The automatic backup files of WhatsApp chat history and messages are only valid for 7 days after last saved. You can’t find or restore WhatsApp messages that are more than 7 days old. To recover deleted WhatsApp Messages on iPhone from recent backups, you can simply delete WhatsApp from iPhone, then reinstall it, during this reinstall process you will be prompted either to restore whatsapp messages from the backup or not.
