Nowadays, not so much people would choose iTunes backups but iCloud. Because iCloud makes it easier to keep you contents on the iOS devices safe. As long as you have actived iCloud, all your lost data and files are still on your iCloud account. To check it out, you just need to login your Apple ID and password on iCloud’s official site to view your contacts, imessages, etc. To restore information from iCloud, you need to do:
Step 1: Go to Settings -> iCloud on your phone and turn off the Contacts.
Step 2: Then you will see a message and select “Keep on My iPhone” option.
Step 3: You need to turn on the Contacts again and tap “Merge”. Sit back and wait for a few minutes then you will see your lost or deleted photos are back on your phone. If it doesn’t work, just deleted your iCloud account and add it back to do the above steps all over again.

Option 3: Retrieve Deleted Photos from iPhone with the Help of iPhone Photo Recovery Tool:
What if you have no iTunes backup or didn’t active iCloud? Is there any way to get your deleted pics back? You’re are in luck. There are some 3rd party iPhone photo recovery software tools that are able to retrieve things such as contacts, text messages, photos that you have deleted by accident or lost somehow from iPhone on Macs and PCs. You would need to find a iPhone data recovery software tool. They may not be free. I have tested Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery (Download it here) and it worked well. You may give it a shot!

In the future, I highly suggest you back up all your stuff on iPhone to iTunes or iCloud, at least use something like Dropbox or Google Drive. With so many free data backup options out there there’s no reason not to use one to prevent data loss.
