Working fast with clumsy fingers can often lead us to that moment of realization that we’ve accidentally deleted a photo or some important document from our iCloud account.

It’s easy to think “Oh, that’s it, it’s gone for good”. But you can get it back. You just need to learn the failsafes that are built into iCloud so that your panic attack can stop in its tracks.

The steps start off simply enough

As presented in iMore’s article, “How to recover lost data from iCloud”, the steps to restoring that lost photo or document are quite simple:

  1. Go to iCloud.com using any web browser.
  2. Click on the Settings icon.
  3. Click Restore Files at the bottom left (under Advanced).
  4. Choose which files need to be restored.
  5. Click Restore Files.

Just like that, your files are as good as back. There are all sorts of files that you can use this for, too, and you can even restore your entire iCloud backup.
