As long as the data is not overwritten by new data, you can recover them. Well, new data randomly overwrites deleted data, so it's hard to say the time span. You can try to use the Advanced Mode to scan your iPhone 4. Before you click on the Start Scan button, you can see the Advanced Mode under the button.

Hello. I just deleted a photo from my iphone 4 and when I tried to recover them, I could access the ones I deleted from earlier today but not the one I deleted a few minutes ago. Is there a time span I have to wait? Also, the advanced option did not appear.
