How to Recover Lost Photos from iPhone on Mac

iPhone is getting more and more popular among people, as it has high quality and various functions. One of its most particular functions is taking photos. And due to iPhone is small and easy to bring with, many people like taking photos with iPhone instead of camera. So there may have plenty of precious photos in your iPhone. Once you lose them due to wrong deletion, reset or other problems, do you know how to retrieve them? Here I will introduce several ways to find lost photos back from iPhone.

Use iTunes

iTunes is familiar to every iPhone user, because you need iTunes to sync data between iPhone and computer. If you have a good habit to use iTunes to backup your iPhone with computer frequently, then you can find lost data easily with iTunes. But the disadvantage of using iTunes to recover data is that you may lose your current data. So you need to sync your current data with another computer before using iTunes.


Check iCloud Photo Stream

If you have an apple account and open the iCloud, then you will find Photo Stream in your iPhone. It is one special feature of iCloud service which will upload your photos to iCloud. When your iPhone is conneted to Internet, photo stream will automatically push photos to other user’s registered devices, like iPad, iPod, Mac computer or other iPhones. So once you lose your photos in your iPhone, just disconnect the Internet and check your Photo Stream in other apple devices.


Try professional data recovery software.

Though Apple provides users with iTunes and Photo Stream to find data back, there are still many people who do not like using iTunes to backup frequently. So when you lose you photos from iPhone, you have no iTunes backup and Photo Stream can not work, can you still recover you photos?
