I update my iPhone to the newest iOS 11, but when I launch my wechat app, I found some wechat messages are gone and cannot find them. Is there any way to help me retrieve lost wechat messages from iPhone with iOS 11? Any suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. Thanks very much. iPhone 7, iOS 11
The question here is quite obvious: how to recover lost wechat messages from iPhone with iOS 11? It is quite annoying when important data like wechat messages are gone from iPhone or other mobile phone devices. Indeed, it is a good habit to backup your iPhone data via iTunes or iCloud to avoid data loss. Here, I have two methods to introduce to get back missing wechat messages from iPhone easily.
Method 1. Retrieve lost wechat messages from iPhone directly
In order to recover missing wechat messages from iPhone directly, what you need is the help from iFonebox,a professional iPhone WeChat Data Recovery software.
As is known that iFonebox is a professional iPhone WeChat Messages recovery tool which can not only recover missing wechat messages from iPhone or iPad directly, but extract and restore lost wechat data from iTunes or iCloud backup selectively. Also, within the help from iFonebox, data like wechat contacts, wechat photos can also be found. Here, I will mainly focus on WeChat Messages recovery steps.
Steps to get back lost wechat messages from iPhone with iOS 11
–Launch iFonebox. Choose Recover from iOS Device mode. Please connect your iPhone to the computer so that iFonebox can scan and analyze WeChat messages from it. Click “Start” button to begin.
–Scan WeChat Messages from iPhone. Click on WeChat Messages to start scanning. It takes longer time to scan if you have a larger data on your iPhone WeChat app.
–Preview and select deleted wechat messages to recover. After scanning, you will see all wechat messages from iPhone 8 and the deleted ones are in orange. Just choose the one you need and then, click Recover to PC button to get the lost wechat messages from iPhone.
Also, if you have an iTunes or iCloud backup for deleted wechat messages, you can also choose Recover from iTunes/iCloud backup mode to get back lost wechat messages from backup selectively via iFonebox.
Method 2. Recover lost wechat messages from iPhone backup directly
If you have an iTunes or iCloud backup for missing wechat messages, you can choose to restore lost wechat messages from iPhone backup directly.
Restoring from iTunes backup needs a computer. Firstly run iTunes on your computer and then, plug in iPhone. Once recognized, you can choose Restore Backup in the iTunes interface.
While restoring from iCloud backup is quite easy. Just do it on your iPhone. Go to Settings> General>Reset> Erase All Content and Settings. Your iPhone will be set as a new iPhone and when rebooted, you can choose to restore from iCloud backup file.
Remember that when restoring from iPhone backup directly, you may take the risk of erasing other new added data on your iOS device, so be cautious when choosing this way to retrieve lost wechat messages from iPhone with iOS 11.
