Yesterday I updated my iPhone 5S to iOS 8 beta but found all the data stored on my iPhone are all disappeared! I am urgent to recover lost contacts from my iPhone 5S after iOS 8 upgrading. Of course, it could be much better if I can get back lost text messages, photos and other files at the same time.
It's common for iOS 7 update lost contacts, and unfortunately this bug extends to iOS 8 beta versions and may even on iOS 8 full versions. But don’t worry, it is possible to restore missing contacts after iOS upgrade. I will cover all the iOS 8 lost contacts recovery methods in this guide.
1. Restore iPhone 5S Contacts from iTunes/iCloud Backup after iOS 8 Update
Apple offers two ways to backup iPhone data, one is iTunes and the other is iCloud. And that means you are able to restore your files from backup whenever you want, but you must be sure that the disappeared contacts have been backed up.
Steps to recover contacts on iOS 8 from iTunes backup:
- Open iTunes and connect your iPhone 5S with computer;
- Right click iPhone and choose “Restore from Backup” once the connection is finished;
- Select the backup file and click “Restore”.
Steps to restore disappeared contacts on iOS 8 from iCloud backup:
- Go to Settings -> iCloud on your iPhone 5S;
- Login to iCloud and enter your account and password;
- Choose the iCloud backup file you wish to restore, and then the iCloud will begin to restore contacts.
Note: both methods will delete your current contact list on iPhone. To avoid that, please use iPhone Data Recovery program to extract iTunes or iCloud backup file to computer.
