2How to Undelete Photos on iPhone

1Undelete Photos from Recently Deleted Album

The Photos app on iPhone has an album called Recently Deleted. Any photo you deleted gets moved to that album. Within the 30-days grace period, you can undelete those photos:

  • 3. Preview and select the photos that you wish to undelete and then tap on the Recover option shown on the bottom-right corner. Your selected photos will be restored to their original album.

If you have an iTunes backup of your device, then you can restore it to undelete your photos. However, keep in mind that restoring an iTunes backup will overwrite the current data stored on your iPhone. Follow these steps to undelete pictures:

  • 1. Connect your iPhone to your computer via USB cable.

  • 2. Launch iTunes and choose your iPhone from the Devices section.

  • 3. Click on the ‘Restore from Backup’ option, then choose the backup of your choice. The restoring process will begin.

If you have created an iCloud backup of your iPhone data, then you will be glad to know that you can restore it to undelete pictures. However, just like restoring iTunes backup, restoring iCloud backup will also erase the current data stored on your iPhone.

Here are the steps:

  • 1. Launch Settings app on your iPhone.

  • 2. Navigate to General > Reset and then select ‘Erase All Content and Settings’.

  • 3. Once your iPhone is reset and it restarts, follow the on-screen instructions and choose ‘Restore from iCloud Backup’ option on ‘App & Data’ screen.

3How to Undelete Pictures on Android Phone

If you have synced your photos to Google Photos via your Gmail account that is being used in your Android device, then undelete those photos is very easy. However, keep in mind that those photos must be stored on your Google account and shouldn’t be deleted from it. If you have deleted the photos from your Google account, then they will stay in trash for 60 days before getting permanently deleted.

Follow these instructions to undelete your photos via Google Photos app:

  • On your Android device, launch the Google Photos app.

  • Tap on the ‘Menu’ option and navigate to Trash folder.

  • In that folder, you will see the list of all your deleted photos. From that list, choose the photos that you wish to undelete and click on the small arrow button. The restoring process will begin and all your selected photos will be restored to their original location.
