When you lose your contacts from your iPhone, whether it is deleted by mistake or lost due iPhone damage or the contacts just disappear from your iPhone with no good reason at all, you will be desperate for a way to help you recover the lost or deleted iPhone contacts.
Sure, you may get back the lost contacts by restoring from iTunes or iCloud backup file, provided that you have one. The drawback is that restoring from iTunes or iCloud backup causes data overwriting or data losing easily. And there are a lot of third party iPhone Data Recover Software that can recover lost or deleted contacts selectively from iPhone as well as iTunes/iCloud backup. And I would like to share some of them which perform excellently in recovering contacts with you according to my experience.
1. Auntec iFonebox
iFonebox by Auntec is the most easy to use iPhone data recovery software and it costs you the least. It can recover contacts lost or deleted unintentionally from your iPhone, as well as from iTunes or iCloud backup file and it allows recovering the deleted or lost contacts selectively. iFonebox scans and analyzes the data fast. iFonebox supports exporting all the contacts from your iPhone or from the backup file to your computer for additional backup. Also, you can choose to recover the extracted contacts items to the device you are using. It supports the latest iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus and is fully compatible with iOS 9.
2. Wondershare Dr Fone
Wondershare Dr.Fone is the iPhone data recovery software that is heard by most people. I have tried the trial version, it does can export the deleted contacts items, and can export all the contacts items from the backup file. The data analyzing and scanning, frustratingl, is time consuming compared to other competitors. Worse still, it is the most expensive iPhone data recovery program over the market.
3. Aiseesoft Fonelab
FoneLab by Aiseesoft is also a popular iPhone data recovery desktop program. It supports up to 22 data types, but the data analyzing before choosing contacts to scan selectively is sort of slow and takes quite a time. And the interface of FoneLab is kind of confusing with the checked boxes. And I am not sure whether it can recover the contacts to the iPhone directly as the trial version does not provide the option of recovering to iDevice.
4. iMobie PhoneRescue
Phonerescue by iMobie is focusesing on analyzing and recovering the most important 22 types of iOS content and it support 3 recovery modes. It scans and exports iOS data fast, but there is a problem. There is no “Select All” option to select or unselect all the data to recover and I have to uncheck all the other data categories one by one if I want to recover contacts only.
5. Leawo iPhone Data Recovery Software
Leawo iOS Data Recovery can recover 12 types of data on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. It can perform a speedy data scan. Leawo iOS Data Recovery tool also has search and filter functions which is a great feature and it allows users to check the exported contacts items by name, phone number, email and home address. The draw back is that Leawo iPhone Data Recovery Software does not support the lates iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
