[iPhone Photo Recovery]How to Recover Deleted Photos from iPhone

Updated on November 24, 2016

What do you do when you lose photos on your iPhone? Many iPhone users may cling to the iTunes backup and hope to get back those deleted photos they strongly desire. However, restoring from backup means that you have to replace the whole data on your device with the backup and sacrifice the data you haven't backed up yet. Let's take a look at some possible methods to retrieve deleted photos on iPhone without causing data loss.

1. Recover deleted photos from Photos app

iOS 8 and later version features a 'Recycle Bin" which allows you to store recently deleted Photos for 30 days. If your iPhone runs iOS 8 or up, you can recover deleted photos right on your iPhone.

  • Open Photos app and tap "Albums".
  • Locate the "Recently Deleted" folder, tap on it.
  • You will see your recently deleted photos listed, select the photos you want and tap on "Recover" on the lower right corner.

2. Restore Photos from iCloud

Go to "Settings" > "iCloud" to make sure if Photos is toggled on. If you have enabled Photo Sync with iCloud, you can restore deleted photos via iCloud easily. Visit and click "Photos" to check if your deleted Photos are still in the Photos Library. If yes, select the photos you want to recover and click on "Download."

3. Retrieve deleted photos with a third party tool

Making use of a third party tool is the last and only option left if the above method fails. Jihosoft iPhone Data Recovery provides two modes to recover deleted Photos: Recover photos directly from your iPhone or extract photos from your iTunes backup. It supports preview as well as selective recovery.

  • Launch the Photo Recovery and connect your iPhone to computer.
  • Click "Next" to scan and analyze photos on your iPhone.
  • Preview & recover the deleted photos on iPhone.

Note: If you have an iTunes backup, you can also click "Next" to extract photos from the backup after launching the program.
