How to Recover Contacts on iPhone 6 (Plus)

This September, Apple brings us iOS 12 with lots of new features, which ensures us a new & better Apple experience. If you have no plan to get a new iPhone, you may want to download iOS 12 on your iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus to enjoy its new features. However, iOS upgrade is never out of risk, and you may get your important info like contacts lost during the update.

If you have backed up your iPhone to iTunes or iCloud, you can recover the contacts by restoring your device but that will erase the existed data on iPhone.
