[Simple Way]How to Retrieve Messages from iCloud Backup

Last Updated on December 8, 2020 by Jason Ben

Have you ever deleted any important messages from iPhone by mistake? How do you usually do to recover iPhone messages? As far as I know, most people restore data from iCloud that has been backed up before.

Retrieve Messages from iCloud Backup

Yes, it’s officially suggested and commonly used by us. But the problem of restoring iPhone from iCloud/iTunes backups is that you must carry out a full restore of data and it’s impossible to view or retrieve just one or two messages that you want. Moreover, if you recover messages from iCloud, it will overwrite the data that is currently on your phone. Some activities that happened after the last backup will be wiped out and lost.

In this way, even though you can recover iPhone deleted messages, you may lose recent data that has not been backed up yet.

Recently I found an iOS Data Recovery that successfully solves this problem. It can help you to find the exact messages you need and retrieve it without influencing any other data on your phone. Really amazing!

I’m very confident to say that iOS Data Recovery is the best data recovery software for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch that I have used. It can recover lost data such as text messages, contacts, notes, photos, phone records etc. It supports data recovery not only from iCloud but also from iTunes backups and it is compatible with all the iOS Devices and all versions of the iOS.

iOS Data Recovery with so powerful function, is very simple to use. Even your parents can learn how to use it easily. Let me show you how it works.
