How to View iCloud Backup

WRITTEN BY Tina ON July 6, 2015

“Hi, how can I view text messages in my iCloud backup? I cannot find them even though I log in my iCloud account on my PC. Is it possible to get access to them? Thank you!”


The same as Justin, you may wonder why you cannot view some iPhone data like text messages, pictures, apps, voicemails and other files in iCloud. This is because Apple only allows iPhone users to check only part of the data instead of the complete one. When you enter your iCloud account, you will find that you can merely check your photos, contacts, calendar, notes, mail, reminders, numbers, pages, keynotes etc. If you need to get access to the complete data, you are required to use a tool like iPhone Data Recovery to view and download the entire iCloud backup.

iPhone Data Recovery can help iPhone users preview, extract and download the entire iCloud backup on PC. Besides giving you the chance to view all your iCloud backup content in an easy way, you can recover and save all files on PC safely. Now read on and learn the solution.
