How to Undelete iPod touch Photos

Wiped lots of photos on iPod touch! How to undelete them?

Last weekend, my daughter took lots of photos with her brand new iPod touch 4. Today, she plans to export them and upload to her blog. Unfortunately, she wiped all of them by a mistaken operation. She failed to sync her iPod touch with iTunes and there is no backup for her photos. Is there any chance that she can undelete them? Please help her.

Without iTunes backup, the only way to undelete iPod touch photos is to scan and recover from your iPod touch itself. Technically, the deleted photos won’t disappear immediately after you delete them, unless they have been overwritten by new data. Therefore, you still can undelete them ASAP. Just protect your device from being overwritten.

To undelete photos on your iPod touch, you need to get a third-party tool, which can help you a lot: Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac iPhone Data Recovery) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Windows iPhone Data Recovery). You can use them to directly scan and undelete photos on iPod touch 4. For iPod touch 5, you need to have an iTunes backup.
