In macOS Mojave, Apple introduced new security measures to keep your data safer.
One such measure means that to access, view or extract data from an iPhone backup on your Mac, apps require permissions. For this reason, to use iBackup Extractor to extract photos, contacts, messages and more from your iPhone backup, you'll firstly need to give permission. This article will show you how.
Follow the steps below to view an iPhone backup on your Mac running macOS Catalina or newer...
From your Launchpad, open System Preferences.
Then, click 'Security and Privacy'.
Click the lock in order to make changes.
Choose 'Full Disk Access' from the list.
Click the '+' and add iBackup Extractor.
Close the window and open iBackup Extractor to view your iPhone backup content.
