[Simple Steps] How to Recover Deleted iMessages on iPad?

user reviewI think my girlfriend is lying to me and I suspect she texted other guys and then erased the conversation. Does anyone have a way that I can see the messages she erased?"

More Apple users tend to use iMessage to chat with other contacts. Over Wi-Fi or cellular network, iMessage allows iPad users to send and receive free messages along with text, photos, videos, files, contacts, links.

Even more interestingly, with the update of iOS 12/11/10, we can send money, Bubble Effect, Screen Effect, Invisible Ink, Stickers, Handwriting Messages and Digital Touch.

Because the cost of sending iMessage is close to zero, there is a flood of spam messages in iMessage. When we clear spam messages, we may delete important iMessage conversations.

Here comes the question: How to recover iMessage on iPad?

At this time, you probably think first of resynchronization with iTunes.

Please don’t try it if you're not sure that there are your deleted iMessages in the iTunes library. Because sync will put you at the risk that even using third-party software can't find your iMessage back. A new sync will overwrite all your lost iPad iMessages and make them unrecoverable completely.

What’s the correct way to handle the problem?
