How many ways do you know to recover iPhone messages? What is the most important thing while recovering iPhone messages?
To the best of my knowledge, I can recover iPhone messages through restoring iPhone from iTunes or iCloud backup which you have created previously. As iTunes or iCloud does not allow accessing and recovering iPhone messages selectively, you have no other choices but to restore the entire backup. The restoring process will overwrite newly produced data which we don’t want risk losing.
Also, there are dozens of third party iPhone data recovery software that can help you extract the iPhone messages from the iTunes or iCloud backup selectively. In this way, you don’t need to worry about data overwriting any more. The drawback is that the backup file may not include all the iPhone messages you want to recover, as the backup file may be created days or even weeks ago.
Provided that you stop using iPhone right after you lose or accidentally delete iPhone messages, the best is to recover iPhone messages directly from the iPhone selectively with third party utility. What’s more, you can recover iPhone messages straight to iPhone with no more hassle!
