If new contacts you have created since upgrading to the latest version of iOS aren't showing up in your contacts list, there's an easy tweak to fix the problem (Part 1). Sometimes your contacts simply wouldn't show up because they are lost during upgrading to a new iOS (like iOS 7.1.2 and iOS 8.2/8.1/8). If this is the case, there's also a solution for you to recover lost iPhone contacts after iOS 7.1.2 update (Part 2).

Although it is easy to recover contacts from iPhone after iOS 9.3/9/8.2/8.1/8 update with iPhone Data Recovery for Mac, you'd better backup iPhone data before installing a new update.
