If you have successfully avoided data loss in the process of updating iPhone or iPad to the latest 8.4 version, you are lucky enough. As we all know the data lost caused by the updating itself is impossible to recover directly from the devices like iPhone or iPad, as the data was erased from the storage for good. However, it is hard to steer clear of data loss when you finished the iOS 8.4 updating, as iOS 8.4 is not a bugs-free version, you may suffer from data loss from time to time. And chances are, you always delete certain data, for example, delete contacts by mistake from time to time when you are using your iPhone or iPad with iOS 8.4 installed.
As you have just updated to the latest iOS 8.4 version, you don’t bother to restore your iPhone with the entire iTunes or iCloud backup file, for it takes quite a time, and worse still, it may cause data loss again. Third party software like iFonebox which is professional iOS data recovery software makes it possible to selectively recover lost contacts and transfer directly back to iPhone or iPad.
You can download a free trial version to have a try, but you need to pay for the full version if you want to successfully recover the lost contacts from your iPhone or iPad.
Now I am going to show how to recover the lost contacts selectively from iPhone or iPad with iOS 8.4 installed.
Step 1: Connect your iPhone or iPad to your computer (If you are using Mac, please choose the Mac version of iFonebox.) after you installing and launching the full version of iFonebox. Click the button of “Start” after your devices is detected. In this way, you have chosen the recovery mode of “Recover from iOS Devices”.
Step 2: Choose Contacts to recover by clicking on the icon of Contacts on the interface of data types list.
Step 3: Take a preview and do some modifications or editing on the exported contacts if you want before clicking to recover the contacts to computer for record keeping or directly to your iPhone or iPad.
