how do I get photos off if screen is broken & phone is locked?


iMore Question


So I broke my screen months ago & couldnt afford to fix it. I want to get all the photos off but the phone has a lock on it and the screen is so messed up it wont let me do anything. Is there any way I can get in?

I know its a long shot

If you used iCloud you could log into your iCloud account via the website www.icloud.com. From there you can select the Pictures icon and your photos will appear there.
