Recover deleted videos from iCloud backups

1. Start iPhone Backup Extractor and connect it to iCloud

Download the Free version of the iPhone Backup Extractor and install it on your macOS or Windows computer.

Access "Preferences" (using the "+" button), activate the iCloud tab and add your iCloud credentials.

For iCloud support, a subscription plan is required. If you plan to retrieve videos or other data from less than three devices, you'll need the Premium plan.

2. Select the iCloud backup and start downloading data

If you have more devices associated with an iCloud account, select the device first, then start downloading a recent backup first, to preview its contents.

From "Categories" section, use the checkmark and select "Videos" then continue using the Download button. The downloading process may take some time, depending on the backup size.

3. Recover and extract videos on computer

Once the iCloud backup is downloaded, the next step is to recover your videos. You have two options: use "Overview" mode, for in bulk videos extraction, and "App View" mode, to retrieve videos one by one, from a specific app.

In "Overview", click on videos and chose a location to save them. In "App view" mode, select the app containing your files, and, from the right tab, choose "Videos" and extract your data.
