My IPhone was never backed up and ICloud didn't have access to my photos. I tried passing my pictures to a USB and by mistake I pressed the RESTORE button on the computer! I really need my photos back! Is there any way I can recover them?!
disqus_K95Ejrv1eo
In this way, you need to try it from the backup files. Please use Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS to check all your iTunes and iCloud backup files.

I had to have my phone restored to factory settings and all of my photos were deleted. My deleted folder is empty, can this restore any photos from my phone?
disqus_K95Ejrv1eo
In this instance, what you can do is to connect the iPhone to the computer it trusted before. It probably won't require for screen password to access the data on the phone. If it still requires passcode, I'm afraid there is no way around. Can you recall whether you have data backed up using iTunes before? If yes, you can try again Recover from iTunes backup file mode. It won't require access to a phone.

Hi, does this software allow me to recover data or pictures from iPhone with passcode. Also don't want to restore to factory settings as we dont have the icloud password either
disqus_K95Ejrv1eo
To be honest the current version of Dr. Fone for iOS is not capable of recovering data directly from a device with broken screen. While connecting iPhone to the program, you need to enter screen passcode to proceed with the Trust computer process. A passcode is necessary and you cannot skip it. If you forget the passcode, you can’t proceed the trust process. What you can do is to connect the iPhone to the computer it connected before, It probably won't require for screen password to access the data within.

is there anyway u can do this if the screen is broke also and is just black. i'm desperate!! :(

May I know which recovery mode did you use in the Dr. Fone for iOS? Actually Dr. Fone for iOS is not capable of recovering deleted photos directly from the iPhone 4S/5/5S/5C/6/6P. If you were using the recover from iCloud backup file mode, the size difference could be that the iCloud backup file contains information relating to purchase history, device settings and other app data which we do not copy when downloading your backup file to our software.
