How to Undelete Photos on the iPhone

Looking for a way to recover deleted photos on the iPhone? The scenario can be grim when important images are deleted before being backed up or imported to iPhoto. Unfortunately, iOS does not have a trash can or recycling bin that stores deleted files.

This means that when pictures are deleted in the Photos app or elsewhere they are immediately removed from the iPhone. So is there any hope for recovery? Luckily there are several software packages that can be used to recover deleted images on iOS hardware. Leawo iOS Data Recovery is one example, which can be installed on Mac or Windows computers for $59.95.

How to Add Photo Booth to the iPhone

Photo Booth is a fun way to snap photos using the Mac iSight camera for OS X users. Several filter effects applied in real time have given countless photos the Photo Booth look. Now iPhone owners with jailbroken devices can install a port of Photo Booth to get these effects on the go.

Once installed, the Photo Booth app icon is added to the home screen. Opening the app will present nine preview thumbnails updated in real time for each effect. The standards Thermal Camera, Mirror, X-Ray, Kaleidoscope, Light Tunnel, Squeeze, Twirl and Stretch surround a center panel dubbed Normal with no effect applied. Simply tap the effect of your choice to start the Photo Booth camera.

Using Slow Motion Video on the iPhone 5s

Slow motion video capability has been touted as one of the key features of the iPhone 5s camera. Apple has designed the new video mode to take advantage of the latest iPhone hardware and iSight camera. Recording and editing slow motion with iOS 7 results in quarter speed video highlights, thanks to 120 frame per second recording.

Using slow motion is even possible on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c, albeit with only 60 frames per second recording for half speed video. This is thanks to the iOS 7 jailbreak tweak Slo-mo Mod available on Cydia for free. So how can iPhone users record slow motion video in the iOS 7 Camera app?

Unlocking slow motion and burst mode on the iPhone 5 requires two packages to be installed from Cydia. These are appropriately named Slo-mo Mod and Burst Mode. The developer notes that in order for Slo-mo Mod to work, the Burst Mode tweak must also be installed. Getting these iPhone 5s camera improvements is simple once the iPhone 5 is jailbroken with evasion.
