Primo iPhone Data Recovery
There may come a time when your iPhone becomes non-responsive, you get stuck with a black screen and a ghostly Apple logo stares back at you, so who are you going to call? Or, better still, how are you going to fix your phone and put yourself back on the road to happiness? There’s a myriad of iPhone recovery programs available and whilst I’m no expert at recovering a broken iPhone, I recently came across Primo iPhone Data Recovery, which was launched in February of this year. This new program claims to bring back data ‘with nothing omitted‘ and whilst my iPhone 6S is functioning perfectly normally, I decided to give Primo a test drive short of actually performing an iPhone repair.
The first thing that strikes you is the clean interface which gives an immediate impression of simplicity, with a menu on the left hand side where you can choose to recover from iTunes, iCloud or a local back up. The wording can be a little confusing because recovery and backup can mean two different things to most people and on screen 2 it would probably have been more appropriate to to read ‘backup from iOS device’, but maybe that’s just me. Assuming then that recover meant backup, I proceeded to backup with the entire process taking no more than two minutes, bearing in mind that I wouldn’t consider myself a heavy user and the resulting folder was around 2.5Gb.
I was rather surprised to find that Primo doesn’t offer back up over WiFi such as iTunes does, but clearly the recovery option is best dealt with via USB cable for security/safety purposes. It’s also worth pointing out that regular back ups through iTunes and/or iCloud are a must, especially if you haven’t set these to automatic.
Primo backs up quickly, allows you to choose the export location and a quick browse through the resulting folder confirms that it’s up to date and all those precious photos and Whatsapp messages are squirreled away in their respective folders.
Once the ‘recovery’ is complete, a friendly greeting informs you that the process has been completed successfully…
…which I then followed by clicking on the repair icon to the left.
In conclusion, Primo iPhone Data Recovery does exactly what it says on the tin as far as backing up data is concerned and, not having a broken iPhone to hand, I wasn’t able to test the iPhone repair function. However, if disaster should strike, Primo would be my first port of call if only to see first hand this simple to use recovery software in action. It’s also worth pointing out that regular device backups are essential, especially with iTunes and iCloud making that task so simple, giving no iPhone user any excuse for not having a backup to draw from.
As an extra bonus for our readers, I’ve put together a short video of Primo’s backup process in action.
The following guides are also available directly from Primo’s website and may be very helpful when acquiring the program.
