How to Recover Deleted Photos, Camera Roll from iPad Air/mini 2/4/3/mini/2/1?

We would like to specify these methods on how to recover lost photos from iPad into 3 parts and you can pick up one of them according to your need.

Part 1: Directly recover photos from iPad without backup

iPad models have 16, 31, 64 and 128 GB of internal flash memory to provide spaces for your data. When you deleted photos, they are invisible but still hide in spaces until the spaces are reused to store new files. You can not directly get the deleted iPad photos by yourself of course, but you can recover deleted photos from iPad with an iPad photos recovery tool - iPad Data Recovery. It can help you directly optionally view and selectively recover iPad camera roll in Windows system computer when you have no backup files.

Tips to Backup iPad Photos:

It is strongly recommended for you to backup your iPad photos in case that you may lose your loved photos forever. Here is how:

  • 1. Use iTunes: Sync with iTunes or control-click (right-click) iPad in Devices and choose "Back Up".
  • 2. Use iCloud: Select "iCloud" in Settings of your iPad and choose "Storage and Backup".
  • 3. Use iPad Data Recovery: make iPad Data Recovery to scan and preview your iPad, and then selectively transfer your wanted photos to computer.

Part 2: Restore iPad photos from iTunes backup

If you have used iTunes to backup iPad 4/3/mini/2/1, you can sync your devices with iTunes and recover the lost photos. However, your current and new data on iPad would be lost. Furthermore, iTunes would not allow you to preview and selectively restore photos from iPad. Yet, with Tenorshare iPad Data Recovery, you can easily and quickly retrieve deleted photos from iPad by extracting detailed files in iTunes backup.

  • 1. Run iPad Data Recovery and select "Recover Data from iTunes Backup File". Select your backup file and click "Start Scan".

Part 3: Restore deleted iPad photos from iClond backup

If you have used iCloud to backup iPad photos, you would be prompted by the Setup Assistant to retrieve deleted iPad photos from iCloud backup. But there would be wireless vulnerabilities, virus infections, data theft, etc. Moreover, just like syncing iPad with iTunes to retrieve deleted pictures from iPad, your current data and settings would be overwritten. However, retrieving iPad photos from iCloud with iPad Data Recovery won't delete your device data and have no damage. And it is much easier.

Select "Recover Data from iCloud Backup File", sign in your iCloud and you can start to recover lost pictures from iCloud backup. No personal information will be leaked out.
