Vos contacts iPhone ont-ils disparu ou ont-ils été supprimés ? Cela peut être frustrant ! Malheureusement, il n’y a pas de fonction iPhone intégrée vous permettant de récupérer des contacts supprimés (comme récupérer des photos récemment supprimées de la corbeille). La bonne nouvelle est que si vous souhaitez récupérer des contacts supprimés, vous pouvez les récupérer à partir d’une sauvegarde iCloud, d’une sauvegarde Mac ou d’un compte Gmail. Nous verrons comment récupérer des contacts sur votre iPhone, même sans accès à un ordinateur.
Important Note: While there are several free third-party software options that claim to recover deleted iPhone data, I recommend avoiding this option. Going this route means that you give this software access to your device and all of your data, which can put your personal information at risk. In the end, your best (and most secure) options are to restore from iCloud, email, or a computer backup.
Method #1: How to Restore Contacts on iPhone from iCloud
To use this data recovery method to retrieve your contacts, you will need to have access to an iPad or computer. You will also need to have an iCloud backup of your contacts from the time before they were deleted from your iPhone. Here’s how to restore deleted contacts on your iPhone by restoring your Contacts app backup from iCloud:
- Sign in to iCloud.com with your Apple ID and password.
- Click Account Settings.
- Under Advanced, click Restore Contacts.
- Click Restore next to the date just before you deleted the contacts.
- Click Restore again to confirm.
After the restore completes, you’ll get an email from iCloud confirming that your contacts have been restored to your Phone and Contacts app on all devices associated with your Apple ID.
Method #2: Restore Contacts through Gmail
If your deleted contacts were also saved in your Gmail contacts, getting them back on your iPhone is a simple process! You do not need a computer for this method, as you can sync your contacts via the Settings app. Here’s how to get back deleted contacts saved in Gmail:
- Tap to open the Settings app.
- Select Mail.
- Tap Accounts.
- Select the email account with the saved contacts you want to add to your iPhone.
- Tap the Contacts toggle to sync your Gmail contacts to your iPhone. (The toggle is green when enabled.)
Now when you open your Phone or Contacts app, you’ll see your saved Gmail contacts in the list. To learn more about your iPhone features and tips for backing up your data, consider signing up for our free Tip of the Day.
Method #3: How to Retrieve iPhone Deleted Contacts without Computer
If you have a recent iCloud backup of your iPhone, but don’t have access to a computer, you can still recover your deleted contacts from iCloud by erasing all data and restoring the recent backup. While this works if you have no other options, I’ve listed this method last as it is the most time-consuming and means that you will lose your most recent data (such as text messages and photos) from the time after your restored backup. This means if your last iCloud backup was three days ago, you will lose the last three days of data when you restore that backup.
In the end, I only recommend this method if a large number of needed contacts have disappeared and none of the above methods will work. If you do use this method, be sure to follow the steps in this article, which covers how to properly restore your recent iPhone backup from iCloud.
Method #4: How to Restore iPhone Contacts from Mac Backup
This method is similar to the one above, in that it requires you to delete all iPhone data, and then restore it from a recent backup. However, instead of restoring the backup from iCloud, you’ll be restoring your iPhone from your Mac backup via Finder. However, this option also has the same downsides to the one above, in that it means you will lose your most recent data from before your last backup. Again, I only recommend this method as a last-ditch option, if you’ve deleted a large number of contacts and none of the above methods have worked. To restore Contacts from a Mac backup, follow the steps in this article to restore an iPhone backup from your Mac.
I hope this article helped you to restore your deleted iPhone contacts! If you haven’t already, you might be interested in setting up automatic iCloud backups.
