Hi, I’m using an iPhone XR running the latest iOS 12. I deleted my contacts by mistake and now I need a few of them. I never used iTunes or iCloud before. Is there an alternative method that I can use? Please help! Thanks in advance!
An accidental deletion is quite a common occurrence in our daily life. If you've synced your iPhone via iTunes or iCloud on your PC or Mac before losing your contacts, you can also recover your previous contacts by extracting the iTunes or iCloud backup. However, fortune is fickle. Sometimes you don’t have enough time to back important data up before the deletion. So is it possible to restore deleted contacts from iPhone XR without backup? To tell the truth, due to the special technology of iOS devices, it's not easy to retrieve erased contacts from the iPhone itself, but it's not impossible.
