Are you a clumsy iPhone user? Do you usually delete text messages accidentally? If yes, here are the quickest ways you can use to recover your precious messages.
Mac World reported that some people tend to send critical information or sensitive messages through texts. Although text messages are considered an informal way to send essential messages, some people still used it as their way of communication since it doesn't use WiFi signals.
Recovering deleted texts on iPhone
However, accidents happen. If you deleted your sweet messages to your boyfriend or girlfriend or removed your employer's confirmation text for a job interview, you don't have to panic about it. There are some ways to recover them and here they are.
Finder or iTunes backup
If you're one of the people who don't rely on iCloud backups, then this method is the right one for you. You can use iTunes or Finer in iPhones that have the macOS Catalina system. If you use these tools as backups, all you need to do is connect your iPhone to the Mac or PC you used to save your data.
If iTunes doesn't open automatically, you can manually access it yourself. Just click on the iPhone icon, which is located in the upper left corner of your screen. Select the device you're using from the left-hand menu in iTunes or Finder tool. Click the "Restore Backup" option and you're all good to go. Your deleted text messages are magically back on your iPhone.
Using third-party apps
There are also a few third-party software tools that you can use to bring back your text messages. However, using these apps is a little risky since they are not usually free and there's no guarantee that they'll 100% work properly. However, if backing up your data didn't work, then these applications are your last options. The most trusted ones you can download are Wondershare Dr. Fone, Tenorshare UltData, and PhoneRescue.
iPhone 12 owners previously suffered from a bug
According to Mac Rumors' previous report, iPhone 12 and 12 Pro users complained that their text messages and message notifications were missing.
Some Verizon users were able to solve this problem using the Verizon Message+ app. However, it was not a complete fix for everyone since it doesn't work for non-Verizon users. The bug was fixed after Apple released iOS 14.2.1 system.
