Customer Question
My daughter, son and...

My daughter, son and I are on the same account and my daughter deleted all of my son's photos yesterday thinking they would only go off of her phone. There were like 800+ photos. We tried to look at recently deleted photos to restore them all, but when we clicked select all, the restore option disappeared and we can't get back to it. Help! How do we get my son's photos back.

Technician's Assistant: Are you working with a phone, tablet, or computer?

Technician's Assistant: How long ago was your photos deleted?

Yes, but was the phone backed up via iCloud previously.

I'm not sure - I turned it in so pictures would automatically go to cloud
Technician: Harry, IT replied 8 months ago

If there is an iCloud backup with the pictures saved on it, you can restore the devices then use that backup to restore the phone to that point.
