Phone numbers, birthdays and addresses of the right people have been collected for years and entrusted to the Phone for storage, so that nothing is lost, even backups are created. Despite this, gadgets manage to lose the records they need.

This does not always happen and not with everyone, but the problem is clearly not an isolated one.

Contacts are missing (disappeared) on your iPhone? This can lead to a decrease in your productivity if the skipped entries are important to your work or business. Fortunately, many other people have lost contacts on iPhone as well, and there are many ways to get them back.

Part 1 Most common reasons to the contact names disappear

The problem with the disappearance of contacts is noticed by many users of Apple technology, but the apple company does not officially recognize the presence of such a bug and, accordingly, does not try to find a solution.

Some believe that contacts are lost due to the dampness of the iCloud service. It is relatively young and has its own bottlenecks. When working with one or two devices, everything is smooth, and when additional gadgets and synchronization appear, errors and glitches appear, leading to data loss.

Others believe that such problems began after combining standard iPhone contacts with contact information from other apps and messengers. Not all programs work correctly with the phone book and may cause lost contacts.

With all due respect to Apple, it's best to entrust your contact information to third-party services. First, their developers have more experience in developing systems and maintaining them. Secondly, solutions from large companies are more versatile and will fully work on all major platforms.
