Photo recovery/Where are they stored

Block Image

iPhone ran over by lawn mower. Sim a flash memory in tact. Where are photos stored and can they be retrieved by rebuilding logic board? AND know they weren't backed up. Thanks in advance.

Is this a good question?

Can you advise where the CPU is located? Thanks


Right where the board is twisted the most so I wound hope it survived at all. This thing looks like it’s been in a plane crash.

You can’t just read them from flash memory, the content is encrypted with a key derived from a key inside the CPU and your passcode.

So you need to rebuild the phone so it still has the original CPU, is able to boot and type in passcode, then an option to upload the photo via USB or internet is possible.

Without a pitcure of your device, nobody has any idea.

I'm trying to add a photo but I can't get it to appear.

With this amount of bending, twisting and folding, I doubt that any major chip will survive.
