By | October 29, 2014


“Hello! I do not have my iPhone 5, but I do have an old iPod 4G, a PC running Linux and Windows XP, and iTunes with backups of the iPhone. My questions is, can I view photos, apps, texts, and other data without the physical iPhone?  For example, could I use an emulator and iPhone firmware to access the backup? Can I view the contents of backup files? My device is iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.6. Thank you. “
