“Setting the stage. Devices are iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, and iPad mini. All three using the same password and iCloud account. I deleted some of the contacts on the iPhone 4S and those contacts were deleted on all three devices. I did an iTunes restore on the iPhone 5 but it still has only the contacts after deletion.
1. Why did changes to 4S affect all devices?
2. What do I do to get the contacts to show up in the iPhone 5 and iPad mini?”
This is a post I read from Apple Community and it is clear that this user want to recover his deleted contacts across multiple iOS devices, iPhone 5, iPhone 4S and iPad Mini. In my previous article, I introduced how to sync contacts across different iOS devices and I think this article can answer this user’s first question. Why did changes to iPhone 4S affect all devices? That is because all the three devices use the same iCloud account. As to the second question, how to recover deleted contacts to show up in the iPhone 5 and iPad mini, I also have a way to help this user to get the deleted contacts back. The primary thing for the user to do is to recover the deleted contacts on his iPhone 4S.
