Have you ever accidentally deleted a video on your iPhone and desperately wanted to get it back? Don’t worry, there are several methods you can try to recover your deleted videos. In this article, we will explore different ways to retrieve deleted videos on your iPhone.

Method 1: Restore from Recently Deleted Album

If you recently deleted a video from your iPhone, the first place you should check is the “Recently Deleted” album in your Photos app. This folder keeps all the photos and videos you have deleted in the past 30 days.

To access the “Recently Deleted” album:

  1. Open the Photos app on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on the “Albums” tab at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Scroll down and locate the “Recently Deleted” album.
  4. Tap on it to open.

In this album, you will find all your recently deleted videos.

Simply select the ones you want to recover and tap on the “Recover” button. The videos will be restored to their original location in your Photos app.

Method 2: Restore from iCloud Backup

If you have enabled iCloud backup for your iPhone, there’s a good chance that your deleted videos are still available in one of your backups. Here’s how you can restore them:

  1. Go to Settings on your iPhone and tap on your name at the top of the screen.
  2. Select “iCloud” and then tap on “Manage Storage”.
  3. Tap on “Backups” and choose the backup that contains the deleted videos.
  4. In the backup details, make sure that the videos you want to recover are included.
  5. Tap on “Restore” and wait for the process to complete.

After the restore is finished, your deleted videos should be back on your iPhone. Keep in mind that this method will replace all the data on your iPhone with the data from the backup.

Method 3: Use a Third-party Data Recovery Tool

If the above methods didn’t work or you don’t have an iCloud backup, you can try using a third-party data recovery tool. There are several software options available that specialize in recovering deleted files from iPhones.

Here are some popular data recovery tools:

  • iMobie PhoneRescue: A comprehensive tool that can recover various types of files, including videos, from your iPhone.
  • Dr.Fone: Another powerful tool that supports video recovery and offers additional features like repairing iOS system issues.
  • iMyFone D-Back: This tool allows you to selectively recover videos from your iPhone without overwriting existing data.

To use these tools, you typically need to connect your iPhone to a computer and follow the instructions provided by the software. They will scan your device for deleted videos and give you options to recover them.

Tips to Prevent Video Loss in the Future

To avoid losing important videos in the future, consider implementing these tips:

  • Create regular backups: Regularly back up your iPhone using iCloud or iTunes to ensure that your videos are safely stored.
  • Enable “Optimize Storage”: In Settings > Photos, turn on “Optimize iPhone Storage” to automatically manage the storage space taken by your videos.
  • Be cautious when deleting: Double-check before deleting any videos to avoid accidental deletions.

By following these tips, you can minimize the risk of losing your precious videos and have peace of mind.

Recovering deleted videos on your iPhone is possible, whether through the “Recently Deleted” album, iCloud backup, or third-party data recovery tools. Remember to act quickly and avoid using your iPhone extensively after realizing the deletion to maximize the chances of successful recovery. Good luck!
