Every day, we create thousands of memories with the people we love. Sometimes, we decide to capture these memories forever with the aid of a smartphone’s camera, ensuring that these beautiful memories last forever. But what happens when we mistakenly delete these videos on our smartphone? Can we ever get these memories back?
In this article, we will look at a number of tips that can help you recover deleted videos from your iPhone. These tips are helpful for iPhones from the iPhone 11 Pro and below.
- Recover messages from iCloud/iTunes Backup: This method can come in handy when you maintain an iCloud or iTunes backup of your videos. It is also useful to recover deleted videos from your iPhone that were lost after an iOS update or due to a damaged iPhone.

- Go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase all Contents and Settings.
- Click Restore from iCloud backup on Apps and Data screen.
