All messages completely erased after I upgrade to iOS 11. I am so frustrated by this and really cross that I see there are enough threads about data loss that apple should have dealt with this immediately or put an extra warning out there before upgrade. Any help would be appreciated.
Is it really possible that apple have an upgrade that wipes all your messages or other precious data. Maybe the threads on your text messages go back years and have so much information you need for family, friends, work, diary etc. I can imagine how anxious you’re when you find that every single text message you have ever written/received is gone. Since they won’t come back of their own, you have to use a third-party data recovery program to recover vanished texts after iPhone upgrade to iOS 11. The best data recovery tool for the job is iFonebox.
The following are some of its features:
- Can be used to recover up to 17 kinds of data like texts, contacts, notes, call history, safari bookmarks and even third-party app data such as WeChat messages, WhatsApp chats
- Allow you to get access to any iTunes or iCloud backup file
- Enable you to recover only the data you need instead of restoring entire backup
- You can view all the recoverable data before extracting them
- Comes with a selectively restoration function
- It’s very easy to use and 100% safe
Please note that this method will only work if the missing data hasn’t been overwritten. To prevent overwriting the data, refrain from using the device as soon as you discover data is missing. Except for restoring missing iPhone texts after an update to iOS 11, it is a useful program that helps you selectively back up your data from loss. Sounds great, right?
Before we start the restoration progress, you need to download the program to your computer first. iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to install the suitable version for your computer. Next I will show you the specific steps to get lost iPhone text messages back after an upgrade to iOS 11.
Step one: Launch iFonebox
Connect your iPhone to the computer, in this interface, you’ll see “Next” in blue area, click it to continue. It’s necessary to enable the flight mode and keep the USB cable connected stable during the progress.
Step two: Scan data
It will scan automatically after you click the “Messages” icon, the duration depends on the amount of your data so it might take your some time, please wait patiently.
Step three: Get back data
After the scan completes, a list of messages will show up on your program interface. Now you can recover them, choose the items you want to back up and click the “Recover to pc” or “Recover to device”.
