How to Recover Deleted Contacts from iPhone without Backup

Is there any way to recover contacts from the iPhone itself?

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 without iTunes/iCloud backup files: dr.fone - Recover (iOS).

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. You can also backup iPhone contacts without iTunes or iCloud.
