Who doesn’t know about the iCloud and Google backup these days? If you own a smartphone, more often than not, your pictures and videos are continuously being backed up on your phone for your convenience.

To access the photos and videos, sign in to your Google account from a PC or desktop, and there you go! Google’s vast AI capabilities allow you to search through photos for specific keywords (cars, cats, flowers, etc.), or dates/years, and even people to find the one(s) you’re looking for.

Nowadays, Whats-app is the most common medium of quick and instant messaging. If you have turned on the chat backup option in your Whats-app settings, it will back up all the data within the time interval you’ve chosen for the backup, i.e., daily, weekly, monthly.

For SMS or texts, if you are lucky, you can get it back if your smartphone’s backup setting was turned on before your phone lost it!

Besides the other data such as photos, videos, and conversations, contacts are no less important! Losing all of your contacts can be a very stressful situation as you need all of your contacts to connect with your friends, family, and other day-to-day businesses.

A list of previously made archives will pop up. Find the date of an archive that should still have your contacts list intact and click restore. Click ‘restore’ again to confirm and begin the restoration process. After that, an e-mail will be sent to the address tied to your Apple ID.
