My iPhone call logs have vanished. I know there is no way I could have deleted them myself. Yet everything else on my iPhone is there: apps, photos, everything else that is backed up to iCloud. Is there an isolated iCloud issue/outage going on? Should I try restoring from my last iPhone backup? I have no idea what is going on. I’d appreciate any help anyone could give me.
We all know that for the regular iOS data, like mail, contacts, calendars, etc. you can always view it using a computer’s browser at icloud.com. But how to view and download call logs from iCloud backup? If you restore an older iCloud backup, it will erase all of the content on your phone and replace it with the contents of the backup. It seems like a real weakness in the iCloud backup system. Don’t be anxious, iFonebox is able to view the specific App data from the backup and copy them from backup to your computer.
