What is iMyFone Umate Pro?
Once you start using it, your device no longer feels like new. This main reason behind this is the accumulation of junk files such as application data, cache files, etc. That’s where iMyFone Umate Pro comes in.
iMyFone Umate Pro is the ultimate utility for erasing data and cleaning up your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
It is incredibly useful for those users who own 16 GB devices or are running out of space. Here are some of its features –
- Securely erase all your private data with 0% recovery
- Wipe messages, contacts, call logs, photos, videos, browsing data, and much more.
- Supports third-party apps such as WhatsApp, Kik, Viber, etc.
- Full compatibility with Windows and Mac.
- Blazing-fast performance.
The current version of iMyFone Umate Pro is 126.96.36.199 and is updated regularly by the developers.
Why do I need iMyFone Umate Pro?
iMyFone Umate Pro isn’t limited to a single function. You can clean up junk files, erase data, fully reset your iPhone, etc.
As you know, smartphones are no longer limited to calling and messaging these days. They contain our private information such as our personal details, photos, videos and other sensitive information such as logins/passwords.
This makes privacy and security all the more important.
Do you know that your data can still be recovered after you perform a factory reset? All it takes is the right tools to restore all your deleted data. However, this problem can be solved by using a special tool such as iMyFone Umate Pro.
It completely erases your data with a zero percent chance of recovery. Even after you sell your device off, no one can get hands on your data and other information.
In addition to that, you can fully clean up your device and free up space.
So if you are selling off your iPhone or simply want to make it fast again, Umate Pro is the companion you need.
As you know, I know several iOS devices, only some of which are are non-jailbroken. I had an iPad Mini lying around, which I thought would be perfect for testing out iMyFone Umate Pro.
Here’s the setup I will be using in my review given below.
- Device – iPad Mini (16GB)
- Firmware – iOS 9.3.5
- Operating System – Windows 10
- Jailbreak Status – Non-jailbroken
How to Use iMyFone Umate Pro
- Firstly, install this software on your computer (no portable version is available).
- After the installing process is over, connect your iOS device to the computer via USB cable. Wait for it to detect your device.
- Once Umate Pro has detected it, here are the different actions you can perform.
One click is all it takes to get your device squeaky clean with iMyFone Umate Pro. This is the feature you will find yourself using most often. Here’s how to use this feature.
Step 1 Connect your device. It will then present all your data cleanly in the form of a pie-chart.
Step 2 Select Quick Scan.
Step 3 It will now scan your device. The whole scanning process takes approximately 8-10 minutes.
Step 4 Umate Pro will then notify you about the types of junk files present and the space they occupy on your device. Select Clean.
Step 5 It will now begin cleaning up your device (iPad Mini in this case).
Step 6 Once the process gets over, Umate will notify you how much space has been freed up.
Erase All Data
As the name suggests, this option completely erases any and all data present on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
Just disable Find My iPhone on your device and then select the Erase button. I recommend you set the security level to Medium level. This level offers good protection while still making the process quick.
If you have a lot of sensitive information stored on your device, then use the High level.
Confirm and start the overwrite process.
Remember, doing this will delete everything from your device so proceed with caution.
Erase Deleted Files
This option becomes useful when you have already deleted files and want to ensure they can’t ever be recovered. You can erase data from the following apps –
- Call History
- Voice Memo
Erase Private Data
This option is very powerful as it allows you to selectively destroy data. You can permanently erase messages, call logs, WhatsApp/WeChat data, photos, videos, etc.
After you have selected the desired files you want to remove, select the Erase Now option.
Erase Private Fragments
This option allows you to remove data left over by third-party applications. For those who don’t know, every app you delete leaves some garbage data that must be deleted.
Here’s a list of apps compatible with this option –
iMyFone Umate Pro scans all app fragments and permanently deletes them.
Download iMyFone Umate Pro for PC/Mac
iMyFone Umate Pro is available for download for users who purchase a license. The tool offers the following different licenses that you can purchase from their official website –
- Basic (1 Device) – $29.95
- Family (2 Devices) – $39.95

Here are the download links for this amazing tool.
All in all, iMyFone Umate Pro is a solid utility that hits all the right notes. It’s so easy, your grandma could use it. I would have given this tool five stars if it offered compatibility with Linux as well.
The best part about this tool is once you purchase it, it’s yours for life. There are no extra charges involved whatsoever. Simply download it on your PC/Mac and you’re good to go. You can also try its free version before you decide to purchase a license.
This tool runs very smoothly on my mid-range setup. So you have nothing to worry about even on aging hardware. So what are you waiting for, go ahead and check it out for yourself?

A utility that doesn’t fail to impress. Highly Recommended.
I bought the app. It erased all photos on my iPhone. I attach my correspondence because it tells a lot about them. BEWARE, they are a scam.

In this case, if you only select YouTube and Skype, it will not erase your other photos.
Could you please try it again and send us a screenshot for this problem?
Thank you in advance!

You don’t understand English. I HAVE “only select YouTube and Skype” AND IT HAS ERASED MY OTHER PHOTOS, 175 GB.
I cannot “try it again”. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? ALL PHOTOS ARE GONE.

Thanks. Ok with the refund. But why only half? Your app has not wiped out half of my pictures, but 100% of them.

Actually, we are not sure that the photos were deleted by accidently or because our software has any bugs, as we cannnot get any detail information.
In this case, we usually cannot issue you a refund.

Hi. I just purchased the license code and they haven’t sent me an email with the registration code to activate my software. I even went through Paypal.
Have you tried contacting their support? They usually reply within a few hours. Also, did you check your spam section in Gmail?
I’m worried about some a program that handles my data. How secure is the software from getting to my data? I worry that somehow my data is deleted from my devices as advertised but is also now been downloaded or uploaded to someone via their software unknown to me.

Hello, Bill. iMyFone has a clean track record and they don’t store or upload deleted to their servers.
