How do you access your photos on iCloud from your iPhone after you have backed it up on iCloud and deleted it from your phone? One way I figured was to use the desktop site on iPhone and then access the pictures on iCloud. But am sure there has to be a smarter way. Please help!
That’s actually a pretty common question on the apple forum. According to the tradition method, you would need to restore your phone from your backup in order to recover any photos in it. However this will erase all the existing data and settings on your device. What if you don’t want them all on your phone but do want to view a couple? If you’ve looked up all possible solutions but to no avail, there’s a professional iOS backup extractor call iFonebox can certainly show you all the recoverable data and recover iCloud photos easily.
With three powerful recovery modes, you’re able to gain access to the iCloud/iTunes backup file and view or export data from that backup. iFonebox can be used to download up to 17 kinds of data like contacts, videos, voice memos, calendar events, reminders, safari history, call logs, QQ messages, WeChat data, WhatsApp data, etc. The following are some of the other features:
- It is easy to use and highly reliable
- The preview function can show you all the recoverable data
- You can selectively regain images from iCloud with ease instead of restoring the whole backup file
- This will not wipe out the current data on your device
