Method 1 – How To Recover Deleted Text Messages On Iphone: 5 Ways (2021)
Today today today today were going to be talking about something pretty cool something i havent talked much about before. But that is iphones so i am pretty much 100 positive that all of you have one of these in. Your back pocket right now and one of the apps that you probably use the most is messages but what. Happens when you accidentally delete one say you want to get the conversation back maybe some photos that you had.
Sent to someone and you accidentally deleted it what do you do now well youre in luck because today were. Going to be covering just that and were starting right now so if youre like most iphone users the messages. App is probably of utmost importance to you and this is compounded especially if you use this for professional reasons. And so it would cause a pretty understandable punch to the gut if uh you all of a sudden lost. A conversation that was either really important or contained some important information or documents attachments photos etc but dont despair.
Just yet because weve got these five quick things were gonna be running through right now and the first one. Is use your icloud backup so this one is probably the most obvious but if you regularly use icloud and. Sync your phone with icloud you can just tap into that backup and pull basically anything that you want from. Any point in time its a lot like time machine for mac if youre familiar now i should warn you. Real quick that you should use caution when you use this method as it does require you to restore your.
Phone to a factory setting and if thats a bit too much commitment for you and understandably so its a. Bit of a scary concept then i would recommend you try the other four methods in this tutorial before using. This one and just kind of use it as a last resort but if youre comfortable then you can follow. These steps to restore from an icloud backup go ahead and open your settings app then go to general and. Select the reset option next tap erase all content and settings and confirm your choice by clicking erase now this.
Is a pretty sketchy thing to do i know but as long as you have your icloud backup you have. Nothing to fear so lets move on next up go ahead and follow your phones instructions until you see the. Apps in data page and from there choose restore from icloud backup then from here youll sign into your icloud. Account and choose the most recent backup that you know contains the conversation that you had before it was deleted. So for example if you had the conversation last week and you deleted the message today then youll want to.
Go back to that backup that was made last week or anytime before last week when that conversation took place. Finally wait for the recovery process to finish and you should have your conversation back now keep in mind as. Of june 2020 im using ios 13.5.1 which is the latest version however this should be duplicable for pretty much. Any ios version out there as this procedure really hasnt changed much in the last several years now the second. Method is we can actually retrieve messages from an icloud backup individually now this is kind of dependent on a.
Couple things here the first is the territory in which you live and the second is entirely predicated upon whether. Or not youve turned on messages inside of the icloud backup setting itself so yeah theres a couple conditions with. This one but if you happen to luck out then it works really well and you can actually check to. See whether you are able to do this method by just going to your settings then clicking on your profile. Icloud and seeing if messages is turned on now if not you can skip this method it doesnt really matter.
Its just another one to check off the list but if you are one of the lucky souls to have. This enabled inside your settings then go ahead and follow these steps just go ahead and open the settings app. Tap your name and select icloud and go ahead and uncheck messages and click disable and download messages then once. Its finished go ahead and check messages again now something important to note about this method is that theres a. Couple reasons why you need to turn off text messages in the third step that i just mentioned firstly turning.
Them off actually forces your iphone to download the most recent versions of those messages straight from icloud right to. Your phone second you want to prevent your iphone from telling icloud to get rid of the deleted messages that. Youre trying to recover once that happens you wont be able to use this method anymore so use caution with. That as well now method number three is using itunes to recover your messages this is very similar to the. Icloud backup except this time were going to be using an itunes backup so hopefully if youre an iphone user.
Youve been connecting your iphone to your computer to sync it with itunes for your music and all your movies. And stuff like that at least once in a while and if youve done this theres a good chance that. Theres an itunes backup waiting for you on your computer that you could use to restore your messages now the. Process that im going to be using and showing you how to do today is only applicable to mac os. Catalina or later if you happen to have mac os mojave for example its a lot of the same process.
Its just not exactly the same i dont have time to go over every single option today its very similar. But theres a lot of tutorials in our guide which i will link to down below in the description if. Youre interested so to restore from your itunes backup connect your iphone to your mac next launch finder and select. Your iphone under locations then click the restore backup button in the general tab then pick the most recent and. Relevant backup that you want to restore then enter your password if youre asked and click restore so again this.
Is very similar to icloud youre just taking a backup that was loaded onto your computer at some point putting. It back onto your phone and that will come with all of the messages that you may have deleted from. Past weeks days years whatever method number four is going to be using recovery software so if youve made it. To this point in the video then theres probably a good chance that you havent gotten your messages back which. I know it sucks but dont fret we still have a couple more methods to go over and this one.
Is particularly powerful and by far my favorite the avenue that were going to be taking is using a software. Called disk drill which is going to go into the phone and pull the messages out for us all completely. Intact and ready to go now before we get started in this method there is something that i want to. Just take a real quick 30 seconds to explain thatll make this process a lot quicker easier and simpler to. Understand so each minute that goes by that you use your phone constantly theres files that are being written and.
Pulled from the memory thats inside of the phone and as you continue to use your phone the chances of. Recovery unfortunately go down and down and down why is that well the basic premise of file recovery is were. Trying to not overwrite the files because what happens when you delete something is that space or that file is. Just marked as open and available ready to be overwritten at a later date by some other file like a. Photo or even another message and so at this point if youre still using your phone and downloading games and.
Apps and things like that to your phone i would recommend that you stop that or at least try and. Keep it to a minimum before you run the software because whats gonna happen is as you use your phone. Its going to continue to overwrite files and those files that are overwritten might end up being your messages and. So you dont want to have that happen and so minimizing the amount that you use your phone before you. Scan it with software is paramount so with that being said lets go ahead and recover our messages first of.
All go ahead and go down to the link in the description where you can download and install disk drill. From the official clever files website and once its connected go ahead and launch disk drill and at this point. Youll have a couple tutorials which you can run through if you want to just kind of teach you all. About the interface and how it works but once you get through that you can go ahead and initialize the. Free scan just like this by clicking the recovery button next to your iphone now from here well just wait.
For the scan to finish and i will come back to you once its done alright so once it is. Finished you can go ahead and preview all of the deleted and existing text messages just like this you can. See which ones are intact and even some of the attachments and things that have been sent through messages inside. Of your iphone which is super cool once you find the text messages that you want simply select them just. Like this then click the recover button and get your text back finally number five the last way that you.
Can get your text messages back is by contacting your carrier so if all else fails contacting your carrier can. Be an extremely beneficial method to getting text messages back especially in the event of a legal suit or some. Kind of professional engagement where you need those messages back or else well its definitely not the most reliable way. Its certainly worth a shot especially if your carrier supports that kind of thing or theyre more apt to give. You your text messages back in the event of a loss for example and since all of you guys im.
Sure have different carriers i cant possibly begin to explain how to do it for every single person but im. Just going to be going over the basic premise of how to do it from inside your iphone so heres. How go ahead and open your settings app on your iphone then go to general and tap about at the. Top of the list and heres where youll see your carrier now from here you can visit your carriers website. And get things like contact information to actually get in touch with them and tell them your situation and perhaps.
Just maybe theyll be able to work with you and get your text messages back and honestly i wish you. Guys all the best of luck with that because losing text messages or really anything from your phone or any. Device is an extremely scary and just kind of mini heart attack situation but anyway i hope that this video. Genuinely helped you guys i really hope it did and if it did always be sure to leave us a.
