Many people may have important text messages saved on their phones. These messages may be the last cherished memory for lost people or conversions with our beloved ones. Therefore, it is desperate to lose these messages. Luckily, we still got chances to get them back. Next are several tips on how to retrieve deleted messages on iPhone X/8/7/6/5 for free.
Tip 1: Recover Deleted Text Messages on iPhone from iCloud Backup

Before the recovery, please make an copy of your important data such as photos, videos, etc. because this recovery method will replace all your existing iPhone data with the iCoud backup you choose to recover from.

If you decide to adopt this way to recover SMS messages from iCloud backup, make sure you have at least one backup of your iPhone at first. If you are not sure enough whether you have backed up your iPhone to iCloud successfully, you can go to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage to have a check.

Once you have found an backup for you to recover the messages from, you can restore them according to the following steps:

Step 1: Restore your iPhone to factory setting completely.

To restore iPhone to factory settings, go to Settings>General>Reset and choose Erase All Content and Settings.

Step 2: Set up your iPhone according to the prompts and choose Restore from iCloud Backup when you get to this option.

Note: After the reset, your iPhone will restart automatically and make you set up the phone again as if you are setting up a new one.

Tip 2: Get Deleted Messages Back on iPhone from iTunes Backup

If you have synced your iPhone to iTunes, you can restore deleted text messages from iPhone as well. However, this method has the same shortcoming as Tip 1: losing existing iPhone data forever! You will get an exact copy of an iTunes backup on your iPhone after recovering from iTunes backup.

If you insist on this way, you can connect your iPhone to computer and open iTunes as you did when backing it up to iTunes. Then tap the iPhone icon in iTunes and click Restore Backup... to choose an iTunes backup. After that, you just need to wait the whole process to be finished.
