My son-in-law updated to the latest i0S 11.2.6 on his iPhone 8. Some messages that were stored in WeChat disappeared and also from some of contacts. My main concern now is to restore WeChat messages. I had never connected it to iTunes so I have no backup. Is there a way to recover missing data?
As far as recovering lost WeChat messages, first thing to do is a restart or forced restart on the iPhone and see if they reappear. If this instruction don’t help, the remaining thing to try is to restore the device from a backup. If you haven’t backed it up, Apple can’t help get information back. Is there any chance for you to restore missing WeChat conversations? If you’ve read a number of discussion threads but can’t find the answer, don’t be frustrated. A powerful data recovery called iFonebox might help.
Here’re some main advantages of the program:
- Selective preview and recovery: allow you to preview data in details and select the exact contents you want to recover
- Flexible restoration modes: recover from iOS device, recover from iTunes backup, recover from iCloud backup

- Can be used to retrieve different file formats: like photos, videos, call logs, safari history, calendar, notes, reminders, etc.
- Compatibility: Compatible with all kinds of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
As long as your iPhone can be recognized by computer, “Recover from iOS device” mode is applicable in this case. Please don’t write anything else to the drive until the files are recovered because the missing messages were easily overwritten by new data. You’d better stop using the phone and enable the flight to maximize assurance they’re not be destroyed.
