Can I recover permanently deleted photos from my iPhone? Looking for the solution to restore deleted photos from iPhone? In the following guide, we will show how to recover deleted photos from iPhone easily and effectively.

iPhones have been making rounds in the smartphone arena because of its user-friendly UI, and its smooth performance. There are so many good points that make the iPhone marketable, making it one of the most beloved smartphone brands in the world. This does not mean, however, that the iPhone isn’t prone to data loss like its other counterpart Android does. Photos and videos on the iPhone are also subject to deletion, and it’s a modern tragedy when it happens.

Part 1: Overview of Deleted or Lost Videos on the iPhone

  • 1. Software upgrade failure. Regular iOS updates are pushed to iPhones automatically, but situations like power loss, cable disconnection, or network malfunction may cause the upgrade to fail. This will in turn cause potential data corruption.
  • 2. Hardware malfunction. iPhones subject to water damage, overheating or power surge will suffer from hardware damage, which then gives rise to inaccessible data.
  • 3. Human error. This is the most common cause of video deletion—accidentally removing videos from the gallery due to a mistaken click. Moreover, deleting the backup on iTunes can also cause loss of the data previously stored for safekeeping.
  • 4. Factory reset. A hard reset to the factory settings wipes out all the data stored on the iPhone. The factory reset may cause permanent deletion of data.
  • 5. Stolen iPhone. Losing your phone from theft is frustrating, and so does losing the data stored in it. There is still a way to access these data even without access to the device.

Part 2: How to Recover Videos from iPhone Recently Deleted Album

  • 1. Open your iPhone’s gallery and scroll through the albums. Locate Recently Deleted album at the bottom of the page.
  • 2. Select the video by clicking on it and press Recover found at the bottom right.
  • 3. You can also select multiple files by clicking Select on the upper right of the screen and then selecting the videos to be recovered, and click Recover.
  • 4. You may also select Recover All to restore all deleted media.
  • 5. You will now find all the media restored on the iPhone’s gallery.

Part 3: How to Recover Videos from iPhone Backup

i. Through the iCloud Backup

Before checking the backup, you must first enable iCloud backup. For new iPhone users, the phone prompts you to set this up before the device can be used.

  • On your iPhone, go to the Settings and then click on your account (your name that appears at the top of the settings page).
  • Select iCloud, then Manage Storage, and then Backups.
  • A list of devices that you have enrolled in the iCloud backup will appear. Select on a specific device to determine the size and date of the latest backup.
  • Go back to the Settings screen, select General> Reset> Erase All Content and Settings.
  • Tap on Restore from iCloud Backup on the Apps & Data page, and then sign in to your iCloud.
  • Select Choose backup and tap the specific backup you want to restore on your iPhone.

ii. Recover Deleted Videos from iTunes

  • Download and install iTunes on any computer if you still don’t have it.
  • Launch the iTunes program and plug in your Apple device using the USB port.
  • You will see an icon of your device connected to iTunes. Click on this icon found at the upper left pane.
  • Find Manually Back Up and Restore and then click on Restore Backup on the right-side panel of the window.
  • Note the Latest Backup detail which shows the date and size of the last saved backup by iTunes.
  • The iPhone screen will show a screen that says Restore in Progress. This will also be indicated in the iTunes app, located on the upper-middle portion of the window. This will show a progress bar of the restoration.
  • After the task is done, the device will restart. Wait for it to complete and prompt before removing the device to avoid permanent deletion or loss.

With Recoverit, you can choose any folder you want to regain lost videos by merely selecting the path of the folder separately under the “Folder” option.

Step 2 Scan the Location

The next phase of the operation is allowing Recoverit to scan the entire location(folder or drive), which generally takes a few moments to finish. However, if the deleted data is astronomical, it may take longer to complete the search. You have the ultimate power to stop/pause your recovery scan to check the already recovered items and halt the operation entirely, upon achieving complete satisfaction.

Scan the Location

The new update also allows you to pinpoint or filter the search results to sideline the unneeded files and narrow the selection process to recovered videos.

Step 3 Preview and Recover Files

After previewing the video files and checking whether they are in full form or not, select the ones that you wish to use again, and hit the “Recover” button. Save them wherever you intend to store and view the videos and close the interface.
