    Is it possible to restore an iPhone from an old iCloud backup? I've just noticed a large chunk of my photos have vanished from my phone at some point over the last week. Is it possible to restore an older iCloud back up from a week ago or can you only resore the latest?!

    Thanks!

    Have you looked to see if the photos themselves are still on iCloud?

    Nope, not on there. I don't use the iCloud photo gallery. I enabled it the other day by mistake and then disabled it. I think this is when it's deleted things. It's randomly chosen which to delete, the oldest photos are still there as are the new ones. It's picked ones around Christmas time and deleted a load from our honeymoon!

    What a nightmare.

    Have you checked recently deleted (Photos>Albums>Recently Deleted)?
