Basically I'm selling my iPhone 7 to someone else and hence I want to make sure that they never get to see any of my chat history. The conversations are getting saved to the iPhone and I heard if I uninstall whatsapp and factory reset my device, even then also some iPhone Data recovery software are able to retrieve my chat history. So, how I would make sure that my WhatsApp conversation are deleted permanently and gone FOREVER. Please help me!
