How To Find Hidden Text Messages On iPhone

If you suspect your partner is cheating on you, one of the first places you might look to snoop around is their iPhone. After all, it's the easiest way to keep in touch with someone these days. But what if your partner is savvy enough to have hidden their text messages from you?

Luckily, there are a few ways you can find hidden messages on iPhone, even if your partner has deleted them from their phone.

1. Check Their iCloud backups

One way to find hidden text messages on iPhone is to check for any iCloud backups that may have been created on their phone. To do this, you'll need to know their Apple ID and password. Once you've logged into their account, go to Settings > iCloud > Backup. If any backups have been made, they will be listed here.

If you see a backup that was created on or around the time you think your partner was cheating on you, it's worth taking a closer look. To do this, go to icloud.com and sign in with your Apple ID and password. Once you're logged in, click on "All Devices" at the top of the page and select the device you want to look at.

You should now see a list of all of the backups made for the device. If the backup you're looking for is there, click on it and then click "Download" at the bottom of the page. This will download a copy of the backup to your computer.

Once the backup has been downloaded, open it up and take a look through the contents. If your partner has been cheating on you, there's a good chance you will find incriminating evidence in the text messages section.

2. Use an iPhone Tracking App

Another way to find hidden messages on iPhone is by using a tracking app like mSpy or FlexiSPY. These apps allow you to track everything that happens on someone's phone, including text messages.

If you suspect your partner is cheating on you, one of the best ways to find out is by using a spy app like mSpy. This app allows you to track everything that happens on someone's iPhone, including messages.

mSpy is a great option because it's very easy to use. You don't need to be a tech expert to set it up, all you need is the person's phone number and iCloud login details.

Once you have installed the app on their phone, it will begin recording all of their activity. This includes text messages, calls, GPS locations, and more. You can then log into your mSpy account online and view all of the data that has been collected.

This is a great way to get concrete evidence that something is going on behind your back. If you see they have been sending and receiving text messages with someone else, you can be sure that they are up to no good.

mSpy is also a great way to keep track of your children's activity. If you are worried about them being cyber-bullied or talking to strangers online, mSpy can help put your mind at ease.

To use one of these apps, you first need to install it on your partner's phone. Once it's installed, you can log in to your account online and see all of the messages they have sent and received.

3. Use an iPhone Backup Extractor Tool

If your partner has deleted a message from their iPhone, there is still a chance you can find it by using an iPhone backup extractor tool like iBackup Extractor or Elcomsoft Phone Breaker. These tools allow you to extract data from iTunes or iCloud backups, including text messages.

If you think your partner has deleted their messages to hide them from you, there is still a chance you can find them. This is because when you delete something from your iPhone, it doesn't actually get deleted right away. Instead, it gets moved to a hidden folder where it stays for a while before being permanently deleted

To use one of these tools, you first need to download it onto your computer. Then, connect your iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes. Once iTunes has loaded, select your iPhone in the sidebar and click on "Summary" in the main window. Next, click on "Back Up Now" and wait for the backup to finish.

Once the backup is finished, close iTunes and launch iBackup Extractor or Elcomsoft Phone Breaker. Select your iPhone backup file from the list and click "Extract". This will extract all of the data from the backup, including messages.

For this reason, you must consult with a lawyer before installing any spy apps.
