Backing up your iPhone periodically through iTunes or iCloud is necessary if you wish to recover lost text messages. These backup files contain a comprehensive archive of your iPhone's data, including SMS and iCloud messages. There are a variety of ways to recover text messages from iPhone backups, including re-authorizing iMessage accounts, restoring your iPhone to a previous backup through iTunes or iCloud, or by using third-party apps to extract text messages from iTunes backups.

Method 1

If you periodically back up your iPhone to your computer, you can also restore all of your iPhone data, including text messages, from an iTunes backup. Plug your iPhone into your computer with the USB cable and launch the iTunes software. Click on the "File" menu, hover over "Devices," and select "Restore from Backup." Choose the backup with the desired timestamp and click "Restore."

Method 2

Since iTunes creates backup files of all your iPhone data in SQLite databases that are protected by an UID-derived key, so you cannot simply open and read text message files unless you first process the backup with a third-party software, such as a SQLite Application or an SMS extractor. A number of solutions can extract text message archives from your iTunes backup files. PhoneRescue saves text messages to your computer in HTML format and can be purchased from iMobie for $49.99. IExplorer by Macroplant costs $34.99 and allows you to recover text message backups as PDFs or TXT files. Finally, DigiDNA's DiskAid tool allows you to extract text messages from iTunes backups on a computer and save them as TXT or PDF files for $29.90. (Links in Resources.)
