Hello all, I badly need your help! My settings for text was only 30 days so I can’t find texts I need. I need to access my old text messages from I cloud. How do I do this? It would be great to have your suggestion. Thank you in advance for your help!
Have iPhone backup but don’t know how to recover text messages from it? If you have a backup made after the messages were received and before they were deleted, you can restore your entire device with that backup. However, you cannot access only iCloud texts without restoring the whole backup. Note that doing so will overwrite whatever is on the phone now. Actually, you can use iFonebox to retrieve photos from an iCloud backup. The process is so easy, even for a beginner. It also guarantees the safety of the data that hadn’t been included in the backup. The following are some of its highly useful features:
- It can be used to extract up to 17 different types of data including photos, videos, voice memos, reminders, call logs, safari bookmarks and more
- It is very easy to use and protect your personal information
- Apply to almost all kinds of iPhone/iPad/iPod touch
- It can also be used to recover data directly from iOS devices in case you didn’t have a backup
- It comes with a preview function that allows for selective data recovery
You can either download your deleted text messages from iCloud backup/ iTunes backup or can use iFonebox to scan your device directly without backup. iFonebox is available as a trial version to help you find out the erased/lost content as long as they’re not wiped by new data. Amazing, right?
Before we start the instructions, you need to download the program to your computer. iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to install the right version for your computer. Once you have installed the program, next I will show you how to export text messages from iCloud to computer.
Step one: Run iFonebox and enter your Apple ID
Run the program, then just click the “Recover from iCloud Backup” at the top right of the software. You’ll be asked to sign in with your Apple ID account and password correctly.
Step two: Download data from iCloud backup
After you have selected an iCloud backup to download, it will start the downloading process. You can select all to download.
Step three: Scan data
Click on “Messages” icon to start scanning automatically. It will take some time, you should wait patiently.
Step four: Preview and download data
Now you can select the texts you want and click “Recover to pc”, then the instruction is accomplished.
