Having all your data stored in iCloud is a convenience, both when you work on several devices and when you have to restore information to a new iPhone, iPad or Mac. IOS 10 and macOS Sierra have made great progress in cloud storage, With a storage management system that allows you to have all your files, photos and videos without fear of running out of space on your devices. In addition, Apple offers us the possibility of recovering any file deleted from iCloud for 30 days, whether calendars, contacts, Safari bookmarks or files stored on iCloud Drive. We show you how to recover deleted data from iCloud with a few simple steps.
Who has not lost a contact on their iPhone because someone has deleted it by mistake? By having all the data synchronized on all your devices via iCloud this contact will be deleted from all of them, and you will have no way of recovering it, apparently. Because iCloud backs up all our contacts, calendars, reminders, files and Safari bookmarks for 30 days, so recovering them is very simple.
The first thing we have to do is access our iCloud account in our browser. We type the address of iCloud.com and enter our access data. If we have Double Factor Authentication enabled we will have to enter the code that is sent to our trusted devices. Once on the iCloud desktop click on the Settings icon at the bottom of the window.
We choose the recovery option that we want to use, and a new window will appear in which we will see the different backup copies of each of the elements. I remind you that Apple only stores deleted files for 30 days, after which they will be permanently deleted. So we will only see backup copies of our data from the last 30 days. At the top we find the different tabs of contacts, calendars, etc., so even if we choose a recovery option we can change to another without having to close the window.
You must be aware of the warnings that iCloud offers you when choosing to recover data, because the remedy may be worse than the disease. For example, shared calendars cease to be, and you will have to share them again, or event invitations will be sent back to all recipients. Before pressing the Ok button, be sure to read well what Apple tells you, and use this tool only as a last resort to the loss of important data.
