Hi, hoping someone can help me! I was transferring my photos and videos from my iPhone to my computer the other day. However half way through it would stay on a certain percentage and not finish. my phone broke and nothing can be recovered from it. When I went on to my Dropbox account my photos and videos are not saved (another issue as I had it to automatically sync). Is there a way for me to recover the photos and videos that would have transferred before I cancelled? It did not save them in to the new file I had made. Is there some type of recovery tool I can use, or some hidden files somewhere? I really have no idea where to start. I also did not have it backed up to iTunes so that option is out. Thank you.

I was trying to transfer the photos through the usb connected to the phone. My phone got wet and looks like it can't be powered up. It is at a computer place where they are trying to fix it but they can't get enough power to it to turn on. They have tried replacing parts on it as well. Thank you

Hi Lerk100113,

 

That's unfortunate, its possible there may be some remnants on your hard drive but its unlikely and corrupted (because of the non completion of the transfer)

 

Sadly your best shot is with the phone and well.........

 

Good luck

You can purchase a SIM card reader for about $6.50.  See if you can retrieve your photos from the SIM card.

It's an iPhone 6. Unfortunately it is broken and is unable to be fixed. They have even tried replacing a part and it won't turn on.

Thanks to both of you for your help. I really do appreciate it. I know I should have backed up my phone, but thought drop box was on top of it. I wouldn't worry except it had videos and footage of my baby when she was born.

The iPhone 6 does have a SIM card.

Sorry now I know what you mean. But the photos on an iPhone are stored on the device, not the SIM card. That's what I've been told several times. But I will definitely give it a shot thanks.

Unfortunately, after doing some more reading it appears that the iPhone 6 stores the photos on the camera roll, not the SIM card.
