Since iPhone came out, it is the best and most popular phone for photographing, and taking pictures is an overwhelming trend for the worldwide iPhone users. We use iPhone to record almost every detail of our daily life. And while we take pictures day by day.

That could be painful, when we delete pictures accidently or lost some important without any reason sometimes. So here we offer 3 methods to recover deleted photos on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6 series without backup or from backup.

1 Check Your “Recently Deleted” to Find Pictures

Sometimes, we delete pictures without thinking for we just don't like to keep so many pictures in our iPhone 6S/6S Plus/6/6 Plus. So your first step should be to check the “Recently Deleted” album to confirm whether the deleted pictures are there. This method works for those iPhone 6 users who don't clean their “Recently Deleted” album often.

Go to Photos > Recently Deleted, tap on the picture you need, then click “Recover” in the lower right corner to get it back to other albums. Or you can select multiple pictures to recover by clicking “Select”, then tap on more than one picture, then click “Recover” and the selected ones are back.

 Restore Deleted Photos from iTunes

This is fast and easy to operate. But what’s a shame that iTunes cannot recover backups selectively, which means you have to recover all the backup data, even what you need is only some deleted pictures! Besides, the backup files you recover will overwrite the existing data on your iphone.
