My daughter accidentally deleted the contacts from my iPhone when she was playing it this morning. I have made a backup of my iPhone in iTunes a few days ago. I'm wondering whether there is any way to recover the lost contacts from iTunes other than to recover all files from that backup.
Contacts saved in iPhone are important to us especially in the digital age. But due to different reasons, we are likely to lost all the contacts from iPhone just in a sudden. In this case, a previous backup of the iPhone in iTunes will be in a great assistant to recover the deleted or lost iPhone contacts. However, as you may know, every time when we make backup of iPhone through iTunes, it will automatically save the entire files in a unreadable format with which we can't selectively recover certain files but only the whole backup. What if we only need to recover the lost contacts from iTunes backup? Is there any possibility to do so? Fortunately, there is.
To selectively recover deleted iPhone contacts from iTunes, you'll need the help of a professional iPhone contact recovery program, such as iPhone Data Recovery. It provides you a simple way to scan the lost contacts and any other files from iTunes and allows you to selectively recover whatever contacts from the backup. Apart from recovering iPhone contacts from iTunes, this iPhone Data Recovery can also retrieve other types of data, like photos, videos, notes, messages, calls, calenders, etc from iTunes as well as from iCloud and iPhone directly.
