How to Recover Old Messages on iPhone

Normally if we choose to keep messages forever under Settings > Messages > Messages History, we can store all messages conversations on our device. However, recently some users reported that their old iMessages conversations disappeared accidentally in iOS 11 even though they’ve chosen it be forever.

“I keep all my texts from the people I regularly text and I was going back on a convo and wanted to see something they texted me a month ago, but i was scrolling up like I normally do, and it stopped at a certain point and wouldn’t load anymore.

Now I know I didn’t delete the texts before that point, and I tried with other people and it’s letting me go back up to a year. I tried force closing the Messages app and restarting my phone and nothing. 

What’s weird is the person in particular’s messages wont load after a certain point but all the photos/gifs we’ve sent each other still appear in the “details” button.

Any advice or people having a similar issue?”
