Restore photos from the iPhone

You just need to follow these steps, but there’s an important caveat that I’ll explain later:

Step 1: Go to the photo app for the iPhone and click on the album on the bottom toolbar.

Step 2: Scroll down the list and then click on the latest deletion. As the name implies, you can find albums of recently deleted photos and videos here.

Step 3: If you find the lost image, just click on a single photo, then choose to restore it to add back to the album, or if you want to delete it permanently, choose to delete it.

Warning: Recent deletions show only photos and videos from the past 30 days. After that, the file will be permanently deleted.

Tips 3: Free to Recover iPhone Messages

Users of the iPhone can download third-party software, etc. But before using these third-party applications, you can try another way to retrieve deleted text.

This method is invalid if you disable the synchronization option in iTunes. If you have enabled the synchronization option, you may recover lost text messages, because as long as your device is connected to the system, the synchronization function creates a backup on your PC.

There are three steps to retrieve lost mail in iTunes:

Connect the iPhone to PC/Mac (which you often use) and open iTunes.

Now select the “Restore Backup” option in iTunes (after selecting the device).

The “Restore Backup” option replaces the current data of the device with backup data. This may take a few minutes, and the message you lost will eventually be displayed on your device. However, backing up data is possible only after deleting messages.


It’s always better to use backup applications on smartphones. Retrieving lost messages is not easy and usually unsuccessful. Many times deleted messages cannot be restored.

Police and intelligence agencies can retrieve information because they have experts to help them. Authorities can also request help from mobile phone operators because they can also access users’messages. However, operators only provide help to the authorities, not to customers.
