How To Recover Deleted Pictures From iPhone And Android

At some point or another, all of us have accidentally deleted photos from our mobiles only to realize once it's too late. This can be very upsetting, especially if the photos were not saved on the computer or an external hard drive.

But fear not! In this oneHOWTO article we’ll be discussing how to recover deleted pictures from iPhone and Android.

Steps to follow:

Actually, if you have an iPhone, you have nothing to worry about because your phone stores everything you've deleted in the past 30 days. To recover deleted pictures from iPhone, go to the albums in your photo gallery and click the button in the lower right corner to change the view to albums (in general). A series of folders will appear, including one called "Recently Deleted".

Once you've found your deleted photo, press the button in the lower right corner to restore it. The alert signal displayed on some photos means they will be permanently deleted within 72 hours, so make sure to restore them if you don't want to lose them forever.


One of the best apps for your smartphone is Dumpster. This app is no big mystery; it works the same way as the recycle bin on your computer. Everything you delete on your phone goes in the bin and you can restore your photos, videos, songs, etc.


Dumpster is a preventive tool, this means that it won't help if you've already deleted your photos before installing it. In this case you can try DiskDigger, an app for both iOS and Android. This application recovers files from storage units, either from the phone's memory or a microSD memory card.

There's both a free and a premium version, but in both cases, it is necessary to root your device. Hexamob Recovery is a similar application, with the difference that it allows you to recover photos even after formatting your device.


If the picture you accidentally deleted was shared on WhatsApp or Telegram, getting it back is a piece of cake! If you shared it on WhatsApp, open the folder /WhatsApp /Mobile Media to view all the images you've shared, even if they've been deleted.

If you use Telegram, go to the app settings and activate the feature for saving downloaded pictures in the Photo Gallery.


Last but not least, you can use Dr Fone for Android and Dr Fone for iOS. This program can be downloaded onto your PC.

Simply connect your mobile device to your computer with a USB cable and follow the instruction given by the app. It may take up to 2 hours for all your pictures to be recovered. Once the picture recovery process it's finished, all you have to do is select the ones you want to recover and they'll be saved directly onto your computer.
