Recover lost or deleted contacts, messages, photos, notes, etc. from iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Under certain circumstances the deleted photos can be recovered. This is despite the fact that your iPod doesn't come with a recycle bin. If you had a backup of the photos, you can recover them if you restore from the iTunes or iCloud backup. If you don't have a backup of the photos, as long as you don't overwrite them, you can recover them using a good data recovery tool.
In order to avoid overwriting the photos, stop using the device as soon as you discover that the photos are missing. In fact you should refrain from using the device until you can recover the photos.
Like we mentioned before, you can recover your deleted photos in one of three ways. Let's look at all three of them.
In order to recover your lost photos via iTunes, you must have included them in a recent iTunes backup. If you had, then all you have to do is restore the backup and your photos will be recovered. Here's how to do it.
Step 1: Launch iTunes on your computer and then connect the iPod using USB cables. Select the iPod when it appears.
Step 2: Select "Restore Backup in iTunes" and then select the most relevant backup. Click "Restore" and wait for the process to finish.
Keep the device connected to the computer after it restarts and wait for it to sync with your computer.
You can also choose to recover the photos by restoring from an iCloud backup. Again this is only possible if you had backed up the device via iCloud. Here's how to do it.
Step 1: To restore from an iCloud backup, you first of all need to erase all the data on you device. To do this go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents. You may need to enter your passcode to complete the process.
Step 2: Once all the data has been erased, your device will go back to the Set up Screen. Follow the on-screen prompts until you get to the Apps & Data Screen and then tap "Restore from iCloud Backup."
Step 3: You may be requested to sign in with your Apple ID. Wait for the backup to complete and your lost photos should be restored on your device.
The best data recovery tool to use in this situation is dr.fone - iPhone Data Recovery. This program, provides you with three easy ways to recover data from your iOS device. Some of the features that make it the best include;
