If you like the above Bri & Bee lost contacts on your iPhone, but have a backup file on your iCloud, there is a way to retrieve contacts from iCloud. All you need is a third-party tool, named Fonelab or Fonelab Mac, which can help you to retrieve lost contacts, text messages, photos, videos, note, bookmark, call logs etc directly from iPhone/iPod/iPad, or from iTunes/iCloud backup.

Now, let’s show the way how to retrieve contacts from iCloud backup with FoneLab.

Step by step to retrieve contacts from iCloud

Step 1: Download & install the tool
Download the tool, then install on your computer. You will see the main screenshot as below, here as the Mac version for example.

Step 2: Sign in to your account and choose the backup file to download.
Choose the third recovery mode: Recover from iCloud backup file, sign in your iCloud Account. Choose the backup file to download. Wait for minutes until it is downloaded.

Step 3: Scan and retrieve contacts from iCloud
Choose the downloaded file and click Start Scan. After scanning, all the contacts will be listed in the left catalog. Double click any one and you can preview. Choose the ones you want and click Recover.

The above way can help you get lost contacts back. You also can try the other two recovery modes by yourself.

If you want to get back contacts from iCloud, you can use iCloud Data Recovery. It can scan your iCloud backup file and find the contacts for you. Learn how to retrieve contacts from iCloud. Besides contacts, you can also recover messages, photos, videos, call history, notes, reminders, calendars, voice memos, voicemail, safari bookmarks, whatsapp messages and other deleted data from your iCloud.
