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

There are ways to recover them. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of recovering deleted videos from your iPhone. Follow the steps below to retrieve those cherished memories.

Step 1: Check Recently Deleted Folder

If you’ve recently deleted the videos, they might still be in your iPhone’s “Recently Deleted” folder. This folder acts as a safety net, holding onto deleted media for a limited time before permanently removing them.

To check the “Recently Deleted” folder:

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

Step 2: Recover Videos from Recently Deleted Folder

If you find your deleted videos in the “Recently Deleted” folder, follow these steps to recover them:

  1. Select the video(s) you want to recover by tapping on them. You can select multiple videos at once.
  2. Tap on the “Recover” button located at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
  3. The selected videos will be restored to their original location in your Photos app.

Step 3: Restore from iCloud Backup

If you haven’t found your deleted videos in the “Recently Deleted” folder, there’s another way to restore them if you have an iCloud backup available:

Option 1: Restore Entire Backup

If you want to restore your entire iPhone from an iCloud backup and not just the videos, follow these steps:

  1. Go to “Settings” on your iPhone.
  2. Tap on your name at the top of the Settings menu.
  3. Select “iCloud” and then “iCloud Backup”.
  4. Make sure you have a recent backup available and tap on “Restore from iCloud Backup”.
  5. Choose the backup that contains your deleted videos and wait for the restoration process to complete.

Option 2: Restore Only Photos & Videos

If you don’t want to restore your entire iPhone and only need to recover the deleted videos, follow these steps:

  1. Download and install an iCloud backup extractor tool on your computer.
  2. Launch the tool and sign in with your iCloud credentials.
  3. Select the relevant backup file containing your deleted videos.
  4. Browse through the backup file and locate the deleted videos you want to recover.
  5. Select the videos and click on “Recover” or a similar option provided by the tool.

Step 4: Use Third-Party Data Recovery Software

If none of the above methods work, don’t lose hope! There are third-party data recovery software options available that can help you recover deleted videos from your iPhone. These tools work by scanning your device’s storage for traces of deleted files.

Note of Caution:

It is important to be cautious when using third-party software. Only use reputable software from trusted sources to protect sensitive information on your device.

Once you’ve found a reputable software, follow their instructions to recover your deleted videos. The steps may vary depending on the software you choose, so make sure to read their documentation carefully.

Remember, the chances of successful recovery decrease with time, so it’s important to act quickly if you want to retrieve your deleted videos.

We hope this tutorial has helped you recover your precious videos from your iPhone. Remember to regularly back up your device to prevent data loss in the future. Happy video recovery!
