How to Recover Deleted Text Messages from iPhone 5s
Texting messages with your new iPhone 5s is a really good experience, we can not only send SMS or MMS with iPhone 5s, but also iMessages with it. Nowadays, iPhone users may have already get used to deliver all kinds of information via text messages, and sometimes we will have to clean up the message box to free up the storage space. However, after we delete the messages, we may regret as we find some messages are still useful. And the text messages cannot be recovered from iPhone 5s directly, we have to use iTunes or iCloud to get the messages back.
If you have created a backup of iTunes for your iPhone 5s, you will be able to recover text messages from iPhone with ease, and you will only need 3 simple steps:
1. Plug iPhone into computer via the USB cable. iTunes will launch automatically, if not, you should open it manually.
2. Click “File > Device > Restore from Backup”, and choose the iPhone backup in the pop-up window.
3. iTunes will start to restore the data in the backup to your iPhone 5s. Sometimes it will ask you to enter your Apple ID to accomplish the restoring process.
This is the fastest way to restore deleted text messages from iPhone 5s. But you will probably get other data back to your iPhone 5s after restoring it. The backup you created with iTunes will contain all the important data of your iPhone, and when you restore your iPhone 5s, you will get the data that may be out of date back to your iPhone. If you don’t have backup in your iTunes, you may want to try iCloud.
If you open iCloud on your iPhone 5s, it will upload the latest information in your iPhone 5s to the cloud over Wi-Fi connection. You only need to go to Settings on your iPhone and then tap iCloud > Restore iPhone. Note that if you restore your iPhone with iCloud, it will require you to erase all the contents and settings on your iPhone, if you have files that are not purchased from iTunes, you may not be able to find the files back.
iTunes and iCloud both backup the data in your iPhone as a whole so you can only get all the data in the iPhone backup together back to your iPhone. If you want to recover deleted text messages from iPhone 5s separately, you may need third party iPhone data recovery software. I would like to recommend Leawo iOS Data Recovery to you because this software is helpful and easy-to-use. It is used for recovering lost files from iDevices and iTunes backups. The software also enables users to backup iPhone, iPad and iPod touch files to computer. Leawo iOS Data Recovery will export the recovered text messages to CSV and HTML files so that you can view the files with your computer.
