You can recover any message deleted less than 30 days ago.

Unfortunately, if a message was deleted more than 30 days ago, it will automatically be deleted forever.

The good news is that recovering messages is extremely easy.

First, make sure you’re using the latest version of iOS: the feature only works on iOS 16.

To check, go to Settings > General > Software update.

Once you’re running iOS 16, open your Messages app.

Now tap on the Edit button on the top left corner and look for View Recently Deleted.

Alternatively, Recently Deleted may appear in the top left of the Filters section if you have enabled that.

In this section you can see all the SMS you removed in the last month.

Next to each message you will see an expiry date indicating when the SMS will be deleted forever.

So if you’re running out of time, consider recovering.

If you’re not sure if you want to permanently delete a message, simply restore it and then delete it again to reset the timer.

To restore a message, select it, then tap Restore in the bottom right.

Alternatively, press the Delete key if you want the text to be scrubbed forever.

There are also Restore All and Clear All buttons if you want to quickly perform a bulk action.

If you can’t see recently deleted messages, it means you haven’t moved any messages to the trash in the last 30 days.

Secret iMessage Codes

Recovering deleted text messages isn’t the only iMessage trick you need to know.

iMessage has many advantages, but a little-known advantage is the choice of secret effect codes.

All you have to do is open a chat and then type “pew pew”.

You will notice that the screen is filled with lasers – both for you and for the recipient.

It rains confetti while sending the message “Congratulations”.

And the same works if you write “Congratulations” in another language as well.
