This is an unsuccessful update for contacts and photos are lost when updated to iOS 8.3. This user did not offer the information that he had an iTunes or iCloud backup for those deleted or lost contacts and photos. If he had one, he had two choices to restore his lost contacts and pictures after update to iOS 8.3.
The first method is to recover his lost contacts and pictures from his iTunes or iCloud backup, which means firstly, you have to reset and erase all contents from your iPhone and then, restore the whole backup file to your iPhone. When you use this method, you may lose other data like messages and notes. But if you don’t care, you can do this.
Another method is to use iOS data recovery software to help you extract and recover lost contacts and pictures from your iTunes or iCloud backup after update to iOS 8.3. If you use this method, you don’t have to erase any data from your iPhone. Here, I want to recommend iFonebox, for it is much more accurate and cheaper than others.
As is known that iFonebox is a powerful iOS data recovery which is able to recover deleted data like messages, lost contacts, or erased notes from your iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. Plus, iFonebox is a great helper to extract and restore lost data like photos, contacts from your iTunes or iCloud backup. Quite professional. What is more attractive for me is that it is supportive to recover deleted contacts and notes to your iPhone or iPad directly. Quite practical.
How to recover iPhone 5 lost contacts and pictures from iTunes backup after update to iOS 8.3?
I think the first thing you have to do is to download and install iFonebox. There are two versions for you to choose: Windows version and Mac version. Certainly, Free Trial Version(Win and Mac) is also available. Next are simple steps for you to refer to:
- Launch iFonebox. Choose Recover from iTunes Backup. You can connect your iPhone to the computer.
- Scan photos and contacts separately from your iTunes backup.
- Preview and select the deleted contacts and photos to recover.
Notes: after scanning, you can recover lost contacts to your iPhone 5C directly by clicking Recover to Device. But, you cannot recover lost photos to your iPhone 5 directly. At present, you can just restore your lost photos to your PC.
