Recover Call History from iPhone Backup

Whenever you make or receive a call, your device will make a record of it in your iPhone's Call Log. If you wish to save this Call Log, for backup purposes, or for legal reasons, you can use iBackup Extractor. You can easily browse and copy your iPhone call historys to your computer, or print them out!

Your device's call log storage may contain calls from various sources including telephone, WhatsApp, FaceTime, Skype and Microsoft Teams calls. A backup will only contain call logs from third-party apps like WhatsApp and Skype if they are contained in your iPhone's standard call log storage - iBackup Extractor will not be able to access the apps themselves to gain access to other call logs.

Extract call logs from iPhone backup

If you're using iOS 13 or higher, encrypted iOS backups are required for iBackup Extractor to be able to recover your call history. If your call history is not showing up in iBackup Extractor and if you still have access to the iPhone that created a backup, please create a new encrypted iPhone backup as detailed in this guide. Then please extract your call history from backup as detailed below.

Extracting Call History Logs

Select which call logs you wish to extract by selecting one or more entries on the display list, then press the "Copy Call Logs"(PC) or "Copy To Mac" button in the Call Log browser. iBackup Extractor will then ask you where you want the data saved, and an HTML file containing the Call Log data will be created. If no entry is selected, the entire collection of Call Logs will be extracted.

You can also copy your Call Logs as PDF or CSV. To do this, select the Call Log/s that you wish to save, and hit "Save PDF" or "Save CSV".

Printing Call History

You can also print Call History Logs using iBackup Extractor. To print, simply select the entries you wish to print, and hit Print.
