Does iCloud back up deleted text messages? It depends on the situation.

Situation 1: iCloud backup deleted text messages.

This usually happens when you have backed up your text messages before deleting them. At this point, iCloud has already backed up your deleted text messages. You can restore the deleted iPhone messages directly from iCloud.

Step 1. Go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings option.
