iPhone Bookmark Recovery: Recover Deleted Bookmarks on iPhone
Can I retrieve Safari bookmarks deleted on iPhone?
Does anybody know how to retrieve Safari bookmarks that I deleted on my iPhone? I recently deleted a bookmarks folder from my iPhone that contained many, many bookmarks. Is there any way to recover them, or am I out of luck since I didn’t have a backup file created? Thanks.
It happens to all of us: Things get deleted accidentally and when we’re wise to it, they’ve gone. iPhone Bookmarks are the same. There is no recycle or trash bin in your device. Thus, most of people consider that deleted bookmarks have been lost permanently if they don’t have a backup. Actually, they’re wrong. Just as data loss on hard drives, deleted data is not gone immediately, unless it’s been overwritten by new data.
How to recover iPhone Bookmarks
There are two ways to recover iPhone Bookmarks: Directly recover them from iPhone or recover them by extracting iTunes backup. To perform the iPhone Bookmark recovery, you need to download and install a recovery tool on your computer first: Wondershare Dr.Fone (for Windows users), or Wondershare Dr.Fone (Mac) (for Mac users). The Windows version allows you to recover Bookmarks from iPhone in both two ways, and you can use the Mac version to extract your iTunes backup to recover previous data.
Download the free trial version below to take a try.
Connecting your iPhone to the computer, launch the program and you’ll get the interface as follow. There are two recovery modes for your option: Recover from iOS Device and Recover from iTunes Backup File. Choose the former one and move to the next step.
Note: To recover from your iTunes backup, choose “Recover from iTunes Backup File” option.
Step 2: Enter the DFU mode and scan your iPhone for lost Bookmarks
Now, follow the steps below to get into the DFU mode before you recover deleted Bookmarks from iPhone:
- Hold your iPhone and click “Start”.
- Then immediately press “Home” and “Power” buttons for exact 10 seconds.
- After 10 seconds, release “Power” button and keep pressing “Home” button for another 10 seconds.
After that, you’ll be told that you’ve successfully entered the DFU mode. The software begins scanning your iPhone for lost data.
Step 3: Preview & recover iPhone Bookmarks
After the scan, all your lost data and current data on iPhone will be found and displayed in clear categories. To check your Bookmarks, select the category of “Safari Bookmark” and preview the content one by one. Mark those you want and click “Recover” to save them on your computer.
Note: Data found here includes deleted data and those currently on your iPhone. If you only want back your deleted ones, you can refine the scan result by using the slide button at bottom to only display deleted items.
