Whatsapp is one of the most used and popular messaging apps across the globe. Whether a professional, student, entrepreneur or businessman, whatsapp has been the go to messaging app of people who like to communicate to others. But just like any other apps, whatsapp may also consume large space in our storage. Hence, we tend to delete some of our messages to clear up our space. But in case you need to retrieve messages in your whatsapp, you need to know how to do so. If you are an iPhone user, you are in the right place, this article will go through some steps on how you can retrieve deleted or missing whatsapp messages from iPhone.
One of the effective ways to retrieve your whatsapp messages is through your iCloud backup. If you’re able to link your whatsapp to your iCloud, then there is a big chance for you to get back your data.
- First, you need to go to WHatsApp > Settings > Chats > Chat Backup. You need to check whether or not the auto backup is turned on. You can also check the last backup date.
- If you see that the backup setting in turned on and available, the next step is to delete and reinstall whatsapp from the App Store. You have to confirm and verify your iPhone number and follow the on-screen prompts to restore your chat history in WhatsApp.
- If you’re not able to see some available backup to restore your messags, or the last backup date, it means that you could still lose some more recent messages.
If iCloud backup didn’t work, the next method that you could consider is the use of iTunes backup to help you retrieve your Whatsapp.
