It can be a very difficult situation for us. You lose some important WhatsApp messages on your iPhone running iOS 13/12/11/10/9/8/7 and even though you have a backup of the messages in iCloud, you can't restore the backup to get the messages back. Restoring the backup is simply not an option because of the simple reason that you have some new data on your device and don't want to lose it.
What you need is a solution that will help you gain access to the backup file and extract the WhatsApp messages without having to restore the whole backup. Luckily, this article will provide you with that solution and even show you how to use it.
