Recover Deleted Call History/Log from iPhone

In the following description, we will show you 3 ways to view and retrieve the deleted call log on iPhone.

Part 1. Can You Recover Deleted Recent Calls on iPhone?

Yes, you can.

iPhone saves data in SQLite, which is a relational database management system. When you delete some data on your iPhone, the data will move from "Allocated" to "Unallocated" on the database, but not completely deleted. Surely, you cannot see the data on your iPhone.

However, when new data is added to "Unallocated", it automatically occupies the "Unallocated" section of the data base, thereby overwriting any data in that section.

For this reason, if you need to recover the deleted data on iPhone with higher success rate, you should bear the 2 rules below:

1. Do not operate your iPhone, like picking a call, delete new data, etc.

2. Pick up a reliable data recovery to view, extract and recover the deleted files on iPhone from "Unallocated".
