Data Trouble in Broken iPhone?

Yesterday, I got my iPhone 6 broken yesterday while I was shopping with my friend. We brought quite a lot stuffs on our hands and then my phone rang. I tried to took my phone out but dropped it on the ground carelessly. When I picked it up, I found that the phone screen was broken. I can barely use the phone then since the touch screen is no longer sensitive to my fingers. I must take my phone repaired but before doing so, I want to recover all those data in case of losing them. If you have any suggestion for me to solve this problem, please tell me. Thank you.
