Is it possible to retrieve wechat photos if deleted from iPhone album? When wechat photos are expired from WeChat app, if you have saved them to your local album on iPhone before, you still have the chance to retrieve those wechat photos. But if you deleted them from iPhone album, can you still recover iPhone wechat photos?
Definitely yes. You can restore lost wechat photos from iTunes or iCloud backup. Bear in mind that when restoring from iPhone backup directly, you will reset your iPhone firstly and erase all data from it. Then restore the whole iTunes or iCloud backup data to iPhone, which means you will lose new added data on iPhone. Thus, I will show you how to recover deleted wechat photos from iPhone backup selectively.
