If your child does not want parents see messages on his or her iPhone, he or she simply deleted them. If you have found that there is something terribly wrong with your kids, you can retrieve the deleted messages selectively and directly from the iPhone, provided that the deleted messages have not been overwritten or erased permanently and you know the pass code of the iPhone.
I would like to introduce a piece of iPhone data recovery software, iFonebox, which is capable of recovering deleted text messages from iPhone even if there is no backup file. However, I am not encouraging you to spy your children’s iPhones, I am offering a way for the sake of preventing your children from committing something wrong. Please keep it in mind.
Now I am going to get down to detailed steps about how to recover the deleted messages from iPhone directly and selectively.
> Install and run iFonebox.
Note: iFonebox is available for both Windows and Mac, please choose the right version to download and install according to what kind of computer you are using.
> Connect your iPhone to your computer.
> Click “Start” after your iPhone is recognized by iFonebox.
Note: If your iPhone is not recognized by iFonebox, please check whether you have trusted the computer you have connected your iPhone to on your iPhone.
> Choose the text messages to scan selectively by clicking on the icon for Messages app from the screen listing all the supported data categories.
> The data scanning and analyzing will take quite a while if there is a large number of messages stored on the iPhone, please wait patiently.
> After the data scanning and analyzing is completed, all the text messages will be exported and presented for selection.
> Please select the deleted messages items only to recover by checking the box “Only display the deleted”.
> You can recover the deleted messages to your computer by hitting the button of “Recover to PC” if you are using the Windows Version.
