Recover Christmas Memories: Videos and Photos
Apple is constantly coming up with new features and updates to improve the user experience. For photo and video management, iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users can take advantage of iCloud Photo Library. It uploads videos and photos on full resolution. Once in the cloud, files on your phone are replaced with smaller versions. That way, you save storage space. Any changes you make to your photos on any of your iOS devices reflect on iCloud. iCloud Photo Sharing also helps you share those files with your family and friends.
If you have turned on automatic syncing, all photos and videos are instantly uploaded whenever your device is connected to the internet. It comes free with 5GB storage, but you can expand that up to 2TB at a minimal cost.
If you have enabled syncing to iCloud Photo Library, that’s good news. However, do not connect your device to the internet. Doing so would delete the files from the cloud too.
Solution #1: Download backup on your device.
iOS 10.3 or later
Go to Settings > [Your Name] > iCloud > Photos > Turn off iCloud Photo Library
iOS 10.2 or earlier
Go to Settings > iCloud > Photos > Turn off iCloud Photo Library
Solution #2: Access your photos and videos online.
Although keeping a backup of your videos and photos on iCloud is great, you’re not 100% sure that you can get them back. It’s iCloud’s fantastic feature to upload files almost instantaneously. But it could be your bane as deletion is synced too. If you connected your device to the internet and you realized you lost your files too late, chances are they have been wiped out from Cloud.
Don’t fret. You have to try the next solution, the easiest and most effective yet.
