Recovering deleted photos from an iPhone could be both easy and difficult, depending on whether you delete pictures permanently and whether you have made a backup of your iPhone data before. Specify your situation and try one of the tips below to recover deleted photos from your iPhone in a few simple steps.
The easiest solution to retrieve deleted photos from iPhone is to restore items from the Recently Deleted folder. However, this tip is only workable when you want to recover photos that are deleted within 40 days and that are not emptied from the folder. That means if you have deleted photos for more than 40 days or you have emptied Recently Deleted after you remove pictures from the camera roll, you will need to try other tips provided below.
To recover deleted photos from iPhone via Recently Deleted:
Step 1. Open the Photos app on your iPhone and tap "Albums".
Step 2. Scroll down to find "Recently Deleted" and click it.
Step 3. Tap the "Select" button in the top right corner and then tap to choose the items you want to recover.
Step 4. Tap "Recover" > "Recover Photos" to recover deleted photos from Recently Deleted.
If you want to recover permanently deleted photos from your iOS device, you can apply the iPhone data recovery software - EaseUS MobiSaver to have a try, whether you have a backup or not.
Such a tool provides you with three data recovery options:
Using an iPhone data recovery tool is the only solution to recover permanently deleted photos when there is no backup available. Even if you have made an iTunes or iCloud backup before, using such a tool spares you from resetting your device to recover iPhone data from an iTunes or iCloud backup. By doing so, you can avoid further data loss on your iPhone.
To recover deleted photos from iPhone:
Step 1. Launch EaseUS MobiSaver and select "Recover from iOS Device" mode and click "Scan."
Step 2. Then, EaseUS MobiSaver will display all photos you've deleted from your device. You can select the one (ones) you'd like to recover and then click "Recover" to bring them back.
If you need to retrieve deleted photos from iPhone via an iTunes or iCloud backup, choose "Recover from iTunes" or "Recover from iCloud" at the beginning.
With an iTunes backup, you can also choose to recover deleted photos via iTunes directly. However, unlike using an iPhone data recovery tool, you can't recover deleted photos only. Instead, all your iPhone content will be replaced by the data and settings in the iTunes backup. That means the data existing on your iPhone but not in the backup will get lost.
If that's not what you expect, applying method 2 to retrieve deleted photos is advisable. While if you don't mind it, follow the steps below to get back deleted photos on iPhone using iTunes:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to the computer and wait for iTunes to launch.
Step 2. Click on the "Device" button.
Step 3. Choose "Restore Backup" and select the backup you want to restore photos from.
Step 4. Click "Restore" to start restoring your iPhone from the backup.
Similarly, you can also recover permanently deleted photos on your iPhone from an iCloud backup. Before you start, you need to reset your iPhone first so that you can go through the setup process again. (Go to Settings > "Generally" > "Reset" > "Erase All Content and Settings.") Afterward, set up your device and choose to restore iPhone from an iCloud backup to recover your deleted photos.
Step 1. Set up your iPhone until you see the Apps & Data screen.
Step 2. Choose "Restore from iCloud Backup" and sign into iCloud.
Step 3. Choose a backup to restore your iPhone data.
The best solution to avoid complete data loss is to back up your precious data regularly. iTunes and iCloud are generally used to back up the whole device. If you prefer to make a backup of your precious data selectively, you should try the iPhone transfer software - EaseUS MobiMover.
With such a tool installed on your computer, you can transfer iPhone photos to PC or back up your iPhone photos to computer. Both serve the function of making a backup of your iPhone photos. Besides, other than photos, it also supports videos, contacts, audio files, messages, books, and more.
To back up your iPhone photos:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your PC or Mac, run EaseUS MobiMover, then choose "Phone to PC". With this feature under 1-click transfer, you can back up all your iPhone photos to the computer at once. Click the "Next" button to move to the following step.
Step 2. Select "Pictures" from the supported data types. By default, MobiMover will save the exported files on your desktop. If you don't like, you are free to customize the storage path by clicking "Custom Path".
Step 3. Now, click the "Transfer" button to start backing up your iPhone photos to computer. Depending on the size of the files, it may take seconds or a while to completes. Wait patiently, then check these items at the destination.
Whether you have a backup or not, there are solutions for you to recover deleted photos from your iPhone. To avoid data loss from happening, you are highly recommended to back up your important files to another device or cloud storage. By doing so, you can minimize the chance of complete data loss.
