It is such a sinking feeling when your memories are lost.

What is Dr.Fone - Data Recovery?

Dr.Fone - Data Recovery (iOS) provides you with three ways to recover deleted photos on iPhone:

  1. Retrieve photos directly from iPhone,
  2. Recover your pictures from iTunes backup
  3. Retrieve your photographs from iCloud backup.

Other important things you should know:

1. If you need to recover important files directly from your iPhone, don't use your iPhone before you get these files back in case of any data overwritten. If the deleted data has been overwritten, there is no way to recover them from your iPhone.

2. If you need to recover deleted photos from iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, which is running iOS 15 or later, we might give you very good news. The first thing you should do is tap the 'Photos' app, go to the 'Recently Deleted' folder, and check whether the lost photos are there. If your precious memories are there, you can get deleted photos back on your iPhone, which you thought were lost. If the photos are not there, read on!
