Have you ever accidentally deleted a call from your iPhone and wished you could retrieve it? Well, you’re in luck!

In this article, we will guide you through the process of finding deleted calls on your iPhone. So, let’s get started!

Using Recent Calls

If you have recently deleted a call and want to find it quickly, the easiest way is to use the “Recent” tab in your Phone app. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Phone app on your iPhone.

  2. Tap on the “Recents” tab at the bottom of the screen.

  3. Scroll through the list of recent calls and look for the deleted call. Deleted calls are usually labeled with a red circle and a minus sign.

  4. To recover the deleted call, simply tap on it and select “Add to Contacts” or “Create New Contact” if needed.

Using the Recent Calls tab is an efficient way to find and recover recently deleted calls on your iPhone.

Using iCloud Backup

If you cannot find the deleted call using the Recent Calls method, don’t worry! You can still try to retrieve it by using an iCloud backup. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Make sure you have an iCloud backup that contains the deleted call data. You can check this by going to “Settings” → [Your Name] → “iCloud” → “iCloud Backup”.

  • If iCloud Backup is enabled, proceed with these steps:

    1. Erase all content and settings on your iPhone by going to “Settings” → “General” → “Reset” → “Erase All Content and Settings”.

    2. Follow the setup process until you reach the “Apps & Data” screen.

    3. Select “Restore from iCloud Backup”.

    4. Sign in to your iCloud account and choose the backup that contains the deleted call data.

    5. Wait for the restore process to complete. This may take some time depending on the size of your backup.

  • If successful, your iPhone will restart with all the data from the selected iCloud backup, including the deleted call.

Using an iCloud backup is a reliable method to retrieve deleted calls that are not available in the Recent Calls tab.


In this article, we explored two different methods for finding deleted calls on your iPhone. The first method involves using the Recent Calls tab in your Phone app, which is ideal for quickly recovering recently deleted calls.

The second method utilizes an iCloud backup to retrieve deleted calls that are not visible in the Recent Calls tab. Both methods have proven to be effective in recovering lost call data.

Remember, it’s always a good practice to regularly back up your iPhone using iCloud or iTunes to ensure that you have a copy of your important data, including call history. By following these steps, you can avoid permanent loss of valuable information.

We hope this article has been informative and helpful. Now go ahead and recover those deleted calls with ease!
