"I deleted some important messages on WhatsApp and want to recover them. How can I undo my mistake? I’m using iPhone 13 Pro and iOS 15".
WhatsApp now is the hottest instant messaging app in the world, with beyond 1 billion active users. Many iPhone users tend to use WhatsApp to chat with families, friends, and workmates via text, images, voice, etc. What if you accidentally deleted WhatsApp chats from your iPhone?
Don’t worry. Below you’ll find effective ways to recover deleted WhatsApp messages from iPhone/iPad (iOS 15/14 supported). Read on and choose the method that’s best for you.
Way 1. Recover Deleted Messages from WhatsApp iCloud Backup
WhatsApp doesn’t store chat history on its servers. Nevertheless, it provides an iCloud backup feature to help iPhone users back up and restore chat history. If you have made a manual or automatic backup of your chats and media to iCloud, you can easily recover WhatsApp messages from iCloud backup.
- Head over to WhatsApp Settings > Chats > Chat Backup to verify that an iCloud backup exists.
- Delete and reinstall WhatsApp from the App Store. Then verify your phone number that is used for backing up.
- Follow the on-screen prompts and tap “Restore Chat History” to recover deleted WhatsApp messages from iCloud backup.
Way 2. How to Restore WhatsApp Chat History from iPhone Backup
If you have an iTunes/iCloud backup of your iPhone before the time you deleted the WhatsApp messages, you may be able to recover them by restoring your iPhone from the previous iPhone backup. Check how to restore your device from iTunes or iCloud backup from Apple Stuðningur. Remember you will lose any new data you have added since the backup you’re using to recover WhatsApp chats.
Way 3. How to Retrieve Deleted WhatsApp Messages Directly from iPhone
