Way 2: Restore iPad 3 Camera Roll by extracting iTunes backup file

Personally, I never suggest you using iTunes to recover camera roll from the new iPad directly, since iTunes will overwrite your current data with the data in the backup. Alternatively, you can use iPhone Data Recovery to selectively restore camera roll from iPad 3 by extracting iTunes backup, even your device is lost or broken.

  • Select "Recover Data from iTunes Backup File" on the software's interface. Select the recent iPad backup file and click "Start Scan".
  • Preview and select the photos to restore by clicking on "Recover" button.
