How To Recover Deleted Contacts From iPhone 6s?

By | September 29, 2015


I have an iPhone 6s and after activated it, I added new contacts to it except for those contacts synced from my old iPhone 5. However, today, my boy deleted some contacts on my iPhone 6s accidentally and I don’t have any backup for them yet. You know without contacts, I will feel insecure. So I went to Google and the result showed me that iPhone Data Recovery software can recover my deleted contacts from iPhone 6s. Thanks God, finally, with the help from iPhone Data Recovery, I got all my deleted contacts back to my iPhone 6s again. Here, I will share my experience to you.

I searched in the Internet and found that there were dozens of such iPhone Data Recovery, so I downloaded some of them and found that only iFonebox can help me to find those deleted contacts and recover all found contacts back to my iPhone 6s. Here are the two free downloading links: Win and Mac. iFonebox is a PC software, so you need to download and install it on your computer.

There are three working modes for you to choose: Recover from iOS Device, Recover from iTunes Backup and Recover from iCloud Backup. Because I have no backup for my deleted contacts, hence I select Recover from iOS Device mode. Next are my 3 steps to recover iPhone 6s deleted contacts.

  1. Launch iFonebox. Choose Recover from iOS Device mode. Connect my iPhone 6s to the computer so that I can scan and recover deleted contacts from it.
  2. Scan contacts from iPhone 6s. Click on Contact item to start scanning.
  3. Preview and select deleted contacts to recover. After scanning, I found all my deleted contacts and selected them, then click “Recover to Device” button, all lost contacts have been in my iPhone 6s.


It is quite convenient to use iFonebox to recover my deleted contacts from iPhone 6s. This is my own experience and hope it is helpful to you. BTW, iFonebox can also recover other deleted data like iMessages, notes, photos, calendars, reminders and more from your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch.
