Answered by Robert Dupre

To recover permanently deleted photos on iPhone from iCloud, you can follow these steps:

1. Open your web browser and go to
2. Log in to your iCloud account using your Apple ID and password.
3. Once you’re logged in, click on the “Photos” app icon.
4. In the Photos app, you will see different albums and a “Recently Deleted” folder. Click on it.
5. The “Recently Deleted” folder contains photos that have been deleted within the last 30 days. Browse through the folder to find the photos you want to recover.
6. Select the photos you want to recover by clicking on them. You can select multiple photos by holding down the Command key (Mac) or the Ctrl key (Windows) while clicking on the photos.
7. After selecting the photos, click on the “Recover” button located at the top right corner of the screen.
8. A prompt will appear asking you to confirm the recovery. Click on “Recover” again to initiate the recovery process.
9. The selected photos will be restored and moved back to your main photo library. You can then access them on your iPhone through the Photos app.

It’s important to note that this method only works for photos that have been deleted within the last 30 days. If the photos have been permanently deleted beyond this time frame, they cannot be recovered from iCloud. Therefore, it’s crucial to act quickly if you accidentally delete important photos.

Additionally, ensure that you have enabled iCloud Photo Library on your iPhone before attempting to recover photos from iCloud. This feature syncs your photos across all your Apple devices and allows for easy backup and recovery.

In my personal experience, I have successfully recovered deleted photos from iCloud using this method. It’s a straightforward process that can save you from the panic of losing precious memories. However, it’s always a good practice to regularly back up your photos to avoid any potential loss.
