Hi I had some problems with my iPhone and it was restored, through iCloud I was able to recover half of the photos and videos I had ... but can I recover the other half somehow ??? Help thanks
but if the iphone has a black screen, and therefore you cannot interact on the display, is it possible to proceed anyway? Because by connecting the device to the PC, the phone should ask for authorization in order to be "read".
I should recover photos but I've never backed up - haimé -
If the phone has never been "authorized" on that PC then it is impossible to recover those photos ...
