of WMA files and will not transcode DRM protected WMA files. Telestream, Inc. provides free codecs for Mac users of QuickTime to enable playback of unprotected Windows Media files. These codecs are recommended by Microsoft.

In addition to importing CDs into the iTunes library, the user can also import non-Apple mp3 files from and other sources. This can be accomplished by either right clicking on the file, selecting open with, and then selecting iTunes or dragging the file into the open iTunes window. Alternatively, for mp3s, the Amazon MP3 Downloader application will automatically import the mp3 files into the iTunes library.
