How To Recover Contacts From Broken iPhone?

By | January 31, 2018

My iPhone 6 has a broken screen (the display works but has flashing going on at the top and touch is completely disabled). I am desperately seeking a way to get my pictures and videos off my phone. I cannot figure out what to do. I have tried everything I know how to try to get them off my phone. If anyone else has a solution for this I’d be so grateful.

You may lose your contacts for many reasons, one of the most common is that the phone is broken and cannot be turned on. I’ve had that experience too. Last year, I also lost my contacts of clients on my iPhone 6. I couldn’t contact my clients and my boss scolded at me. It was such a disgusting experience. If you happened to come across this situation, you need to have a backup of the data on your device, then you could simply restore the entire backup once the phone is fixed. Or you can use iFonebox to extract only contacts data from the broken iPhone. The following are just some of its most useful features:

  • Can be used to recover up to 17 kinds of data
  • Three powerful working modes
  • It has a preview function that allows you to see the detailed information
  • Compatible with all kinds of iOS devices including iPhone X
  • It’s very easy to use and 100% safe

In fact, iFonebox can do far more than regaining contacts if iPhone is broken. It’s an excellent data transferring tool which can help you selectively back iPhone data up in case of losing them. Besides, it’s also a good way to free up more storage space on your device for new data. Sounds great, right?

Before we start the instructions, you need to download the program to your computer. iFonebox has two available versions: Windows version and Mac version. Please make sure to install the right version for your computer. Once you have installed the program, next I will show you how to get back contacts from crashed iPhone.
