One of my readers wrote us asking for help about recovering his deleted wechat history. The deleted WeChat history is terribly important for him, because he need the deleted wechat history as evidence for some legal issue. Frustratingly, he has no iTunes backup nor iCloud backup at all.
Deleting data, especially instant messenger related data like wechat history that has never been backed up through iTunes or iCloud, can be a disaster. However, this does not mean that unintentionally deleted wechat history can not be recovered without backup.
There is a piece of third party iPhone data recovery software that can recover the deleted wechat history directly from the iPhone even if you have no backup file at all, providing that the deleted wechat history has not been overwritten and erased permanently. Here is how.
> Install and run iFonebox on your computer.
Note: iFonebox is available for both Windows and Mac version, please choose the right version to download and install.
> Connect your iPhone to computer.
> Click “Start” after your iPhone is recognized by iFonebox.
> Choose WeChat Messages to scan selectively from the interface listing all the supported data categories.
> Wait until the data scanning and analyzing process completes.
> Preview the exported wechat messages and choose whatever you need to recover to your computer.
Note: If you want to recover the deleted messages only, you can choose to show the deleted items in Yellow only by switch on the option “ Only display the deleted items” and then hit the button of “Recover to PC”.
