iBackup Extractor will read the contents of backups made to your local computer only. As such, the software cannot read backups of your device made to iCloud.

If your backups are set to be stored in iCloud, you can change this in your iTunes settings (or in Finder on macOS Catalina).

To create a local backup of your device to your Windows PC or Mac running earlier than macOS Catalina:

  1. Open iTunes on your computer.
  2. Connect your iPhone / iPod Touch / iPad.
  3. Click your device icon.
  4. Ensure you are viewing the Summary tab.
  5. Under Backups, make sure "This computer" is selected, then hit "Back up Now".
