How to retrieve disappeared contacts with iPhone Data Recovery for Mac

To function more user-friendly, iPhone Data Recovery for Mac provides 3 recovery modes for your selection in case that your iPhone couldn't be well-connected to Mac or you haven't synced iPhone recently. The following are the step-by-step guide on each mode. Select one that suits you best.

Mode 1: Restore contacts from iPhone 6s/6s Plus/6 Plus/6/5S/5C/5/4S directly

Mode 2: Retrieve missing iPhone 6s/6s Plus/6 Plus/6/5S/5C/5/4S contacts from iTunes backup

This mode is especially useful when your iPhone is lost or physically damaged. But the precondition is that you've backed it up on Mac.
