Have you ever encountered below situation?

I was holding my iPhone 6 and waiting for an important call for almost a whole day. But it didn’t come until I put down my Phone and went to the toilet for a few seconds. I must be the most unlucky guy in the world that I missed the important call when I just stepped out of the washroom. I called it back urgently. However, the worst thing happened, I accidently deleted it instead of calling it back! Such an idiot I am! Who can help me out there? I’ve waited for an entire day and this call is extremely important to me! Does anyone know how to recover deleted calls? Any ideas would be appreciated! Thanks a lot!

iPhone call log history contains all incoming calls, outgoing calls and missed calls.

Sometimes, people would like to save the new incoming call numbers to Contacts, or make a phone call which is missed to pick up earlier. So it is quite significant to have a call log backup so that you can recover the mistakenly lost or deleted history from it.
