Your WhatsApp Chat history contains a lot of data. From the messages, you send your contacts to the attached images and videos that are often included along with the messages. Losing this amount of data can be devastating especially when the messages and attachments lost are important to you and given that we use WhatsApp for more than just pleasure, there could be very important messages. The app itself gives you the option to back up the messages and their attachments either to iTunes and iCloud and if you have either one, getting the missing messages back should be a breeze.
But restoring your device from an iCloud backup requires you to delete the WhatsApp application and reinstall it. To restore them from an iTunes backup, you must restore the entire device which is time consuming, not to mention ineffective. If you’ve lost some of your WhatsApp messages, we have a solution that allows you to restore only them without affecting other data on your device.
