Photos & Albums

Don’t be panic if you found your photos and videos are missing after updating to iOS 10 or restoring your iPhone from iCloud backup. As in iOS 8.1 or later, with iCloud Photo Library option enabled, your photos and videos are stored in iCloud.

How iCloud Photo Library Works

iCloud Photo Library automatically and simultaneously keeps your photos and videos synchronized between multiple of your devices. Your photo/video collection uploads / downloads to/from iCloud each time your device connects to WiFi and your battery is charged. And the speed depends largely on your Internet speed.


iCloud backup covers your messages, like the iMessage, SMS, MMS and the pictures/videos attachments, which will be downloaded to your iPhone during the restoration process. If you look for some message threads that are missing after restoring from iCloud backup, it’s probably caused by the mistakenly deletion before your iPhone backed up to iCloud. Try the following commercial software to retrieve your deleted messages from iPhone.

How Does PhoneRescue Work

Why PhoneRescue can find and recover your lost or deleted messages from iCloud backup? Here is the myth: a deleted message file is usually not immediately overwritten on your iPhone disk, but more often has its entry deleted from the file system index. For example, you deleted a message on your iPhone, the data actually is still stored on the device, but you cannot see it through iPhone interface. If the iCloud afterward created a backup for your iPhone in this situation, the deletion of your message can be easily reversed.
