To prevent these situations where all your data is lost from a system error, Apple has added Backup Feature to their devices. You should do a regular backup of your device using iTunes or iCloud.

But, if you have done a backup of your device, then I am going to show you How to Recover Photos and Videos from iPhone Backup.
How to Recover Photos and Videos from iPhone Backup
Method 1 : Using another iOS Device
The first method to recover data from backup if your device is stolen or lost is by using another iOS Device. iOS Devices are so popular so you will not have any problem finding another iPhone or any other device.
Again, you can recover photos and videos from an iPhone Backup only if you have done a Backup using iTunes or iCloud.
Ask your friend if he/she has backed up his/her device and after you make sure that their device is backed up, connect your friend’s iPhone with your Computer. After your computer recognizes your friend’s iPhone, use the Restore from Backup option found on iTunes or Restore using your iCloud Backup.
