How one can get back deleted texts on iPhone 

Remember, once you access an old backup, you reset your iPhone to old settings. This may lead to a number of issues. In case you’re willing to risk it, follow these steps to see if you’ve got a backup available:

Select your Apple ID

Tap iCloud > Manage Storage > Backups

Head to Settings > General > Reset

Select Erase All Content and Settings

Tap Restore from iCloud Backup

Sign up together with your Apple ID and tap Select backup

Your phone will revert to its former version. Now you may start searching through old texts. 

This method won’t work when you’ve never backed up your iPhone on iCloud.
