Review: EaseUS MobiSaver Free for Mac recovers data from your iOS device

Restore accidentally deleted files from your mobile device, including photos and text messages, using a clean and elegant app.

EaseUS MobiSaver Free for Mac allows you to recover lost data from iOS devices using one of the two available recovery modes. It supports direct data extraction from a device connected via USB, as well as recovery from an iTunes backup, making it a complete mobile data recovery tool. To use it properly, however, you will have to buy the premium version, as the trial mode allows the recovery of only one file at a time.

Following a quick installation, EaseUS MobiSaver Free for Mac displays a clean interface and a warning not to launch iTunes while using it, as some data loss may occur. If your mobile device is running iOS 7, you will have to "Trust" the Mac it's connected to in order for the app to have access to the data on it. The app first scans the connected device and then lets you preview data, which you can then choose to recover. You are able to recover all sorts of deleted data, from contacts and SMS to media files and bookmarks. You can complete the recovery process with just a few clicks. The process, itself, is relatively speedy, too: We recovered a 100MB video file in a little over a minute. In terms of overall performance, the app proves to be well optimized and reliable.

If you ever delete something on your iPhone or iPad by accident or are forced to restore and wipe the entire device, a tool like EaseUS MobiSaver Free for Mac becomes invaluable in salvaging data. Although using the free version of the app for restoring many files is tedious due to its limitations, it's still a great option for one-off recoveries.
