For MAC users


Let us have a look at the first process that uses the recovery option on the iOS itself on your device:

  • Download and install the above mentioned software on your PC and then the next step is to connect your iPhone to your PC. You will get a user interface as shown below after you run the software:
  •  Now you are supposed to enter the DFU mode on your iPhone. In order to do so follow the procedure as follows:
  1.  Hold your iPhone and then click on the start option in the software.
  2. As soon as you click the start button, press and hold the ‘power’ and the ‘home’ buttons on your iPhone simultaneously for 10 seconds. The software will count the time for you itself.
  3. After 10 seconds have been cleared, you may release the ‘power’ button but keep pressing the ‘home’ button for another 10 seconds.
  4. After you have entered the DFU mode of your iPhone, the application will automatically start scanning your phone for the data.
  5.  After the application completes your scan, you will find all your data in various categories. In order to have your photos, select the photo stream or camera roll. This would display all the photos on your phone including those which have been deleted.
  6. You may slide the red marked area in the image below in order to preview only the deleted images form your phone.
  7.  Finally, select the desired images and click on the recover option and the deleted images will be saved on your computer.

Now let us have a look at the second procedure utilizing the iTunes backup:

  • When you launch the application, select the ‘recover from iTunes backup file’ option.
  •  If there are multiple backup files, select the latest iTunes backup file and then click on the start scan option.
  • After the scan will be completed, the backup files will again be displayed in various categories.
  • You should now check mark all those photos that you intend to back up no matter you transferred them to your device or clicked them from the device itself. Just select the desired pictures. You can also preview them individually before you select them. After you have selected the desired images, click the recover option.
  •  Now your images will be saved to your MAC and you may transfer them to your iPhone again very easily.

So now when you accidently delete your favorite images from your iPhone do not panic. You always have the option of recovering those images back safely and securely without any hassles.

Note: If you are using MAC then it is recommended that you utilize the second procedure and recover your images using the iTunes backup file as this procedure is safer and it does not interfere with your phone’s root iOS at all. Also this procedure is rather simple than the first one as you need not time your key presses and go into the DFU mode.

Hope that this post helps you in retrieving your deleted photos from your iPhone easily
