    It should be impossible to recover after described procedure. You basically delete all the valuable data, and write non-valuable data until the memory is full, then remove all the non-valuable data from the device - and no way the valuable can be recovered from the device afterwards. Maybe you have the data backed up to iCloud, and it restores itself every time? How do you even check that the data ain't nuked?

    Quite impossible since Apple mobile driver disallows USB debugging mode and other file explorer kinda things difficult to view/remove.

    My friend bought a data recovery software before, I tested it on my phone, and the deleted data can be loaded on computer , It's terrible

    Factory reset the device and feed it with new data such as big movies. Once the data is overwritten, then it is hard to be recovered. for jailbreak device, you can take this tutorial as en example.
