Obviously, this user deleted some contacts on his iPhone 6 and he wanted to restore the lost contacts from iCloud backup files, only contacts not the whole backup files. In fact, when you only restore contacts from iCloud backup to iPhone, it is difficult. You have to rely on a third party software to selective restore contacts or other data from your iCloud backup or iTunes backup. Keep reading here and learn more in case you need it one day.
What does a third party software mean?
When we say a third party software, we usually mean iOS Data Recovery software. Such tools can be used to recover deleted data like contacts, notes, messages and more from your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. Plus, to extract and restore data like contacts from iTunes or iCloud backup files is no longer a big problem. So here, as to solve this user’s question, I suggest that he use iFonebox to directly recover and transfer the recovered contacts to his iPhone 6.
