    If you have a backup, you could attempt to do a restore. . . . My advice for the future: Leave pictures in the Recently Deleted folder . . . just in case.

    I do believe they are gone unless they are still in your iCloud back up. But if you have backed up since deleting the photos, then they are gone. You can check at iCloud.com on your computer and see if they are there. You might try this as well. I doubt it will work since you manually deleted the photos from recently deleted.

    I always go through my recently deleted with a fine tooth comb before I delete them all. I delete them about once a week.

    Do you have backups available on iTunes or iCloud? You actually can restore your lost photos from iTunes/iCloud backups with easy steps.
    Method 1. Restore from iTunes Backup.
    Launch iTunes and connect iPhone to it, then go to "File" > "Devices" > "Restore from backup".
    Method 2. Restore from iCloud Backup.
    Reset your iPhone via "Settings" > "Reset" > "Erase all contents and settings". It will prompt you whether to restore data from iCloud.

    Do you know if the backup keeps copies of old photos? Did anyone do this and it work?

    Girlfriends Mum has just got her new iPhone and gave her daughter her old phone...but her daughter has gone through the old phone and deleted everything and then deleted it from the deleted folder.
