Q: "My son accidentally erased all the photos on my iPhone 5S this morning. Although I have made a backup of those photos to iCloud a few days ago, I have no idea how to get them back with the iCloud backup. Any suggestions?"
iCloud is a cloud storage and cloud computing service provided by Apple to allow users store data such as music, pictures, iOS applications, contacts, notes, calendars, etc on remote computer servers for download to multiple devices including iOS-based devices like iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. It replaces Apple's MobileMe service by acting as a data syncing center for email, contacts, calendars, bookmarks, notes, reminders, iWork documents, photos and other data. Besides, iCloud also allows users to wirelessly back up their iOS devices to iCloud instead of manually doing so using iTunes.
So if you ever backed up your iPhone photos to iCloud before losing the files, you can easily get the lost photos back from the iCloud backup with the assistance of iPhone Data Recovery, a smart data recovery software to help you selectively recover lost iPhone photos and other files, including videos, contacts, notes, calls, apps, etc from iCloud in 3 steps only.
