With Enigma Recovery software you can recover iPod touch iMessages
iMessage is Apple’s instant messaging service, built into all iOS devices. This service enables you send free messages to other device users with iOS installed, including iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. To use this function on an iPod Touch, you need to be connected to Wifi.
iMessages is a great and easy tool for messaging, and is made even better by iOS syncing capabilities. By adding your phone number or iCloud account to your iPod Touch, you can sync your iMessages between iOS devices, meaning you can pick up where you left on in a conversation as you move between your devices.
However, there is also a downside to this, as automatic syncing via iCloud could result in an accidentally deleted message or a thread of messages being removed from all of your devices where you use the account to message.
If you’re worried that you’ve lost your precious messages forever, rest assured that there are solutions for data recovery that can help you. With Enigma Recovery software, you can scan your iPod Touch or backup file and find the deleted iMessages that you feared were gone forever. Our software quickly and secure scans and displays deleted data, including messages, contacts, notes, calendar events and more.
To recover your deleted iMessages from your iPod Touch, simply download our software to your Mac or PC, and follow the steps below. We also list tutorials for iTunes and iCloud backup files, so if you are in the unfortunate situation where your device has either been lost or stolen, it will still be possible for you to recover your data.

How to Recover Deleted & Existing iMessages From Your iPod Touch
Accidentally deleting iMessages is an easy mistake to make – many of us have accidentally deleted an entire thread of message from a contact when we only meant to remove a single message in the conversation. If you’re wondering if it is even possible to recover your lost messages, we’re happy to confirm that there are data recovery solutions available that can recover deleted iMessages.
Using Enigma Recovery software, you can securely retrieve deleted iMessages from an iPod Touch.

We have developed our software to piece together this data and present it to you in a readable format on your PC or Mac.
During the recovery process, your iPod Touch and data will be completely secure, as Enigma Recovery makes a backup of your device which it then scans for data, and will not damage or overwrite any data on your iPod.

How to Recover Your iPod Touch iMessages from iTunes Backup File
iTunes backup files are created when you connect your device to your Mac or PC and carry out a full device backup through iTunes. The file that is created is essentially a snapshot of your device at the time of backup, and is usually one of the first options for recovery when you have accidentally deleted data from your device since you last made a backup. iTunes backups can also be very helpful if your device is ever lost or stolen, as you will still have access to your important data, even though you no longer have your iPod Touch.
For this reason, it is recommended that you create regular backups of your device, to ensure that even if you find yourself without your device or accidentally deleted something, you will still be able to view and extract data from an iTunes backup file.
It is worth keeping in mind that carrying out a restore using an iTunes backup file will result in a complete overwrite of any data on your iPod Touch at the time. This means that if you have deleted iMessages that you need to recover, you will need to carry out a restore of all of the data that iTunes has backed up, meaning that you could end up losing data that was added in between your last backup and the point of deletion. Furthermore, an iTunes backup file in its native format is not an easily readable file, making it trickier for users to find specific data, eg a thread of iMessages.
For these reasons, a data recovery software such as Enigma Recovery is a useful tool to extract iMessages from an iTunes backup file, and display them in a readable order. Follow our step by step guide below to find out how to retrieve iMessages from an iTunes backup file.
You Will Need:
- An iTunes backup file
- iTunes installed on your Mac or PC
- The free or full version of the Enigma Recovery software
- A Mac or PC computer
How to Recover Your iMessages From iCloud Backup
iCloud is a great backup solution available for iOS users – with your device connected to Wifi and a power source, you can carry out both manual and automatic backups to the cloud of the data on your iPod Touch, including iMessages.
We recommend that you use the automatic backup function, as this will carry out backups of your device without the need for you to remember to sync your device. It also makes more it more likely that you will be able to recover a larger amount of data from an iCloud backup if you have deleted it from your iPod Touch.
If you have deleted iMessages from your iPod Touch, use Enigma Recovery software to scan and check your iCloud account for any available backups. Provided that you have a backup from the time when the iMessage(s) you are trying to recover were still on your device, our software will search your account and display all backups, which you can then scan for iMessages. Even if you have deleted iMessages from your iPod Touch, you can recover these from your iCloud backup, without the need to carry out a full device restore from the last available backup.
This process is completely secure and will not affect the data in your account or on your iPod Touch. Follow our process below to recover your deleted iMessages from an iCloud backup.
You Will Need:
- Your iCloud login details (we will never share these)
- An iCloud backup file
- The free/full version of Enigma Recovery software
