How to Recover Deleted Kik Messages or Chat History on iPhone
If you're searching for some easy and effective methods to recover old Kik pictures and conversations on iPhone, this guide gets you covered.
You might lose your Kik messages for various reasons, such as improper handling of your device, accidental deletion, virus infection, or file corruption. Whatever the cause of data loss, some proven methods offered in this guide can help you recover deleted Kik messages with ease. Before using any one of the below methods, it's worth mentioning that any operation you do to your device may result in further data loss. So, you'd better stop using your device from now on.
Method 1. Recover Deleted Kik Messages from iTunes/iCloud Backup
If you've previously backed up your device with iTunes or iCloud before data loss happens, you can directly recover your deleted data either with iTunes or iCloud. But note that both iTunes and iCloud don't allow you to recover specific Kik messages. Instead, you have to restore the whole backup to your device. This, undoubtedly, will erase your device and replace your current data with what's in the backup.
If there's nothing important on your device, you can follow these steps to recover deleted Kik messages from iTunes or iCloud backup. If you don't want to lose your data, just jump to Method 2 to retrieve deleted Kik messages without data loss.

Bonus Tip. How to Back up Kik Messages on iPhone
As you can see, it's not easy to get deleted Kik messages back. To prevent further data loss from happening, we suggest you back up your Kik messages regularly. Currently, you have two options to back up: using iTunes or using third-party software. But considering the convenience of restoring, we don't recommend iTunes since it doesn't allow you to see the individual data and export specific data. Therefore, you can consider this iTunes alternative - EaseUS MobiMover.
With this program, you can back up all types of iPhone data, including photos, videos, music, contacts, messages, and more. You can select to sync all files to a computer or copy specific files to a computer. Apart from that, it also allows you to download videos from YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and other websites. For more functions of this tool, you can download it on your computer to explore.
To back up Kik messages on iPhone:
Step 1. Run EaseUS MobiMover and connect your device to the computer. Select the "Backup Manager" pattern in the main interface. Then, select "Backup" to continue.
Step 2. MobiMover will display all the iPhone files that are available for backing up. Just select all files by ticking the box next to the "Select All," and then click on "One-Click Backup" to proceed.
Step 3. MobiMover will start to back up iPhone files to your computer immediately. Don't suspend the USB connection while backing up.
Once you've made a backup, you can restore this backup to your device when you need it. But note that this will erase your device and get everything replaced by what's in the backup. If you do mind this, just try to use "Phone to PC" festure to back up your device instead.
Those are all solutions to retrieve Kik messages on your iPhone. If you have made a backup, you can restore your device from iTunes or iCloud to get your deleted Kik messages back. If you don't have a backup, using EaseUS MobiSaver to retrieve data without backup is a nice option.
