Hello! I’ve searched but cannot find an answer to this situation. I backed up my iPhone 8 to my Windows computer. Question is, how do I restore my iPhone from a backup without losing current data? How can you extract data (specifically text messages) of a previous backup? Thanks in advance!
Messages are a part of the backup, as we all know, if you’re going to download them, you need to restore it as a new device as previously instructed. Besides, the backup is always very large, your operating system may will not let the backup take place. So is it possible to restore texts from iTunes backup without losing data? Definitely yes! It won’t be a difficult task if you turn to iFonebox for help. With the powerful application, you are able to move any texts from backup file to your iOS device manually without having to restore.
