How to Download Photos from iCloud

“I just found my photos disappeared on my iPhone which were taken when I was traveling to China Great Wall with my dear friends a week ago. I don’t know why is that happened. But what I care about is get back the lost photos. Are my photos stored to iCloud automatically? If yes, how to access iCloud photos and how to download photos from iCloud to PC? Please advice, thank you!

Nowadays, people like taking photos with their iPhone or iPad when they have meals with friends, go travelling with lovers, or even stay at home alone. Since the picture they took are the record of past and unforgettable scenes, they could be very precious. But sometimes we may lose these precious pictures due to some unexpected reasons such as iOS device broken, water damaged, iOS updating fail or iTunes sync error. However, you don’t need to be worried as Apple provides users with iCloud which will automatically do a backup once a day when the device is plugged in, locked and connected to Wi-Fi. So that you can access iCloud from PC and download iCloud photos to PC locally or restore your device with the whole iCloud backup. Even if the automatic sync never happened or failed, the photos you take with iPhone or iPad will automatically upload to your iCloud Photo Stream when you leave the Camera app connected to Wi-Fi. The photos uploaded to Photo Stream are stored in iCloud for 30 days to give your devices plenty of time to connect and download them. So you can sign into iCloud online to view iCloud photos on PC and download them.

Additionally, I would like to demonstrate a smarter way to view and download iCloud backup to PC. FoneLab iPhone Data Recovery offers you three ways to retrieve deleted photos from iPhone, iPad. Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes Backup File, or Recover from iCloud Backup File. This means you can still download or recover lost photos from iCloud even if your device isn’t at hand. Free download the software and have a try.
