1.View the deleted text messages in the result list and retrieve what items you want.

2.Select Messages & Attachments. You can pick other types of files to be backed up.

3.Select "Messages" and "Message Attachments" in the file type window to scan. You may check other types of data for recovery.

4.Now tap Manage Storage (if iCloud Backup isn't turned on, then your chances of successfully recovering texts is going to be much lower).

5.Go ahead and select A backup from the cloud, then sign in with Google account.

6.You will see information about the backup — the most crucial being when it was last made. If it looks as if it will contain the deleted message, then it's time to try and get it back.

7.When the factory reset is complete, it reboots. Go through the basic setup configurations and choose Restore from iCloud Backup.

8.Sign in to your iCloud account to restore your backup. Make sure you select a backup that's old enough to include the deleted texts to restore.

9.With your iPhone connected to a Wi-Fi network, launch the Settings app and tap your name.

10.Connect your phone to your Mac or PC where you have the recovery software installed.

11.Go back to the main Settings screen and tap General. Then scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap Transfer or Reset iPhone.

12.Now, you need to effectively wipe your iPhone clean, which means you have to tap Erase All Content and Settings.

13.With that in mind, launch the Settings app and tap your name. Then tap iCloud.

14.Open your Mac and plug in your phone with a USB-C to Lightning or USB cable (older machine).

15.On the iCloud Storage screen, tap Backups and then select a backup that you think will contain the message that you want to retrieve.

16.Open Finder and locate your phone in the sidebar. If you're on a Windows PC or Mac with macOS 10.14 or older, open iTunes.

17.Make sure you switch on iCloud Backup. If you have just turned it on, then tap Back Up Now. You should also do this if it appears your iPhone hasn't automatically backed up in a while. It will only do this when your iPhone is plugged in, locked and connected to a Wi-Fi network.

18.Reset your Android to factory default settings: Settings > General management > Reset > Factory data reset > Reset. Make sure you've saved your important data and files somewhere, as performing a factory reset will erase all data.

19.Next, you have two options to choose from: Backup Then Erase, or Erase Now. Since your phone are returning to a state of old iCloud backup and filled with old version of your data, you may tap the former option to back up your important data first. If you have done this before, tap the latter directly.

20.It's worth making sure the toggle next to Messages is turned on. You should also tap on iCloud Backup. You might find that this is already turned on – in which case, automatic backups are already being created. If not, then you can easily rectify that.

21.Your iPhone will shut down and restart. When it comes back to life, go through the setup process and, when you arrive on the Apps & Data screen, tap Restore from iCloud Backup. Choose the backup you identified earlier in the process. All of your backed up data will now be restored.
