Specs: Windows 7
My iPhone 6 screen is cracked. It is working. I am unable to unlock it with the a passcode, or use iTunes - as iTunes requires me to hit the trust button before it can detect it. I have never synced my device with a computer. I want to recover all my contacts. I do not have an apple id. Please help with iFoneMate.

If you're the registered owner then they will have "your" email address and that is your "apple" id.

You may find it useful/easier to go see a tech at an Apple store;.

Also take some proof of ownership with you...; although if y"your" email address is logged with them for that phone then likely that will suffice...I

Regardless of how you resolve your current dilemma, develop the habit of regularly backing up any iDevice; both to a computer - and I guess "the cloud". Even send a copy of backup file to yourself as an email attachment; so that you can download it and thus restore it to a computer if the one on the computer is ever lost/damaged etc..

Replacing the screen on an iPhone isnt that difficult if you are happy to tackle such job. There are plenty of videos on YouTube and i can also guide you through the steps. You will have to buy a screen from for example ebay, they will also send you a set of tools for the entire job. This usually takes about 10 minutes to complete.

if you decide to go down this route let us know and we'll guide you the best we can.

Eching "alway....s" above. With the correct tools, and perhaps video to follow at least, a screen can be replaced - if care is taken when doing it.

This is a typical youtube video; and includes references to where to locate both a new screen - and the essential toolkit,..

One usful tip:

Whenever taking apart any i-Device (or "any make of laptop, phone etc.)"... make a map (draw a digram) of where "each" screw you remove came from; so that you can replace the screw whence it came. A lot of Apple kit has screws which appear to all the same - when in fact they're not quite...; and often it may damage the threads etc. of either the "hole" or the screw itself - if one tries to put a given screw in the wrong position.

Sellotape/Scotchtape each screw to its position on your "map" and then you will "know" which goes where...

All i device data recovery software require you to interact with your phone, and at the least unlock it so that it. As the OP has said, he is unable to unlock the phone due to the defective digitizer. In that case this software will be of no use to him.

You can just download a data recovery software to help you. I personally recommend Syncios Data Recovery, If your device is running iOS 7 or above and protected with a password, please unlock it first, and tap trust on the prompt on your device to authorize this computer.

1. You may use some 3rd party iphone data recovery tools, like drfone, easeus, etc. Their are basically the same. The program won't ask you to operate on your phone, just wait the recovery process finished.
2. Go to apple support for help, maybe change a screen will be fine.

I think Syncios Data Recovery is relatively good. Most Data Recovery tools are not stable in operation, hope this helps.
