The second option can be done if you have ever synced your iPhone to iTunes before.

If you’re device is ever lost, stolen or badly damaged, Enigma Recovery can also help get your data back via your device backup created in iTunes. In addition to this, it can recover deleted files straight from the device and restore deleted data back to any iOS Apple device, through the Restore app.

It is the most recommended iPhone data recovery solution as it copies rather than extracts data from your iPhone, ensuring no damage to your device or its contents. There are three common ways in which the call history can be deleted from your iPhone:

  • After an iOS software update
  • By accidentally pressing delete
  • By deleting a number thinking it is no longer needed, and later realising that it is!
