Using backup to recovered deleted iPhone 6 photos

In case you’ve used the helpful Backup feature on your iPhone 6 before these photos were deleted, then you will have a chance to restore them directly from the backup. But, what every iPhone 6 user should remember is that the current information on your iPhone will be replaced by the information stored in the backup. This means that you will most likely lose some data and you won’t be able to recover it again.

If you want to save that data, you will have to find another way like transferring some data on your computer or iTunes. To make sure that you will keep the data you need, you can check the content of your backup. This is something that you can’t do with the help of iCloud or iTunes, but there are a few useful third-party apps that can help you with that. Some of them have trials or free versions while others are paid apps. Now let’s see how you can complete this process.

Using iTunes backup

  2. After that, connect your iPhone to your computer with a cable. Select Recover from Backup. Next, choose the right arrow to proceed.
  3. The third step requires selecting the iTunes backup that you want to use. All categories are selected by default. However, since you want to bring back just your photos, uncheck Select All and select Photos. The program will start scanning for photos. Remember that in some cases, the backup is encrypted. If this is the case, you will have to enter a password to proceed.
  4. Once the scan is finished, you can preview and select the photos that you want to restore. Choose Recover to iDevice tab and they will be recovered to your iPhone 6 or computer. It’s up to you to select the final destination.
