I deleted a very important text message on my phone by mistake! I backed up my phone to my Mac using iTunes. I would like to recover only text messages if possible. Anyone have any ideas I can try?
We all know that texts are part of the backup, the backup is not something that you can see or access in any way, other than to restore the information to your iPhone. You would lose anything done since that backup. It may not be what you want. I would recommend a reliable iOS data recovery software to you. With the help of iFonebox, you can recover only missing text messages from iTunes backup without losing any existing data on your phone.
iFonebox serves at the first aid to iOS users, whenever they find their precious data on their iDevices missing. It has three different working modes to help you to recover your lost data. This program enables you to restore data selectively, it means you can restore only deleted test messages from iTunes backup. You can also preview data before purchase. In addition to that, it is far more than a recovery tool, it’s also an excellent backup tool, what an amazing program!
Before we start to retrieve only erased text messages from iTunes backup, you should download the software. iFonebox is compatible with Mac and win, please make sure to download the correct version.
Step one: launch iFonebox
Click “Recover from iTunes Backup”, you’ll see all backups you have listed in the interface, choose the right backup file, then click “Select” button to begin.
Ps: If your iOS device backup is not displayed here, it’s probably because your iOS device has not synced with iTunes on this computer or you save the backup in other location. You can click “Select” button to choose the backup by yourself.
Step two: Scan data
It will scan automatically after you click the “Messages” icon, it might take your some time. The more data existing, the longer time it will take to scan, please wait patiently.
Step three: Restore data
Now you can recover them, choose the item you want to restore and click the “Recover to PC” or “Recover to device” button.
