WhatsApp is the most widely used messenger app for many devices like: Android, Blackberry and Windows Phone. Known as the replacement of SMS, WhatsApp is now enjoying a rising popularity. The biggest advantage of this messenger is its ability of instant communication between different platforms from different countries. And most importantly, it’s free. You don’t have to pay for the message you send. More colorful than SMS, cheaper than MMS, no wonder it is being accepted by more and more users around the world.
If you frequently contact someone with WhatsApp on iPhone, it’s a smart idea to add a shortcut to the conversation. Watch out when you do this! Have you noticed that the “Add conversation shortcut” option is next to “Delete chat” option? Once you tap wrong, all the WhatsApp chat history will be deleted. But there’s no need to cry for spoiled milk. To recover the deleted WhatsApp message history, you need a WhatsApp Recovery Software, iPhone Data Recovery. It allows you to view and retrieve the lost or deleted WhatsApp chat history on iPhone.
