Have no backup file at hand? The good news is that you can now use Jihosoft iPhone Data Recovery to recover lost WhatsApp messages from iPhone directly. Apart from WhatsApp, the powerful tool can also help you recover iPhone contacts, photos, videos and more.
– Turn on “Airplane Mode” on your iPhone after you lost WhatsApp messages. Any operation on it will generate new data which may overwrite the deleted WhatsApp messages and thus make them unrecoverable.
– You can also switch to the “Recover from iTunes Backup” mode to extract and recover WhatsApp chats from backup file.
If you have previously backed up your iPhone using iTunes or iCloud and are certain that the backup contains the deleted WhatsApp chats, you may be able to retrieve deleted WhatsApp chats by restoring your iPhone from backup.
