Here, The great news is that even if you delete some (or all) of your photos by accident, there are several ways to recover them. We’ll go over those methods, as well as some precautions you can take to keep your photos safe.
Solution – How To Recover Deleted Photos From iPhone
In the Photos app, Apple includes a “recently deleted” photo folder, which is essentially the same as your computer’s Recycle Bin. For the next 30 days, it stores all deleted photos.
A recently deleted photo is permanently deleted on day 31, but it is easy to recover until then. Here’s how to go about it:
1- Open the Photos app.
2- Scroll down the list of Other Albums and tap “Recently Deleted.”
3- Tap “Select” in the upper-right corner of the screen.
4- Choose each photo you want to return to your iPhone.
5- Tap “Recover” in the lower-right corner.
Tap “Recover All” instead if you want to recover all of the photos in your deleted folder.
Solution – How To Recover Deleted Photos Through An iCloud Backup
If your photos have already been deleted from the Recently Deleted folder, you may be able to recover them by restoring your phone from a previous backup.
Well, The downside is that all of your deleted files — apps, data, text messages, and so on — will be recovered from iCloud Drive using an older backup, which you may not want to do. However, if the backup you want to restore is relatively recent, it may be worthwhile.

3- Once the restore is finished, check the Photos app to see if the photos you lost were recovered. Well, If not, you can repeat the process and restore an older backup, or you can go back to the most recent backup.
If the older backup contains the photos you’re looking for, but you don’t like the rest of the older version, you can email the photos to yourself or upload them to an external cloud service (Dropbox, Google Drive, etc.), and then restore your phone to its later version.
