How to Restore WeChat Audios and Videos in iPhone
As one of the most popular social media application, WeChat makes it very easy to capture and share moments in our lives with people we care. You can take short videos of your baby learning to walk and share with your family members, or chat with friends by sending instant audio messages in a group talk. These audios and videos are precious memories and sometimes even our emotional support. However, if you uninstalled your WeChat before you could save these videos to your iPhone, they can be lost forever. Is there any way to reclaim these memories?
If you have backed up WeChat before, you can restore your WeChat audio messages and videos without too much trouble. If not, there are still other ways worthing trying. Let’s first look at how to backup your WeChat and restore it.
Step 1: Launch WeChat, and select the Me tab. Then open Settings.
Step 2: Go to Chat > Backup/Restore Chat History:
Step 3: Select Backup, and then tap Select All > Done. You can set a password to protect your backup file or tap on Upload to directly save your backup file.
