From shopping list to checklist of work schedule, we like using notes to keep a accurate track of what to do in our mind. Certainly you don't want to bring pen and paper with you, so iPhone has become a convenient notes-taking tool to write down your thought and idea wherever you go. But the notes in your device are not always safe from being lost. You may lose the notes in your iPhone as a result of failed jailbreak, water damage, recent iOS upgrade, factory setting or other unknown reasons. If you find out your iPhone is devoid of notes but don't know why, don't worry. You still stand a change to get back the notes as long as you have made regular backups of your iPhone with iTunes on your computer.
Usually, iTunes is a great way to restore your lost notes on iPhone, but iTunes does not provide you with the chance to restore the needed notes from backup. Instead, iTunes covers the existing content in your device during recovery. This does not serve your purpose but make it worse.
If you are looking for a program that enables you to retrieve the notes selectively and quickly from iTunes backup you made, then iOS Data Recovery—which was intentionally designed as an iTunes backup extractor in mind—is the absolute easiest you'll ever use. It's good at its field and helps extracting missing notes and other data from iTunes backup without the loss of current data.
Apart from restoration of notes from iTunes backup, this program also supports recovering notes and other important files such as contacts, call history, messages, memos, videos, reminders, pictures, whatsapp attachments from iPhone directly or from iCloud backup. It works for the majority of iOS models, like iPhone 7/ 7 Plus/ SE/ 6s/ 6/ 5, iPad Air/ Pro/ Mini, iPod touch 5.
