How to Retrieve Deleted Facetime Call History on iPad

Recover iPad face time calls with Enigma Recovery software

Just like text messaging, the manner in which we’re making and receiving voice calls are drastically changing. The rapid development of technology and increased speeds of the internet, has provided other alternatives to the traditional route of communicating via your mobile network’s carrier.

For example, making video or voice calls through the ‘FaceTime’ app is completely free when used in a Wi-Fi setting; making it especially useful for international calling. And coupled with the ability to synchronise an iPhone with an iPad, users have the added dynamics of a larger screen and better processor for video calls.

It’s no surprise then that some users – be it for personal or work usage – are becoming more reliant upon FaceTime calling on iPads. As such, the call history that’s collected on your tablet is just as important is it is on your phone. Whether it’s for legal reasons, personal house-keeping or even if it’s a shared device (at home or work), there may be a need to keep the information logged.

But what happens if this is suddenly deleted – be it by accident, intentional or even a faulty iOS upgrade? With no visible recycling bin to unearth deleted data, you’d be forgiven for thinking the information has been completely wiped.

However, with Enigma Recovery – a unique data recovery software – you’re able to scan an iPad and retrieve a variety of lost files. This is because, upon deletion, a file is never wiped permanently. Instead, the codes making up the file are stripped and its location is reserved for when a newly created file requires space. Enigma Recovery is designed to find these missing files and re-construct them in a readable format for the user – who can then decide what he or she would like to do with them.

How to Recover FaceTime Call History from Your iPad

Since it debuted with iOS 4 in 2010, Apple’s FaceTime app – available for both voice and video – has proven to be a popular alternative to the traditional method of calling. Using an internet connection instead of the phone’s network service, this inexpensive method of communicating has encouraged users to remain connected with friends and family anywhere around the world. It’s also given them the freedom to synchronise with a number of other Apple devices – iPods, iPads and Macs – to vary their calling methods. And it’s perhaps the iPad, due to its portability and large screen, that FaceTime is being used the most with.

And as with regular calls, FaceTime activity is stored in call-logs; allowing users to keep track of who and when calls have been made / received with. However, there may be unfortunate cases where some, or all, of your call history may have been erased – be it intentionally, accidentally or from a simple software malfunction. Asking your network or internet provider to retrieve call activity isn’t possible; therefore, a specialist data recovery software for tablet devices may be required.

Enigma Recovery works with all iOS devices, in particular iPads. And one of the main file types it’s designed to retrieve are FaceTime call-logs for both video and voice calls. It has the unique ability to locate missing file paths of deleted activities and reconstructing them into a readable format to present back to the user.
