How Can I Recover Pictures From An iCloud Backup?

If the pictures are already deleted from “Recently Deleted,” then you might be able to bring them back by restoring your device to a backup.

The sad thing about this method is that you will have to replace every other content on your device applications, data, SMSes e.t.c with an ancient backup, and this is not what everybody likes to do. If the backup you intend to restore is quite recent, however, it is not a bad idea.

If you use iCloud to back up your device, adhere to these instructions.

  1. Ensure your device is backed up so that if anything goes wrong, or if you do not fancy the content of the older backup, you will be able to return to your present configuration.
  2. After backup is wrapped up, perform a factory reset, and then bring back the device to a backup that is old enough to add the images that you have lost.
  3. When restore is finished, confirm in the Photos application to know if you got back the pictures you lost. If you did not, simply go over the process again and restore an older backup, or get back to the latest backup.
  4. If the older backup possesses the images you are searching for, but you do not fancy the rest of the older version, you can attempt to email the images to yourself or get them uploaded to an external cloud service like Google Drive, Dropbox and so on and then get your device back to its later version.
