How to Retrieve WhatsApp Messages on iPhone

Can I retrieve deleted messages on WhatsApp?

I've deleted a crucial message by mistake on WhatsApp. I retrieved deleted standard messages from my iPhone with a recovery tool before. My question is: Can I also retrieve WhatsApp messages deleted from iPhone?

Since the emergence of WhatsApp, lots of people tend to communicate with friends and family through it, not only convenient, but also cheap. Just as the standard messages on the iPhone, you can also retrieve WhatsApp deleted messages from iPhone 5/4S/4/3GS, as long as you use a right recovery tool.

How to recover deleted messages from WhatsApp on iPhone

First of all, get an iPhone data recovery tool: Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (Mac). It can not only recover standard SMS from your iPhone, but also retrieve WhatsApp messages that you accidentally deleted. You can choose to recover WhatsApp messages by either scanning your iPhone or extracting iTunes backup, including message attachments.
