2 Ways to Recover Deleted WhatsApp Videos on iPhone XS/XR/X/8/7/6s

Accidentally deleted video clips from Whatsapp conversation on iPhone? For WhatsApp users, losing your chat history, such as messages, videos, attachments, etc can be a pain.

In previous article, we have covered in detail how to recover deleted messages from WhatsApp on iPhone. This time we will focus on 2 practical solutions to recover deleted WhatsApp videos on iPhone without backup. Keep reading now.

Method 1. Manually Recover Deleted WhatsApp Videos on iPhone within 30 Days

If you have an iPhone, whenever you receive media from somebody on WhatsApp, it isn't loaded automatically. The media will be blurred with a download symbol on it. In order to view it, you must tap the download symbol. After downloading a photo or video, it will be saved to the "WhatsApp" and "Camera Roll" folders in Photos (and also "Video" if a video).

After downloading and viewing received photos and videos in WhatsApp messages, you can delete them from your Photos app without fear. First of all, by default, media doesn't really get deleted right away in the Photos app — it gets moved to the "Recently Deleted" folder where it will sit for 30 days before disappearing for good.

To be able to redownload media from WhatsApp, the media or thread in question must not have been deleted from within WhatsApp, otherwise, you're out of luck. If it's still there, find the media in the chat, tap on it to expand it, tap the share button in the bottom left, then select "Save." You'll find the image or video back in the Photos app on your iPhone.
