Hello you guys! I have never come across a situation when my iPhone 6 would get attacked by virus. I searched for help on the internet and the only way to fix the issue would be trough a factory reset. However, I can’t lose the conversations between my client and I from SMS. Is there any way to find deleted text messages back? Thanks a lot!

It’s common that iPhone users use iPhone to send and receive messages and all the SMS messages are stored on your internal memory. But things often happen, you may encounter data loss due to various of reasons like virus attack, system crashed, mistakenly deleted, water damaged, broken or lost. Fortunately, you can recover deleted text messages because the messages don’t actually get deleted. All you need is a third-party tool, FoneLab iPhone Data Recovery, which enables you not only to read deleted text messages, but also retrieve them back to your computer within a few clicks.
