No. Although you can achieve iPad data recovery, it's not possible to recover deleted photos from your camera memory card on iPad. If you intend to do that, getting a PC is a must, be it a Windows, Mac, or Linux one.

You can connect the memory card to your iPad via an SD card reader and view the content. However, you can't save photos from the iPad to the SD card. The iPad here is not a working choice for a data recovery system. Therefore, to recover deleted photos from an SD card, you have to prepare yourself with a Windows or Mac computer.

The most effective way to retrieve deleted photos from SD card is by using professional SD card recovery software such as iBoysoft Data Recovery. With it, you can easily recover deleted and lost images, documents, and videos from any type of SD card, including SDHC, SDXC, and microSD card.

Step 1. Connect the camera SD card to your Windows PC. An SD card reader might be required if you are using a microSD card.

Step 2. Click on the download button below to free download iBoysoft Data Recovery for Windows. Then install and launch this SD card recovery tool.

Step 3. In the main interface, opt for the Data Recovery module. In case your SD card is RAW, choose the RAW drive recovery instead.

Step 5. Feel free to filter found results and preview them. Once making sure which are recoverable, click on the Recover button and save recovered photos in a different location.
