There is no telling that a single touch on the iPhone X's screen can change your life. A few random taps and all of your efforts over the past few years slip away in a twinkling, nothing left. If you haven't back up iPhone X, then your data is probably in danger of being lost forever. But if you follow the tips below, there is still chance to get your iPhone X data back.

Before you lose your head and rush for a data recovery tool, make sure you don't worsen the situation. If you deleted the data on iPhone X not long ago without any backup being ever made before, refrain from using the device, whether it is running apps, downloading documents or surfing the internet. This is to minimize the risk of overwriting the original content. The less data being covered, the greater the chance to restore it.

Perhaps you can choose to restore from iTunes/ iCloud backup to regain the lost data, but there is one thing to be noted: Your restored data dates back to a specific backup date and before. If you deleted the stuff of iPhone X after that backup date, then the lost content cannot be found in the backup files unless you schedule the backup to occur around the clock.

If you can't get your hands on any backup files or the Apple route isn't the way you want, you can use iOS Data Recovery to retrieve lost files on iPhone X, considering what you deleted cannot be recreated easily.
