How to undelete pictures on the iPhone

We all use the camera on our mobile phones a lot of times, and now that smartphone storages are rising rapidly, the amount of data we now store has multiplied, as well

We all have accidentally deleted some important pictures by mistake, and losing precious memories in the form of photos forever just sounds terrible.


Storing an abundance of photos and videos is the fastest way to decrease your phone’s storage, so you need to know how to delete photos from your iPhone. But in case you do this by mistake, you also need to recover them.

Apple had introduced the ability to recover a deleted photo beginning with the iOS 8 update, which all iPads but the original can run. Even if you have an iPad 2, which can no longer run the latest version of the operating system, you should still be able to follow the steps given below.

  1. Head to the Photos application.
  2. Go to the folder that is for recently deleted photos.
  3. Tap on the Select button which can be found in the top-right corner.
  4. Choose the option that reads Recover All, or choose the individual photos that you wish to recover.

If you have not permanently deleted your photos from the Recently Deleted folder, then iOS will keep these photos in the folder for a maximum limit of 30 days.

If you cannot find pictures that you want to recover in the Recently Deleted folder either, your other option is to retrieve those pictures either from an iCloud or the iTunes backup.

You can also permanently delete any photo by tapping on the Delete button with a chosen photo. However, this decision cannot be undone, so only use it if you know you absolutely do not want the photo to be stored on your device.

Note that the iCloud Photo Library will upload a copy of your photos to the iCloud, which allows you to download the photo on another device, such as an iPhone. When you delete a photo from either your iPad or iPhone, it will also be deleted from the iCloud Photo Library.
