Where is the iPhone trash can?

Have you ever wondered where the apps and files we delete are in a file Iphone? Since it does not have a specific recycle bin program for storing temporary files, as a rule, everything that is deleted from iOS is definitely deleted.

How to recover deleted files and apps on iPhone

Although iOS does not have a recycle bin, just like traditional computers, there are applications with “deleted” partitions – allowing the user to recover them within a certain time. See below, what are the main native apps with trash and how to recover deleted files.

1. iCloud Drive (files)

The Files app, which is responsible for storing iCloud Drive data, contains the location of the deleted items called “Deleted”. They are all stored in this section until you decide to delete them permanently. To do this, just go to “Explore” and click on “Deleted”. Finally, hold your finger on the item and select the “Recover” option.
