Broke your iPhone? Don’t worry β€” you can probably still recover your photos, even if Apple isn’t able to help

broken iphone photo recover CBC

Photos stored in a broken iPhone, even one that doesn’t turn on anymore, can still sometimes be retrieved β€” even if Apple says they can’t.
Canadian broadcast service CBC interviewed a tech repair shop that said it can and has retrieved photos from broken iPhones, but it’s not a 100% guarantee.
If you want to recover your photos from a broken iPhone, Apple may be able to help depending on how damaged it is. But if your iPhone doesn’t turn on, Apple is unlikely to help, and you may need to turn to unofficial services that may come with their own costs and risks.
You can also prevent ever losing your photos if you use Google Photos or Apple’s iCloud to back up your photos in the cloud.

It can still be possible to retrieve the photos stored inside a broken iPhone even if Apple says it can’t help, according to an interview by Canadian public broadcast service CBC with Jessa Jones, owner of tech repair shop iPadRehab outside of Rochester, New York.

The most common answer that Apple gives to iPhone users is “there is no way to get your pictures from your iPhone if it won’t turn on,” Jones told CBC. But, having recovered photos from broken iPhones herself, Jones said “it’s absolutely not true.”

Jones said that most water-related iPhone damage is recoverable, “about 95%,” she said.

It is unclear what incited Cardi B’s tweet, but it wasn’t the only tweet she sent and deleted on Sunday, having earlier responded to an accusation that she was “blackfishing.” One Twitter user stated that the rapper wasn’t black, given that her father is Dominican and her mother is Trinidadian.

The user first tweeted that “We just accept blackfishing as the real thing . Ok …got it [sic],” then in another reply said “Hair texture can be manipulated i#and every Afro that we saw from Cardi was a combed out braid down … obviously [sic]”

How Moe Berg went from playing for 5 MLB teams to being a US spy in WWII who thwarted Nazi efforts to build a nuclear bomb

Moe Berg

Morris “Moe” Berg spent 15 years playing major league baseball.
His record on the field was middling, but Berg was distinguished by his pursuits off it β€” namely, his time as a US spy during World War II.
Visit Business Insider’s homepage for more stories.

Morris “Moe” Berg’s dying words β€” “How did the Mets do today?” β€” were on brand for the 70-year-old New York native who enjoyed a 15-year career in Major League Baseball before America entered World War II.

Sports columnist John Kieran called Berg “The Professor” on account of his reputation as an Ivy League-educated linguist and lawyer, a mentor and coach to younger MLB players, and a newspaper-devouring raconteur who earned fanfare as a repeat contestant on the NBC radio quiz show “Information Please.”

His 1972 New York Times obituary eulogized, first and foremost, the “catcher in majors who spoke 10 languages.”

But the brainy 6-foot-1-inch bullpen catcher with an unspectacular batting average had another career entirely: He was a World War II secret agent who gathered intelligence on three continents for the US government.

“We often think about athletes just playing ball and going in for records. But Moe, Ted Williams twice, Joe DiMaggio β€” they went off and risked their lives and their careers to serve,” said filmmaker Aviva Kempner, who illuminates Berg’s life and legacy in her 2019 documentary, “The Spy Behind Home Plate.”

Berg’s particular line of work during the war β€” he ultimately served as a spy for the Manhattan Project while working for the Office of Strategic Services, the forerunner of the CIA β€” further differentiated him. Who else would sit in the dugout talking about whether Mussolini would win or not?” Kempner said.

As the surviving members of the Greatest Generation dwindle and tensions rise among 21st-century nuclear-armed powers, Kempner emphasizes the …read more
