iPhone SE has been released on this Monday morning with same A9 processor as iPhone 6s and the identical size of iPhone 5s, but with a much lower price. If you have tempered to buy this brand new iPhone SE, you need to know how to transfer data on your iPhone to iPhone SE. Here in this tutorial, I would like to introduce how to transfer contacts selectively on your old iPhone to new iPhone SE.
Usually, one can only transfer contacts to new iPhone by restoring the backup file to the new iPhone. As iTunes backup file itself is not readable file and there is no way to particularly access the contacts saved to iTunes, you need to turn to third party utility for help. As there are dozens of third party iPhone data recovery software over the market, you may be get lost about which one to choose. I would like to recommend iFonebox according to my using experience, because it is fast and it recovers perfectly.
First things first, you need to make sure that you have iTunes backup file, if you don’t have one, back up your iPhone right away.
> Install and run iFonebox.
Note: iFonebox is available for both Windows and Mac, please choose the right version to download and install.
> Connect your iPhone SE to your computer.
> Choose the recovery mode of “Recover from iTunes Backup”.
> Select an iTunes backup from the interface listing all the iTunes backup files on your computer.
Note: If you cannot find the iTunes backup file which you want to export contacts from, please find the button titled as “Select more” to browse your computer to locate the iTunes backup file that you need.
> After you select an iTunes Backup file, you will be brought to the screen listing all the supported data categories.
> Choose contacts to scan selectively from the interface by clicking on the icon for Contacts.
> The data scanning and analyzing may take quite a while if you have bulky contacts storage, please wait patiently.
> After the data scanning process is finished, all the contacts will be presented in a list, please select all or whatever you need to transfer to your new iPhone SE by clicking on “Recover to Device”.
