    iCloud automatically saves your iPhone text messages and other types of data, such as, device settings, app data, ringtones, and visual voicemails. You may get your messages lost by mistaken deletion, iOS update, failed jailbreak etc.

    Unfortunately, there is no easy way to retrieve only messages from an iCloud backup - you must restore the entire backup to your iPhone or another iOS device. This requires erasing your device and setting which may cause the data loss on your existed content. If you just want to read these messages on iCloud, or simply want to export them to the PC, iPhone Data Recovery or iPhone Data Recovery for Mac is the very way to go.
