Question: How do I recover messges that have disappeared on their own?

I have an iPhone 6 and I sent message earlier to another iPhone and my message started showing up out of order and now I went back to the conversation and half of my messages from then have disappeared. I currently am using iOS 11.1 and this is not okay. Please if there’s any way help me. I would hate to have to request the conversation resent to me, and I need it for work. Thank you. From the picture i circled 1 and 4 bc those messages completely disappeared. One sent from myself the other sent from my partner.

clarissaj,


anonyme4321 is correct, the only way to recover deleted message is to restore from a backup.


However, you should also check Settings > Messages > MESSAGE HISTORY - Keep Messages. Adjust the time if necessary.


Also you should check your local storage on your phone. Are you out of storage? Go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage. You should have at least 10% free.


Good luck.
