Deleted a photo on your iPhone or iPad and don’t know what to do to recover it? Don’t worry, iOS saves deleted photos on iPhone and iPad for up to 30 days. Furthermore, if you have a backup on iCloud or another cloud, such as Google Photos, everything becomes easier. Find out how to recover permanently deleted photos from iPhone (and iPad) with one of these two options below. It also works with videos on phones.

  5. Select the photos to be recovered and tap Recover in the bottom right corner;
  6. Ready! The photos will be back in your gallery.

Another option is to recover from an existing backup, whether from iTunes or iCloud:

  1. Log in with your Apple ID on the icloud.com website;
  2. Click on Photos or go directly to icloud.com/#photos;
  3. Wait for your photos to load;
  4. Download the photos you need to recover.

The photos will be saved on your computer and you can later transfer them back to your phone if necessary. If you prefer, you can also restore your phone from scratch from an iCloud backup.

3. Recover Permanently Deleted Photos from iPhone via Software

Another solution, the most laborious, is to use separate software to recover permanently deleted photos from the iPhone — those that no longer appear in the backup or in the “Deleted” items folder in the gallery. The recommendation here is EraseUS Mobi Saver, which will scan the iPhone’s disk to find deleted items. There are versions for Windows and macOS.

  • After downloading and installing EraseUS Mobi Saver, connect the iPhone via cable to the computer and open the program;
  • Click on the “Recover from iOS Device” tab;
  • When your iPhone appears in the list, click “Scan”;
  • Wait for the storage scanning process;
  • Then select the items you want to save and click “Recover”;
  • Choose the location to save the file on your computer.

It is important to remember that these file recovery software have some limitations. They don’t perform miracles. If the photo was deleted a long time ago, the chances of recovery are even lower because the space used by that image can already be replaced by new photos.
