The third way is to download the iCloud backup files with the Dr.Fone Toolkit – iOS Data Recovery, which specializes in restoring the backup files including the iCloud backup files.

Now let me introduce Dr.Fone – Recover (iOS) in a detailed way.

To log in to your iCloud account successfully, you should learn how to turn off two-step verification first.

Step 1. Download the Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS on your computer. And then launch it after installation.

For example, if you want to restore the contacts only, then you need to check the “Contacts” and then uncheck the rest items. If you want to restore all of the items, you can check the “Select all“. Finally, click on “Next“.

Step 4. After all the files are listed on the primary window, you can preview them one after another to choose the one that you want to restore. And then click on the “Recover to Computer” button on the lower right.

3. It is simple and convenient.
