Why Are Deleted iPhone Text Messages Recoverable?

iPhone saves text message data (along with MMS and iMessages) on a database called SQLite. When you delete a specific message, it just changes from “Allocated” to “Unallocated”, but leaves the actual message data sitting there. Some day, when you receive or send new texts, the space for the “Unallocated” entries will be firstly occupied and overwritten with new information.
