The World's #1 iOS & Android Data Recovery Software
Highest recovery rate in the industry
I accidentally deleted several contacts from my iPhone 6s, and forget to back them up with iTunes. Now I need them urgently, but I've heard that there is no way to recover deleted data on an iPhone except through backup. Is that really? Can I recover my iphone contacts without any backup? Please help! Thanks in advance.
The saying that there is no way to recover iPhone contacts without iTunes or iCloud backup is absolutely wrong. Due to the special technology of iOS devices, it's very hard to recover deleted iphone contacts directly from the iPhone itself, but it's not impossible. There is indeed such a program that enables you to recover contacts from iPhone SE/6s/6/5s/5c/5/4s/4/3GS without iTunes/iCloud backup files: Dr.Fone - iPhone Data Recovery.
Note: If you've synced your iPhone with iTunes or iCloud on your PC or Mac before losing your contacts, you can also recover your previous contacts by extracting the iTunes or iCloud backup.
