Most iPhone users utilize their phone camera nearly every day to record memorable moments, storing an abundance of photos and videos in the iPhone Camera Roll.

What’s worse, many other operations also can lead to iPhone photos disappearing, such as jailbreak, failed iOS 15 update, etc.

But there’s no need to panic. If you’re troubled by iPhone photo loss and seeking ways to recover deleted photos and videos from your iPhone, here is the right place. Below are two options for retrieving deleted photos/videos on iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max, iPhone 12/11/XS/XR/X/8/8 Plus, iPhone 7/7 Plus/6s/6s Plus/SE/6, iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad mini, etc.

Recently Deleted only keeps deleted photos for 30 days. Once it gets the deadline, they will be removed from the Recently Deleted album automatically. And this feature only applies when you deleted a single or small number of photos. If you get the entire Camera Roll lost by restoring the iDevice, this might not help.
