I am using an iPhone 6s with iOS 10.3.1. Last night before going to bed, I connected iPhone to power socket for charging during the night, next morning, I found at least half of contacts are gone. Any ideas how to recover contacts that were somehow missing without my knowledge or consent. Fortunately, I synced my iPhone to iCloud account, is it possible to recover only missing contacts from backup?
Actually, it can’t be a headache to find missing contacts if you have an available iCloud backup. Here’s the steps to retrieve contacts manually that provided by Apple:
- Go to Setting> General> Reset
- Choose Erase all Contents and Settings item
- Click on “Restore from iCloud backup”
