There are various reasons why data can be lost, from accidental deletion to hardware malfunctions, and the consequences can range from minor inconveniences to significant financial or personal losses. In this context, it's important to be aware of the most common iPhone data loss scenarios, as well as the steps you can take to minimize the risk of data loss and ensure that your data is recoverable if the worst happens.

"All modern Apple devices, including iPhones and iPads, feature a robust hardware-based encryption layer integrated into the device, ensuring the security of user data."

The hardware-based encryption layer on modern iPhones and iPads has a significant impact on data recovery efforts. In case of data loss or corruption, the encrypted data cannot be easily retrieved through conventional data recovery methods, as the encryption layer provides an additional level of security. However, data recovery specialists with expertise in iPhone and iPad data recovery have the necessary tools and techniques to overcome encryption barriers and retrieve lost data. At Wildfire Data Recovery we use advanced algorithms and decryption methods to unlock and extract the encrypted data from the device. This includes finding lost pin codes or passwords.

Yes, iPhones are encrypted by default to ensure the security and privacy of user data. Apple has integrated a hardware-based encryption layer into its devices, including iPhones, which encrypts all data stored on the device, making it inaccessible to unauthorized access. Encryption is essential as it protects sensitive data, including personal information, financial data, and other confidential information from being accessed by unauthorized users. It also safeguards against theft, data breaches, or other malicious attacks.


Furthermore, encryption ensures that even if the device is lost or stolen, the data remains secure and inaccessible to the thief. Without the encryption key, the data is rendered useless, protecting the user's privacy and security.


While encryption is essential for securing user data on iPhones, it can impede data recovery efforts. Encrypted data cannot be easily retrieved through conventional data recovery methods, as the encryption layer provides an additional layer of security. Without the encryption key, the encrypted data is inaccessible and unreadable. Even if the data is recovered, it cannot be deciphered without the key, rendering the recovered data useless. However, data recovery specialists with iPhone data recovery expertise have the tools and techniques to overcome encryption barriers and retrieve lost data. Such specialists use advanced algorithms and decryption methods to unlock and extract the encrypted data from the device.

"Encrypted data is ALWAYS a challenge to recover, regardless if it is an Apple iMac or iPad. Even by recovering the raw sectors from a failed drive, for example, does not mean success as those sectors are still encrypted, which means it is still scrambled."

However, it's important to note that Wildfire Data Recovery engineers have the necessary tools and expertise to unlock or bypass passcode, Touch ID or Face ID and decrypt the data, even if the device is encrypted. Please make no attempts at home as this can lead to your iPhone becoming disabled and all the data being lost. We can help with all of the below, plus much more:

  • assist with iOS corruption,

  • lost or forgotten 4 or 6 digit pin codes,

  • detection and removal of malware,

  • detection and removal of spyware such as mSPY,

  • collection and analysis of iPhone data for complex investigations (stalking cases, abuse from ex-partners etc.)

  • resulting from iPhone Error 14,

  • iPhone stuck in recovery mode or

  • Error 4013

"You may only get one shot at recovering your precious choose wisely."


Our Wildfire Data Recovery, iPhone data, and file recovery services have a documented 97% success rate. Unfortunately, this does not mean that we can recover data from any iPhone problem. Like all electronic devices with built-in complexity, iPhones have limitations to what can be recovered. This, of course, depends on the issue and the complexity of the problem. 

We all know that the Apple store can solve a lot of the day to day problems we may experience with our iPhones, but do not give up if the Apple store or a local repair shop is deeming your data unrecoverable!

You may be wondering how to fix a water-damaged iPhone, your options, or if data recovery is even possible. If you have a water-damaged iPhone, taking immediate action is essential to reduce the risk of data loss. Here are six steps you can take to minimize data loss and improve the chances of successful data recovery:


Here are the steps you should take:

  1. Power off your iPhone: If your iPhone is still on, power it off immediately. Do not attempt to charge or use it until it's been properly cleaned and dried.

  2. Remove any accessories: Remove any cases, cables, or other accessories attached to your iPhone.

  3. Dry your iPhone: Use a soft cloth or towel to dry your iPhone as much as possible. Do not use a hairdryer or other heat source, as it may cause further damage to the device.

  4. DO NOT! Place your iPhone in a bag of rice: Placing your iPhone in a bag of dry rice or silica gel packets, can lead to contamination and blockage of the critical components of the iPhone. 

  5. Do not turn on your iPhone: Resist the temptation to turn on your iPhone to check if it still works. Doing so may cause further damage and reduce the chances of successful data recovery.

  6. Contact a professional data recovery service: Water damage can cause significant damage to your iPhone, making data recovery challenging. Contact a professional data recovery service with expertise in iPhone data recovery to assess the damage and determine the best course of action.

iPhone impact damage refers to physical damage caused to an iPhone due to impact, such as dropping the device or hitting it against a hard surface. Impact damage can lead to various issues, including cracked screens, damaged internal components, and other hardware problems that can result in data loss. The extent of impact damage can vary, and it can affect different parts of the iPhone, such as: 


  • the screen,

  • camera,

  • logic board,

  • battery,

  • storage media (NAND flash memory).


If the impact is severe enough, it can cause irreparable damage to the internal components, making data recovery impossible. In some cases, impact damage may also cause physical damage to the storage media. Seeking professional data recovery services from experienced specialists is crucial to maximize the chances of successful data recovery while ensuring the security and privacy of your data.

NOTE: Even if the iPhone still powers on after impact damage, the damage may still cause data loss. For example, the impact may damage the storage device or cause data corruption, leading to inaccessible or lost data. Additionally, the iPhone may start exhibiting performance issues or error messages that prevent access to certain files or data.

If you suspect iPad or iPhone data loss or iPhone mobile phone failure, contact the experts at Wildfire Data Recovery Brisbane to get your data back as quickly as possible; time is of the essence.

Like most data storage devices both physical damage and logical errors can occur:


  • An example of physical damage on a smartphone is when the flash memory chip or the controller fails on the internal circuit board due to a fall (see story above), and the device can no longer be used. Or the internal memory chips partially break within the device and data can no longer be accessed or saved.

  • Several examples of a logical error would be missing or incorrect file structures or linkages, corrupt files and file formats as well as faulty memory allocations. In short, all logical errors cause files not to be displayed, but still exist on the memory.
