Part 1. Why iPhone Deleted Your Emails, Calendars, SMS, Contacts, Apps and other Files

There are many situations that iPhone will delete your contents. Here we list the ones that affect you most.

  • Sync with iTunes or iCloud. You lost iPhone data after sync, and this is a very common issue to iOS users.
  • Not enough available storage. Installing other apps or downloading media to your iPhone reduces the storage limit considerably, and consequently, your iPhone might delete older messages or other data when your inbox starts to get full or storage space is low.
  • Factory settings restore. When you restore from iTunes backup or iCloud backup, the current data will be erased.
  • iOS 10/9.3/9/8 or iOS 7.1.2 update. In fact, updating to iOS (any version) could wipe off your iPhone data.
  • Accidently deletion. You might delete your photos, messages, contacts, notes by accidently, or your child wrongly deleted your files but you didn't notice.
  • Jailbreak. iOS jailbreak, including iOS 7.1.x jailbreak (iOS 7.1.2/7.1.1 jailbreak) could delete all your iPhone contents.
  • Other unknown reasons.
