If you’re an iPhone user, there is a chance that you might accidentally delete your WhatsApp messages. Fortunately, it’s easy to recover deleted WhatsApp messages using a few simple steps.

The first step is to turn on iCloud Drive on your iPhone. This will enable you to read deleted WhatsApp messages on your iPhone by using iCloud backup. However, before you can get started, you must sign into iCloud with the same Apple ID that you use for iCloud storage. You can also set a custom time to back up your messages.

Next, you must connect your iPhone to your PC with a USB cable. Once your iPhone is connected, you can start a Finder program. A list of files will be displayed. To select the Whatsapp icon, go to the left-hand list.

Next, you can check the date and time that the backup was made. For Android users, this can be done by tapping the Settings menu and selecting the notification log. There you’ll be able to see the date and time the message was last backed up, which is a good indication that the file is still available on the iPhone.

After checking the backup, you can then try to restore it. You can either use a different iPhone number or the same phone number. In order to restore the backup, you’ll need to enter the password. Afterwards, you’ll be able to preview the contents of the backup.

Lastly, you can try to restore your chat history. Using iMyFone D-Back, you’ll be able to view a list of your WhatsApp chats and attachments. These can then be saved to your phone. Just make sure to have sufficient iCloud storage to store the data.

iCloud can help you to restore your iPhone’s deleted messages and other content. But in order to do so, you need to have a recent iCloud backup. It’s best to backup your chats if you plan on transferring them to a new iPhone.

As with any software, the recovery process depends on the exact circumstances. While it may be easy to restore a backup that has been created before the deletion, it’s not as easy to restore the chat history of a conversation from another number.

When it comes to retrieving a message from a backup, the easiest and most effective way is to use a reliable data recovery tool. If you’re not sure where to begin, you can always try iMyFone D-Back or PhoneRescue for iOS. They’re free to download, and they’re easy to use. Alternatively, you can try UltData for iOS, which is a powerful data recovery tool that can restore your entire iPhone, including messages, photos, contacts, and other data.

Finally, you can try iOS Data Recovery. iMyFone’s software has an extractor tool that lets you retrieve WhatsApp messages from your iCloud backup. It is compatible with iPhones running iOS 7, and you can download it for free. Moreover, it also has an extractor that will let you save the data in HTML format, which is a lot easier to share.
