Hi, my daughter lost her iPhone but she had backed up the iPhone by synced it to iCloud. Now I wondered if there is a way to recover the texts or at least take a look at the data stored in that backup as they are very special. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
We all know that Apple allows users to view some kinds of data on iCloud.com directly like contacts, photos, reminders, calendar events, notes, etc. But if you are looking to see if texts were saved on iCloud when you lost your iPhone, then please note that the service provided by Apple does not cover everything. Since it has limitations, you’re not allowed to access the texts on iCloud, let iFonebox be your inspiration when you feel overwhelmed.
The professional iOS data recovery software is capable of recognizing different file formats and helps the user to extract various kinds of data that you want from that backup like photos, contacts, notes, call logs, safari history, calendar, reminders, voice memos, WeChat messages, WhatsApp chats and so on. The main features of the program are:
- Three excellent recovery modes
- Very easy to use and save you a lot of time
- Can deal with up to 17 kinds of data
- Support data preview before downloading them from backup
- Selectively retrieval without restoring the entire backup file
- Compatible with all kinds of operating systems including iOS 11
iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. You can choose different versions here according to your computer’s operation system. Simply download the trail version and have a try. Then I will introduce the steps in following text through which you can restore texts on iCloud easily if your iPhone is lost.
Step one: Run iFonebox and enter your Apple ID
Run the program, then just click the “Recover from iCloud Backup” at the top right of the software. You’ll be asked to sign in with your Apple ID account and password correctly.
Step two: Download data from iCloud backup
After you have selected an iCloud backup to download, it will start the downloading process. You can select all to download.
Step three: Scan data
Click on “Messages” icon to start scanning automatically. It will take some time, you should wait patiently.
Step four: Preview and download data
Now you can select the items you want and click “Recover to pc” or “Recover to device”, then the instruction is accomplished.
