Have you ever accidentally deleted precious photos from your iPhone? Don’t worry, there are several methods you can use to recover those deleted photos and restore them back to your device. In this article, we will guide you through the process of retrieving deleted photos from your iPhone.

Method 1: Use Recently Deleted Album

If you have mistakenly deleted some photos, the first place to check is the Recently Deleted album on your iPhone. Apple provides a safety net for such situations by keeping recently deleted photos in this album for a period of 30 days before they are permanently removed.

Follow these steps to recover deleted photos using the Recently Deleted album:

  1. Open the Photos app on your iPhone.
  2. Navigate to the Albums tab at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Scroll down and select “Recently Deleted” album.
  4. You will find all the photos that have been recently deleted within this album.
  5. Select the photo(s) you want to recover.
  6. Tap on “Recover” at the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Method 2: Restore from iTunes Backup

If you have recently backed up your iPhone using iTunes, there is a good chance that your deleted photos can be recovered from that backup. However, keep in mind that restoring from an iTunes backup will replace all current data on your device with the data from the backup. So proceed with caution and make sure you have a recent backup before proceeding with this method.

Here’s how to recover deleted photos using iTunes backup:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes.
  2. Select your device when it appears in iTunes.
  3. Click on the “Restore Backup” button.
  4. Choose the most recent backup that contains the deleted photos you want to recover.
  5. Click on “Restore” and wait for the process to complete.

Method 3: Retrieve from iCloud Backup

If you regularly back up your iPhone using iCloud, there’s a high chance that your deleted photos are stored in one of these backups. Recovering from iCloud backup is similar to restoring from an iTunes backup, but it requires a stable internet connection and enough iCloud storage space for the backup.

Follow these steps to retrieve deleted photos from an iCloud backup:

  1. Go to “Settings” on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on your name at the top of the screen to access Apple ID settings.
  3. Select “iCloud” and then choose “Manage Storage”.
  4. Tap on “Backups” and select the most recent backup that contains your deleted photos.
  5. Erase all content and settings on your iPhone by going to “Settings” > “General” > “Reset” > “Erase All Content and Settings”.
  6. Follow the setup process until you reach the Apps & Data screen, then tap on “Restore from iCloud Backup”.
  7. Select the desired backup containing your deleted photos and wait for the restore process to finish.

In Conclusion

Accidentally deleting photos from your iPhone can be distressing, but with these methods, you have a good chance of recovering those precious memories. Start by checking the Recently Deleted album, and if that doesn’t work, restore from an iTunes or iCloud backup.

Remember to regularly back up your iPhone to prevent permanent loss of data. We hope this guide has helped you retrieve your deleted photos successfully!
