    So I want to find out if I can recover some snapchat photos and instant messages from around a month ago from my phone. I have an iPhone 7, and I've been using Snapchat since. I've been trying to find out online and I know someone managed to find a file containing videos a few years back. There's a lot of posts claiming if you download some kind of software it'll recover the messages and photos as simple as that although I'm not falling for that so easy. So basically I want to know if I can recover the snaps and messages and if so how? And if not why not if anybody knows thank you

    You want to recover them from your Snapchat account or your camera roll? If it's from your Snapchat account, then it cannot be done, even through iCloud backups.

    This thread should be in the Tech forum. I'll just tag AngryJellyfish to get this moved over there

    I've seen a lot of posts over the internet saying that they can be recovered from your device? The messages and photos and I saw a video showing someone finding a place for old snapchat videos so I know they're stored on the phone. I looked this up and found a lot of posts about how photos and messages can be recovered on iOS device I'm wondering if any of its true and if I could recover anything with the software? I also want to know when the cache empties so if it's been a month has it likely been overwritten? And thank you sorry new to this
