I have just gotten rid of my iPhone 5 but did a full backup of picture and such beforehand because i wasn't fond of the phone. I do not plan on getting another iPhone. Is there a way i can get my content back? I have the backup file location but the files are not what i expected them to be.

I recommend iPhone / iPod Touch Backup Extractor (for Mac) and iPhone Backup Extractor (for Windows).

Recover lost iPhone calendar events, contacts, photos, videos, SMS messages, notes, location data and app data from iTunes backup files.
