Retrieve Missing SMS/iMessages from iPhone 7/7 Plus
Hi guys, can you give me some suggestions as to how to retrieve deleted text messages on iPhone 7? I send and reply quite a lot messages on a daily basis because of my job. But yesterday when I was sending text messages to one of my clients to inform him of some work details, I accidentally pressed the deleting button and all my text messages were all deleted on my phone. This was really frustrating because some of the messages contain useful information and I believe there are some photos I haven’t yet got time to save to my phone. I wonder is there any way to restore the deleted text messages on iPhone 7? I’m running on iOS 10.3.1.
Solutions to Retrieving Deleted SMS on iPhone 7/iPhone 7 Plus
If you have the habit of backing up your iPhone data in iTunes, then things can be easy because you can restore your deleted data with iTunes backups. With the default iTunes restoring method, you may get your text messages back on your iPhone 7, but the trade off is that your current data may be deleted, because the iTunes ”Restore backup…” function will revert your iPhone to a previous state – anything you put on your phone after the backup file’s creation is going to be erased. Is there any other way to recover deleted SMS/iMessages while keeping the existing data intact?
