For what ought to be a simple activity, the procedure was too convoluted and time-consuming.

Fortunately, iOS 16 has made that easier now.

You may now locate the deleted texts on your smartphone and quickly retrieve them into the Messages app without having to worry about restoring a backup. Before you can retrieve any lost text messages, however, you must know where to look. How? Read on.

You’ll see a list of your most recent texts, along with contact information, the number of texts sent, and the number of days until they are permanently deleted. This will apply to both deleted individual messages and whole messaging threads. You must move quite quickly since you can only view (and retrieve) deleted communications that were removed during the previous 30 days.

To recover a text message, pick the thread or message by tapping on it. Then, click Recover in the bottom right corner of the screen. Finally, select Recover Message from the pop-up menu that displays. You may also retrieve all of your deleted text messages at once by selecting Recover All without selecting any individual texts.

You may need to scroll through your current texts a little to discover your recovered text messages, especially if they’re old and your inbox is clogged with a lot of fresh messages. Your recovered text messages will show in chronological order from when they were either written or received.
