We've been gearing up for our 7.7 release, and here it is: today we're shipping a big new feature in iPhone Backup Extractor: command-line support. iPhone Backup Extractor is now bundled with a free command-line tool named rictl for working with iOS backups and devices. ✍️
Today's build doesn't include much that we're talking about, although it's got a big new feature for our beta testers. We'll tell you all about this in our upcoming iPhone Backup Extractor 7.7 release. Watch this space.
We'd like to wish our American friends a very happy Independence Day today. Here in the UK we've no hard feelings, although it is a pity we have to pack our own teabags when we travel to see you. 🤷♂️ We're celebrating in our own way, with a new update to iPhone Backup Extractor: 188.8.131.522. What's new?
Happy WWDC week! We've been in San Jose with Apple's team learning about iOS 13 and what's new in macOS Catalina. Here's an update to iPhone Backup Extractor to support some of the new things in iOS 13.
Feature: Who'd have thunk it? iPhone Backup Extractor can now create backups for you, and you don't need iTunes. If you also run iTunes, you'll see we create these in "archived" format. Of course, you can still do everything you normally would with them.
Improvement: Screen Time passcode recovery is now even faster. Lucky you!
Fix: We've improved the way we monitor for changes to backups. In particular, this prevents a crash that could happen in some cases.
Fix: We handle device disconnection better when it occurs during a backup.
Today we're launching a neat feature: automatically changing your iTunes backup location. 🎉 If you'd like to store your backups under a different folder, or on a network drive or in Dropbox, it's now easily possible. We've rolled this into the free edition of iPhone Backup Extractor, so anyone can take advantage of it, and we've got a support page explaining more about how this works.
It's release time again for us here at Reincubate HQ. Today's release has a handful of neat improvements and fixes. It looks like we're going to drop a new feature next week, and we're all tingling with excitement here.
Hot on the heels of yesterday's update, we're shipping another one today. What's the big news? Support for direct-from-device Screen Time passcode recovery on Windows. We released support for this on macOS the other week, but as of today, we're back to parity across platforms. Oh, and we included a minor macOS tweak, too. Let us know how you get on. We're all ears. 👂 Or should that be eyes or keyboards? We're not sure.
We didn't put out a release last week as we were knee-deep in a new feature: Screen Time passcode recovery direct from device. Today's release of 184.108.40.2069 makes this live for all macOS users. We normally release updates for both platforms at the same time, but Windows is going to catch up very soon. Watch this space. Oh — and please let us how you get on with it!
Having seen how upset people are about Slack's new icon, we're all the more delighted about the positive feedback we got when we refreshed ours last year. This week's release has a handful of minor fixes and changes. It's a smaller release, as we're simultaneously working on a rather neat new feature which we hope to have in testing next week. See you then? 💪
We've had our year-end party, worn our Christmas jumpers in the office, and planned a few getaways. What's next? Ah yes: iPhone Backup Extractor 220.127.116.113. It's out today, and it'll be our last pre-Christmas release, and likely also the last one of 2018. We hope you like it. 🎅 Users, thanks for your support and all the kind messages you share with us.
We're excited to release version 18.104.22.1680 of iPhone Backup Extractor today. After last week's speed enhancement, we've rolled 12 other improvements or fixes into this one. A number of them are behind the scenes, but let's take a look at some of the most visible ones:
It's not been a week since the last iPhone Backup Extractor update, but we're already back for more. Today's release includes a significant WhatsApp performance enhancement, a stability fix for Windows, and a host of minor enhancements and fixes.
We've had our heads down over the last couple of weeks preparing for a handful of updates to both our app and the API that powers it. Today brings with it the release of some of those new bits! We hope you enjoy them -- and as ever -- we'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback.
We're hugely excited about the upcoming iOS 12 and macOS Mojave. Today's update includes a extra features for both of these, on top of the support we already released. See you at the Apple event later today! 👋
We're back, for our first update of iPhone Backup Extractor this July. There's been plenty going on, and whilst iOS 12 support isn't new in this build, we wrote about the work we did over the last couple of weeks for Apple's iCloud changes. Yes, we fully support it all. We met Prince Charles the week before, recognising our work driving innovation in the UK, and talked about GDPR with him. How often can you write that in a change-log? I mean, really. 🤷♀️
Today's release brings our second big new feature of June: detailed Apple and mobile device data for any iOS backup or device, built in to iPhone Backup Extractor. The data we show goes way beyond the information encoded on the device and in a backup. We've had to build out an entire API with gigabytes of supporting data to be able to do this in a secure and reliable way, and we're making that freely available from today. We've written in more detail on our blog about this release, the data you're now able to access, and the API. In other news, we're off to Buckingham Palace again later today. It's a busy day.
We've been busy here at Reincubate HQ over the last couple of weeks. We're recruiting, preparing to jet off to the US for meetings, and, well... shipping software. ✈️ On that note, here's our latest release of iPhone Backup Extractor. We think this one's pretty neat.
We treated our Mac users earlier with the first release of our updated left-hand navigation. Today we're releasing the first iteration of this for Windows users, and sweeping up a few minor issues in the Mac release. There's more to come, and we'd love to read your feedback. ✍️ We'll be writing a little more in future as we continue to improve the navigation.
It's May, and it's time for a release. We've hinted at some of the changes in our plan, and the first preview of our new left-hand navigation systems is now out for macOS users. There are changes for Windows users, too, and more to come. Don't be shy: tell us what you think and how you get on with it! 🤞
We said it was coming, and here it is. On the heels of our last build we're releasing a number of fixes which help with corrupted backups and WhatsApp attachments. Also, London was 28℃ in April. 🌞 Can you believe that?
We've been celebrating our second Queen's Award, and working on a bunch of behind-the-scenes changes to iPhone Backup Extractor. This release is built from our enhanced code-base, but is otherwise similar to 22.214.171.1249. Back to regular releases shortly, and we'll ship an update build in the coming days. 👑
We're thrilled to be releasing iPhone Backup Extractor 7.6 today. It introduces a milestone new feature: previews of iCloud data. Rather than needing to download data in order to view it within the app, you can now preview a variety of data before choosing whether to download it. Happy days! ☀️ Let us know how you get on with it.
We're thrilled to release this update of iPhone Backup Extractor, headlining with support for previews of recordings in iPhone backups. To mark this, we've codenamed the release 1998: the year Britney Spears shot to fame. We've mixed feelings about that. 👩🎤
This Tuesday brings our next release, which is all about improving user experiences. We’ve made improvements to iCloud interaction, to iPhone 8 and X support, and to memory handling. This afternoon the team are off to Mansion House to meet the Lord Mayor of London on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, as part of Reincubate winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.
We’re back to our usual combined Windows and macOS updates, and today’s is a good ‘un. Sometimes we need to say goodbye to the past, and this release officially drops support for macOS 10.7. It’s to old for us to readily support with our pace of changes. 1771 — as we like to call this new release — includes the following:
This last week team RI were off for a picnic in the park, and we shipped 126.96.36.1991 with a whole list of speed and reliability enhancements. You'll see the next few builds going to make the application more robust than ever.
We've got a big new feature for you today: recovery of contacts from iCloud, independent of any backups you might have. Also, the first iOS 11 beta has only been out a few days, but we've added support for it. Happy days!
