iTunes backup is the least thing that Apple users are unfamiliar with. Most users even backup iDevices on a regularly basis. This post will cover everything you need to know about iTunes backup including how to backup iPhone, iPad and iPod, as well as how to restore data from iTunes backup.

What does iTunes Backup Include?

iTunes can back up most data on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, which could help you restore data from iOS devices once you deleted or lost data from iDevices.

Backed-up information includes purchased music, TV shows, apps, and books; photos and video in the Camera Roll; device settings (for example, Phone Favorites, Wallpaper, and Mail, Contacts, Calendar accounts); app data; Messages (iMessage, SMS, and MMS), ringtones, and more.

How to Restore iPhone/iPad/iPod from iTunes Backup

Editor's Note: Restoring iTunes backup does help you get back lost data on iPhone, iPad and iPod.

In such cases, you could use iPhone Data Recovery to recover contacts, SMS, call history, photos, etc. directly from iPhone, iPad and iPod or from iTunes backup.
