If you deleted some important WhatsApp messages from iPhone and realized later that you actually need them, what should you do? I understand that you must be desperate to find a way to undo the mistake and recover the deleted iPhone WhatsApp messages.
To tell the truth, you can recover the deleted WhatsApp messages as long as you have backed up your iPhone to iTunes or iCloud. With the backup file, you can either recover the deleted whatsapp messages from iTunes backup or from iCloud backup. Here is how.
Restore Deleted WhatsApp messages from iCloud Backup
If you have backed up your iPhone to iCloud, you should have an iCloud backup file. Actually if you have switched on automatic iCloud backing up, your iPhone should be backed up to iCloud every day. Here is how to recover deleted WhatsApp messages from iCloud backup.
> Launch WhatsApp
> Go to Settings > Chats > Chat Backup to make sure that there is an iCloud backup for your WhatsApp chat history
> Delete and reinstall WhatsApp from the App Store.
> Verify your phone number, then follow the on-screen prompts to restore WhatsApp chat history.
Note: The phone number used for backup and restoration must be the same. You cannot restore the chat history from another WhatsApp account.
Restore Deleted WhatsApp Messages from iTunes Backup
You should have an iTunes backup file, if you have backed up iPhone to your computer through iTunes. Restoring deleted WhatsApp messages from iTunes backup file does not mean that you have to restore your iPhone with the entire iTunes backup file. With professional third party iPhone data recovery software, you can recover the deleted WhatsApp messages from iTunes backup selectively.
