My iPhone fell into water and I'm not sure whether it can be fixed! I really want to recover my photos via iCloud. How can I get them?
Relax. The first thing you should do is try to fix the water-damaged iPhone. And your iPhone, iPad or iPod photos will not disappear so easily. You can follow the solutions below to retrieve pictures from iCloud backup.
Even if you failed to rescue iPhone from water damage, or your iPad is broken for other reasons, you still manage to restore all your photos as long as you've backed up with iCloud. As your device is not available, you cannot restore data to iPhone, iPad or iPod. However, you can download all photos in iCloud backup to your local computer. Here's how:
The iCloud backup can be restored whole to your device in iOS 10/9/8. You can't restore parts of it - it's all or nothing.
While, you might wonder if your photos in iCloud are safe as iCloud has leaked nude photos of celebrities recently. Maybe you should learn how to secure iCloud account and data before it's all too late to save your privacy.
