With the amazing high-definition camera, iPhone users like shooting high quality or even 4K videos to record their happy moments from kids, pets to moving selfies. Accidentally deleting videos from iPhone or iPad happens in daily life, and it’s not a comfortable feeling to find that the videos you cherish were lost. Fortunately, here are some free ways to retrieve deleted videos from iPhone 6s (Plus)/6 (Plus)/SE/5s/5c/5/4s, iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad mini, etc.

2.Scroll through to select the “Recently Deleted” album – all the videos or photos you have deleted will be in this folder.
3.To recover a Video, select it and tap on “Recover”.
