I believe many Apple fans and tech fans are itch to install iOS 11 beta and experience the brand new features. However, a certain number of users replied that the latest system has run into some troubles, such as text message gone after iOS 11 update.

Method 1: Undelete iOS 11 iPhone Message History without Backup
Method 2: Restore Lost iPhone SMS on iOS 11 with iTunes Backup
Method 3: Retrieve Deleted iPhone Text Message after iOS 11 Update from iCloud Backup

Method 1: Undelete iOS 11 iPhone Message History without Backup (Recommended)

Data loss with new update is frequently heard every year, and iOS 11 is no exception.

Method 2: Restore Lost iPhone SMS on iOS 11 from iTunes Backup

If you are foresighted enough and had backed iPhone with iTunes before installing iOS 11, things will become much easier. You can use iTunes to easily recover message deleted after ios 11 update.

Step 1:Make sure the iTunes is up to date on your PC/Mac to avoid unnecessary iTunes errors, and disable Find My iPhone feature. Then connect with your iOS 11 iPhone.

Step 2: Click the iPhone icon to call out Summary. On the summary interface choose Restore Backup.

Note: iTunes can only retrieve the deleted message history up to the day you made backup, and messages sent & received after iOS 11 upgrade as well as other contents will be erased from your iPhone.

Method 3: Retrieve Deleted iPhone Text Messages after iOS 11 Update from iCloud Backup

Similarly, iCloud also allows you to undelete iPhone message conversation after updating to iOS 11. Add a premise that you must back up with iCloud before updating iOS 11. To check whether you have a recoverable iCloud Backup, go to Settings > You Name > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage to view detailed backup information.

Step 1: Tap Settings > General > Reset, and select Erase all contents and settings.

The Bottom Line

Considering that iTunes and iCloud may wipe out part of contents and data from your iPhone, and the uncertainty that whether your desired information is exactly included in the system backup, you are highly recommend to try UltData to selectively preview and recover iPhone message after ios 11 update without losing other files.
