How to Recover WhatsApp Chat History on iPhone
Problem: Can I recover deleted WhatsApp chat conversations on my iPhone 4S?
I've used WhatsApp to chat with my friends for quite a long time, and I like this way. Yesterday, I accidentally deleted the whole chat history. I searched a lot of solutions online.
