“I deleted my pictures taken with my iPhone 4 camera accidentally and now I badly need them back. How can I recover deleted pictures from iPhone? Is there a recycle bin or equivalent on the iPhone so that I can recover them?”
The iPhone picture loss is very common nowadays. What disturbs us is that there is no Trash bin on iPhone to recover deleted pictures from. Your options are:
1. Recover deleted pictures by extracting iTunes backup
If you accidently delete photos on your iPhone, backup in iTunes may be a helpful thing for you. That should at least bring back all the pictures you had up until the time that backup took place.
2. Recover deleted pictures directly from iPhone
When selecting “Delete photos” in iPhone Camera Roll, a big red “Delete Photo” button is provided along with Cancel, selecting “Delete Photos” means deleted. But you may not know is that as long as no new data written into the iPhone, the data deleted still exist on your iPhone but they become invisible. To prevent new data overwriting lost data, you’d better not continue operating your iPhone again once you deleted the data on your iPhone by accident.
With this idea, there are chances for you to recover deleted pictures from iPhone unhurriedly. What you need is only the powerful iPhone picture recovery software, say Leawo iOS Data Recovery.
