With the 2nd round of celebrity photo leak, most of you must be wondering what kind of stuff you've synced to iCloud. But unfortunately, you can't read iCloud backup on PC (a package with all data mixed together displaying as unreadable code) as usual as you browse documents.

Does that mean there's no way for you to access photos, contacts, videos, etc. from iCloud backup on PC? Of course not! On the contrary, you have 3 options to browse iCloud backup just as below.

The following are the detailed instructions on how to access iCloud backup files for iPhone SE/6s/6s Plus/6 Plus/6/5S/5C/5/4s, iPad 4/3/2, iPad Air 2/Air, iPad mini 3/2 and iPod touch 5/4.

This is the only way that Apple allows you to check iCloud backup online. All you need is to enter (no follow) and log in with your iCloud account or Apple ID.

After restoring, you can directly read text messages, photos, contact and more from iCloud backup on your iPhone, iPad or iPod. But make sure to backup the current data on your iOS devices in advance.
