If you just upgraded to the new iPhone X or iPhone 8, here comes a detailed tutorial to help you transfer and copy data to the new iPhone X/8.

Although we can restore our iPhone from iCloud to get back the lost contacts, it’s not recommended to do so because all your previous data will be replaced with the backup. At this moment, we prefer to selectively extract contacts from iCloud rather than restoring. The best way to go is to access your iCloud to view the contacts you need.

In this post we will offer you 2 ways to access and get contacts from iCloud: via the web browser or via one iOS data management tool named AnyTrans.

Part 1. How to View and Get Contacts from iCloud Online
