Technology is incredible as we are well aware of; it has helped make many activities easy and at our fingertips. The advent of smartphones was a massive milestone in electronic device inventions. Still, it can sometimes be frustrating when you seem unable to do something (especially when it should be easy) like seeing call history on your iPhone. I'll try to show you a couple of easy steps to view iPhone call history on your local device storage or iCloud even after deleting it from your device. I will also go into how to view others' iPhone call history using some spy tool just in case you want to investigate, or be a snoop or probably do it just because you can.

How to View my call history?

Viewing Call history from iPhone

First of all, let’s start with the easiest part of seeing call history on iPhone, which is immediately viewing recent call logs directly from your device call history.

  1. 1
    First, make sure your iPhone is on the home screen. If not, quickly press the home button to show the default home screen.
  1. 2
    Look to the bottom part of your screen and locate the “phone” icon amongst the four applications found there (it’s usually the first app to the left) and click the icon.
  2. 3
    A new screen will pop-up, which sometimes might be your contact list or favorite contacts. At the bottom of the screen (usually the second option from the left), you should see a time-like icon with the title “recent” written under it; tap the icon to view.
  1. 4
    You should see your recent iPhone call history, including FaceTime arranged in descending order. At the top of the page are two tabs, namely ‘All’ and ‘Missed’ to display.
  2. 5
    You can also tap the blue circle icon with the letter "I", which appears on each of the call logs right side. By doing that, you can get more information and further actions about the calls, such as time of the call, returning the call, adding a number to contacts, or even blocking the number.

Viewing Call history from iCloud

Like most smartphone companies, Apple synchronizes to iCloud, which can back up an iPhone call history for months with information like phone number, time of call, call duration, missed and ignored calls, and more. iCloud backup can’t be easily accessed without a third party application. Many such apps can easily retrieve your call history from iCloud, such as PhoneRescue, iSkySoft Data Recovery, Aissesoft FoneLab, etc.

  1. 1
    Download the PhoneRescue- iOS Data Recovery on your windows or Macbook and install it.
  2. 2
    Plugin your iPhone to your computer via a USB cable and then Launch the PhoneRescue software.
  3. 3
    On the PhoneRescue homepage, click on the "Recover from iCloud" and then the bottom's blue arrow.
  1. 4
    Log into your iCloud account.
  1. 5
    After logging in, select the desired recent calls, and click download. After checking the “Call History” the only option, click OK to download.
  1. 6
    Click the next button and check “only list deleted”, then select the call log to be restored.

Internet Service Provider

Another means of seeing call history on iPhone would be directly from your Internet Service Provider or Cellular Carriers. Cellular carriers Such as AT&T or Verizon can give you access to your call history from their websites accounts linked to your phone. You can get up to 18 months or more call logs from most cellular carriers on their website.

Apart from investigating or being a snoop, there are several reasons to want to view others' call logs. Before thinking about third party apps, you can view the iPhone call history of two different iPhone if they share the same Apple ID.
