Once you find out that your iPhone is stolen, one thing that is more important than going to the police station is to prevent your iPhone from pyring eyes, meaning prevent your personal information from falling into the hands of strangers, or worse, thieves. The utmost way is to erase all the content and settings from your iPhone remotely, but before doing so you need to make sure you have backup of all the data and settings on your lost iPhone.
If you have created backup for your iPhone through iCloud, you can choose to erase all the content on your iPhone through iCloud, provided that you have enabled â€œFind My iPhoneâ€.
Before doing so, youâ€™d better create additional backup of all the important information like Contacts, Notes, Calendar, Voice Memos, Messages, Safari Bookmarks, and Photos etc, in case that you donâ€™t have the plan to buy a new iPhone right away, but you still want to have access to the important things on your previous iPhone if you need. Or if you just want to make sure that you wonâ€™t lose any important thing due to data overwriting when you choose to restore anything from iCloud backup file.
There are a lot of third party apps claimed to be capable of exporting data from iCloud backup file, and iFonebox is one of them and performs really great in exporting data from iCloud backup file as well as transferring all the exported data to computer.
