How to Recover Deleted Messages from an iPhone 5S

Exactly as the rumors saying, Apple released the iPhone 5S in three colors - silver, gold, and space gray. The golden one has been widely argued. There are compliments and slanders. The key point is whether you like it or not. Overall, the iPhone 5S is essentially what people expected it to be. The great Touch ID and new features in the camera are enough to make it an interactive improvement over the iPhone 5, let alone the huge change brought by iOS 7.

Well, no matter you how much the iPhone 5S is improved, the problem of data loss still happens. As to this kind of problems, Apple only provides you with the way to restore the previous data via iTunes. That's to say, you can't get back your lost data if you don't have an iTunes backup file. Is it true? Apparently not. With an appropriate iPhone 5S message recovery tool, you certainly can recover deleted or lost text messages from your iPhone 5S.

Now, referring to the message recovery tool for iPhone 5S, here is my recommendation: Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (iPhone data recovery for mac) or Wondershare Dr.Fone for iOS (iPhone Data Recovery for Windows). This iOS data recovery software empowers you to directly scan your iPhone, to find all data on it, messages included. You can preview the data and selectively recover whatever you want to your computer. Just download the free trial version below to consider a go.

Step 2. Recover lost messages on the iPhone 5S

The scanning will be a little time-consuming, if there are lots of data (lost and existing one) stored on your iPhone. During the whole process, you only need to confirm that your iPhone won't disconnect and that's enough. Once the scan is completed, you can preview all messages in the scan result before recovering them. Then selectively tick the item you want and save them to your computer by clicking the Recover button.
