Did you erase one of your texts by mistake? It is easy to push the wrong little red circle when deleting your messages on your iPhone. Maybe you lost or damaged your phone and now you want those messages and that data back. Another reason could be that you did an update and the phone started to act up.
Whatever reason you have to recover deleted messages there is help for you to get.
There are two ways to recover deleted texts for your iPhone:
- recover data without a backup
- recover data from a backup
As a iPhone user there is a feature that we should not forget when wanting to recover your deleted messages – iTunes. iTunes is the core element connecting your iPhone and your computer, PC or Mac.
Every time you sync your phone with iTunes there will be an automatic backup. These backups can not get accessed though without a software to extract the files. So when was the last time you connected your phone with iTunes? The data that you had on your phone at that time can get accessed.
If you do not sync your phone that often with iTunes there is another way to recover data without a back up. You will need a software to recover the deleted messages and files.
