There is a very effective way on how to recover your messages easily. Yes, you heard it just right. You can recover your lost messages from iPhone X or iPhone 8/7/6/5 in a fast and easy way.

Part 1. How to Recover Deleted Text Messages on iPhone Using Backup

1. Get back deleted text Messages from an iTunes Backup.

Actually, in terms of an Apple product, it is structured to have a backup storage of your files ranging from your photos down to your contacts.

One perfect example of an Apple software used for that purpose is iTunes.

Although iTunes is normally thought as a software used to download music to your iPhone device, it can be actually used to restore backups such as your messages.

However, in using iTunes to recover a backup of your files, there are some things you have to consider first.

  • You must make sure that you are using the latest version of iTunes. A lot of glitches happen if the version used is outdated.
  • The second thing you must take note of is that you must keep a backup of all your files before retrieving your data from the iTunes Backup.

There is a huge chance of losing everything including your current files if you don’t have a backup.

The main disadvantage of this method is everything you deleted before-photos, music and all the files will also be automatically retrieved.

To restore iPhone deleted messages from iTunes backup, first is you have to connect your iPhone to your computer via the cable connection. Open your iTunes and select your iPhone as the preferred device. In the summary panel of iTunes, select the “restore” option.

2. Restore Deleted Texts Messages from iCloud Backup

Another software that you can use to retrieve your files is the newest invention of iPhone-the iCloud. This is an online drive available for devices with iOS 6.0 and above.

However, you have to install everything including your old files to recover your messages. The sad thing about using iCloud is when you installed your backup files, it will overwrite your current files. All your recent files will be lost in the process.

Furthermore, you have to ensure that your iPhone device is automatically synced to your iCloud. Just like the iTunes, you must have the latest version of iCloud so you can be sure that it will work perfectly. You can simply open the iCloud Backup and choose which particular backup you would like to restore.

This procedure is not actually hassle-free. You won’t have any way to know which backup contains the message you like to restore. Sometimes, you will have to restore multiple backups just to find what exactly you are looking for.

3. Use a Third Application to Retrieve Your Deleted Messages

FoneDog toolkit is an application specially designed to recover data without any backups.

In just a span of 3 minutes, (yes you heard it right) you will be able to get your messages without any hassles. It makes restoring files very flexible. In just one click you can have a backup of the whole iOS device to your computer.

It also allows you to preview the files first and restore any item from the backup to a device. You can easily export what you want from the backup to your computer and there is no data loss on devices during the restoring process. You can selectively backup and restore any data you want.

Step 1: Download and Install FoneDog Application.

The first thing you have to do is first, you have to download and install the FoneDog application. Run the program on your computer. Use the USB cable that comes with your iPhone to connect your iPhone to your computer. Click on "Recover from iOS Device" option.

Tips: Before running FoneDog, you're supposed to download the latest version of iTunes. To avoid the automatically sync, don't launch iTunes when running FoneDog toolkit. I suggest you disable the automatical syncing in iTunes beforehand: launch iTunes > Preferences > Devices, check “Prevent iPods, iPhones, and iPads from syncing automatically”.

Step 2: Scan and Preview the Lost Data

Start scanning for the deleted messages. This process will take some time. While you are scanning your device, you can begin viewing the data found on your iPhone during the scanning process. Choose "Messages" on the left side of the program. You can read the whole messages wherein the deleted and existing messages on your iPhone are included.
