"The iPhone slid from the pocket to the ground and damaged the screen. Although the phone display was working, the touch didn't work. I've contacted Genius to have it repaired tomorrow, but I'm worried that the photos on the device will be lost or damaged. And I haven't done any backups for my iPhone, so I take that very seriously. Is there a good way to retrieve pictures from a broken iPhone? I would appreciate any help."
