The Best Way to Recover Deleted Photos in iOS 8

If you have updated your iPhone to the latest iOS 8 beta version, you may have found two new options in the Photos program, "Recently Added" and "Recently Deleted". The former option seems less helpful than the latter one, because the "Recently Deleted" option can help you get back your photo which has been deleted or lost recently.

The judgment to this change is mixed. On one hand, it provides convenience recovering lost photo. But you can only recover deleted photos in the last 30 days. And if you don't think you will do any wrong deletion which means this is useless to you, you cannot turn it off in settings options. To some extent, this album will take up some space on your iPhone, iPad or other iDevices.

iPhoto is the another tool on Mac to help you store your iPhone photos. If you have backed up photos on iPhone to iPhoto on Mac, just try to recover images from iPhoto.

If not, just move the next method to get back the deleted photos on iPhone.
