Can I Recover SMS Messages That Were Not Backed Up From My iPhone?

By | January 16, 2018

Today I completed a software update for my iPhone 7. After completing the update, I realized just how much data was lost (including important notes with financial information and images and videos of recent trips around Europe). Now I am desperate to try to recover the data deleted in the update. Is there any chance at all that I can recover something? These texts are most important to me. I am also missing many notes but that is less important to me. Can anyone please help? Any response is greatly appreciated!
