I will now, explain each method mentioned above in a detailed manner. Again, I would remind you to follow the methods in order if your photos are not deleted permanently.

Method 1: Recover from ” Recently Deleted Photos” Album

When you have deleted the photos mistakenly and you don’t have those photos in Camera roll, the first thing we need to do is to look for an album named “Recently Deleted Photos” in the “Photos” app. If your photos have not been deleted from the “Recently Deleted Photos”, then you will see your deleted photos in this album. Now, you can select the photos you want to recover and click on Recover to get your photos back in the camera roll.










Method 2: Restore from iTunes backup.

When your photos are deleted permanently, you will not find the photos in the Recently Deleted folder. We need to restore the backup from iTunes to your iPhone.

For this reason, we recommend copying important information from your iPhone to computer before restoring the backup. You can copy photos, messages, music and more from your iPhone to computer using iTunes, iCloud or via USB.

Let’s see how we can restore an iPhone backup to iPhone using iTunes:

  1. Connect your iPhone to your computer using the USB cable.
  2. Launch iTunes if it doesn’t open automatically.
  3. Click your device icon when it appears in iTunes.
  4. Hit ‘Restore Backup…’
  5. Choose the backup that you want to restore, and click ‘Restore’.
  6. Keep your device connected until the entire process is complete. Your device will restart and then sync.

Method 3 : Restore from iCloud backup.

If you backup your iPhone daily to iCloud, you can restore your iPhone from an iCloud backup to recover your photos. But, restoring a backup means that the existing content of your device  will be overwritten with the content stored in the backup. if you want to  restore from iCloud, you need to erase the current content of your iPhone before you can restore from an iCloud backup.

For this reason, we recommend copying important information from your iPhone to computer before restoring the backup. You can copy photos, messages, music and more from your iPhone to computer using iTunes, iCloud or via USB.

Let’s continue on how we can restore a backup to iPhone using iCloud:

Before we start,  we need to double-check that you have an iCloud backup to restore to your iPhone. You can find steps on how to do this on your iPhone, depending on your iOS, on Apple’s support page.

  1. Erase your device (Tap Settings > General > Reset > Erase all content and settings).

  3. Follow the onscreen setup steps until you reach the Apps & Data screen, then tap Restore from iCloud Backup.
  4. Using your existing Apple ID, sign in to iCloud.
  5. Tap the backup that you want to restore, and the restore process will start.

If you don’t find it in the Recently Deleted folder either, your other option might be to recover deleted photos from iPhone backup. In this case, you’d have to retrieve those pictures either from an iCloud or iTunes backup. However, this method also has its problems. In order to recover photos from backup, you’ll have to overwrite your current data by restoring the complete backup. Alternatively, it’s also possible that you don’t have a backup at all. If you don’t have backup, fear not, this method will help you recover your deleted photos.
