The phone would not let me press on the screen to access it. It’s broken because it fell out of my pocket onto concrete. I could not however retrieve my old photos from the old phone. Is there a way to retrieve them? Thank you!
Losing precious photos can be an annoying and heartbreaking thing. You may not be used to backing up your phone via iTunes. However, iCloud automatically backs up your iOS device information daily over Wi-Fi when your device is turned on, locked, and connected to a power source. But a fully restoration is all or nothing including everything in the backup. If you just need to recover photos from the screen broken iPhone, you should get a program for your computer such as backup extractor, locate and copy the photos from your backup. Fortunately, iFonebox is such a program.
