Check Call History on iPhone: Existing & Deleted Calls

iPhone Call history are quick and easy access to previous calls we have made, received, and missed. In short, they have become an integral part of our mobile usage. But the question exists, how many calls can the iPhone keep in its call history? The answer is simple, since the first gen iPhone 2G, iPhones have been storing 1080 call histories, with 180 of this hidden from the user. And only 100 most recent past calls can be viewed from the call history.

Part 1. How to Check Call History on iPhone using Siri?

Siri – the iPhone interactive assistant – can help you retrieve your past calls – missed, dialed, and received. To do this, you can follow the steps below:

  1. You can either hold down the “Home” button or simply say “Hey Siri” to bring up Siri on your device.
  2. To an extent Siri understands different words meaning the same thing, so you can say things like “show/check my call history” or “Show/Check my recent calls.”
  3. From the supplied list, you can tap any name to launch a voice call to the person.

Please note that your phone will have to be unlocked if you want to view everything, otherwise, Siri just puts up your last phone call made.

Part 3. Will iPhone Call History Lead to Privacy Leak?

Apple has made it known that its platform supports the synchronization of a user’s call history to make it convenient for customers who wish to return calls from any of their connected devices.

Why is this a concern? The issue is not that calls can be synchronized by Apple but the process through which this is done. We can admit that synching call logs is quite convenient especially for the users who need this feature but what about people who do not wish to have their call logs synched? Thus it has become quite a debate.

Call history are very personal and should remain private. We all make different calls for different reasons and some, we would not like anyone knowing about them. It is therefore imperative to find ways to delete this data and not just delete them, erase them permanently.

Conclusion: I can imagine an undercover agent needing to delete the calls he’s made recently. He/she has to delete these files in a way they cannot be recovered by any data recovery tool. That’s one of many instances where the power of Umate Pro would be useful. Always keep erasing private data from iPhone before syncing it to iCloud or iTunes, and your iPhone, iTunes,iCloud should be totally safe.
