Have you accidentally deleted precious pictures from your iPhone? Don’t panic!

There are several methods you can try to recover those deleted photos. In this article, we will guide you through the process of getting deleted pictures back on iPhone.

1. Check the Recently Deleted Album

If you have recently deleted the pictures, there is a high chance they are still in the “Recently Deleted” album on your iPhone. Follow these steps to check:

  1. Open the Photos app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on the “Albums” tab at the bottom.
  3. Scroll down and find the “Recently Deleted” album.
  4. Tap on it to open.
  5. You will see all the photos that have been deleted in the last 30 days.
  6. Select the photos you want to recover.
  7. Tap on “Recover” at the bottom right corner of the screen.

2. Restore from an iCloud Backup

If you have enabled iCloud backup for your iPhone, there is a possibility that your deleted pictures are backed up and can be restored. Here’s how to do it:

  • Note: Restoring from an iCloud backup will replace all data on your iPhone with the backup data, so make sure you have a recent backup before proceeding.
  • Step-by-step Instructions:

    1. Go to Settings on your iPhone.
    2. Tap on your Apple ID at the top of Settings.
    3. Select “iCloud”.
    4. Tap on “iCloud Backup”.
    5. Make sure the “iCloud Backup” toggle is turned on.
    6. Tap on “Back Up Now” to create a new backup if you haven’t done it recently.
    7. Once the backup is complete, go to Settings again.
    8. Select “General”.
    9. Scroll down and tap on “Reset”.
    10. Choose “Erase All Content and Settings”.
    11. Your iPhone will restart and display the setup screen.
    12. Follow the on-screen instructions until you reach the “Apps & Data” screen.
    13. Select “Restore from iCloud Backup”.
    14. Sign in with your Apple ID and choose the latest backup that contains your deleted pictures.
    15. Wait for the restore process to complete. This may take some time depending on your internet connection and the size of the backup.

    3. Use a Third-Party Data Recovery Tool

    If the above methods didn’t work, you can try using third-party data recovery tools specifically designed for iPhone.

    These tools can scan your device or iTunes backups to recover deleted photos. Some popular options include Dr.Fone, iMobie PhoneRescue, and Tenorshare UltData. Make sure to choose a reputable tool from a trusted source and carefully follow their instructions for recovering deleted photos.

    Note: It’s important to stop using your iPhone immediately after realizing that you have deleted photos. Continued usage might overwrite the deleted data, making it difficult or impossible to recover.

    In conclusion, losing precious pictures can be distressing, but with the right steps, you have a good chance of recovering them. Start by checking the “Recently Deleted” album, restore from an iCloud backup if available, and finally, consider using third-party data recovery tools as a last resort. Remember to always have a backup of your important data to avoid such situations in the future.
