How Can I Recover Photos And Video From Smashed Screen Iphone 6

<< < (3/3)

bw2341:
I did simplify my explanation a bit, assuming that the original poster's phone has been broken for at least a few days.

I too found that if you've recently unlocked the iPhone, you can plug in a USB keyboard or mouse on the lock screen and use it to enter the passcode.

To simulate the one-hour timeout, I forced USB Restricted Mode by repeated failing the Touch ID fingerprint detection. This prompts for and requires the use of the passcode. If you plug in a USB keyboard or mouse at this point, a notification pops up telling you to unlock the iPhone before connecting a USB accessory. The keyboard or mouse does not work in this case.

To the original poster, I think this side discussion of USB keyboards and mice is not very helpful for solving your problem. If you are very lucky and Touch ID & Passcode/USB Accessories is turned on, you can unlock the the phone using a USB keyboard. However, you can't connect the iPhone to the computer at the same time. You would have to use an alternate method to back up the photos such as subscribing to iCloud and backing up the photos online. You could maybe enable a Bluetooth keyboard so you can use the USB for a data connection. But, I'm not sure if the keyboard is useful at all if accessibility features have not been turned on already.

If the touchscreen digitizer is completely broken, the most effective way to recover the photos would be to pay a data recovery service. They would connect a new screen to allow the entry of the passcode to allow full usage of the iPhone.

This can be bypassed with certain models of Apple lightning to USB/HDMI accessory cables. This is a common method we use to operate locked phones that are in BFU (Before First Unlock) mode that have faulty displays. Otherwise the next best solution would be to buy a cheap display online and replace it.

I'd have to check which model cable/adapter works, but I'm not back in the lab until next week. I believe it's this one, but don't quote me on it 100% at this stage: https://www.jbhifi.com.au/products/apple-lightning-to-usb-3-camera-adapter
