Now that iOS 9.2 has been just our for no more than a week, you want to experience the latest iOS right away. The iOS 9.2 updating is a risky process, as it cause data loss from time to time. Here in this post I would like to share how to recover the lost messages after the iOS 9.2 update.

If you lost your messages from iPhone during the iOS 9.2 updating process, you can recover the text messages from iTunes backup if you have created one before the updating.  However, I am not suggesting restoring your iPhone from the iTunes backup, for you cannot recover the lost messages selectively from the iTunes backup file. Worse still, the restoring process cause data overwriting easily. Fortunately, there is powerful third party data recovering software like iFonebox which can recover lost messages selectively to computer.
Here is how.

> Install and run iFonebox.
> Choose the recovery mode of “Recover from iTunes Backup”.
> Select an iTunes backup file from which you want to retrieve your lost messages.
> Choose Messages to scan from the interface listing all the supported data types.
> Wait until the data scanning process completes.
> Preview all the exported messages and select whatever you need to recover and transfer to computer by clicking on the button of “Recover to Computer”.

If you lost your messages after updating to iOS 9.2 successfully, you can choose to scan your iPhone with iFonebox and get back your lost messages from the iPhone directly. Here is how.

> Install and run iFonebox.
> Connect your iPhone to computer.
> Click Start from the start-up interface after the iPhone is recognized.
> Choose Messages to scan from the interface listing all the supported data types.
> Wait until the data scanning process completes.
> Preview all the exported messages and select whatever you need to recover and transfer to computer by clicking on the button of “Recover to Computer”.

What about restore from iCloud backup. You may wonder why I didn’t mention restore from iCloud backup. Actually neither restoring from iCloud backup nor recover selectively from iCloud backup file with iFonebox is recommended. For one hand, iCloud restore, especially restore from iCloud backup created on iOS 9 result in recent calls and messages missing with no good reason at all, for another, there is no third party software that can recognized iCloud backup under iOS 9 currently.
