Many people have been experiencing accidental deletion of Safari browser on iPhone. Also, many non-tech and newbies are finding it difficult to resolve this problem. After a lot of requests from our users, we have come up with this step-by-step guide to recover accidentally deleted Safari from iPhone. So, let’s not waste any more of your time and get straight to the point.

What Should Do after Accidentally Deleted Safari from iPhone

It is recommended to stop using the iPhone after the accidental deletion of Safari. Using iPhone will overwrite the deleted data and you will not be able to recover it afterward.

Reason: When a certain data is deleted from the iPhone, the storage space still holds onto that data for some time. The storage space allocated to the deleted data is limited and in case you delete some more data, cache, or browsing history, the deleted data will be overwritten. In such cases, it becomes difficult yet impossible to retrieve the lost data.  

Is it possible to Get Accidentally Deleted Safari on iPhone?

Yes, one can recover the accidentally deleted files on iPhone using the official iPhone backups or using a third-party data recovery software. You can recover the files using

  • iCloud Backups
  • iTunes Backups
  • Or a third-party data recovery software for iPhone

If you have just lost a few files or files from a certain application, it is recommended to go for data recovery software. This is because data recovery software provides more access to the deleted files and let you recover the required files only. On the other hand, you must restore the whole backups from iTunes and iCloud official way - including the ones that you do not want.
