iOS 11 has added some interesting screen effects to Message app, and the newly released iOS 11.1 introduces over 70 new emoji like new food types, animals, mythical creatures and more. Most of you might want to send messages to friends to try these features, but only to find all contacts just disappeared from iPhone! Actually it’s a common problem that most iPhone 6/6s/7 users may meet, and there are some tips to fix the iPhone contacts missing issue on iOS 11 or iOS 11.1.
Try to hold on both “Home” and “Power” buttons for about 10 seconds until the Apple logo appeared. Then your disappeared iPhone contacts may come back.
Step 1. Go to Settings on your iPhone, and you will see your iCloud account, tap on your name.
Step 2. Scroll down and tap on Sign Out.
Step 3. Then sign in back to iCloud.
Step 4. Make sure you have turned on Contacts in iCloud.
Step 1. Open Contacts app on iPhone, or go to Phone app and choose Contacts.
Step 2. Tap on Groups at the top left corner.
Step 3. Make sure you’ve checked “All iCloud” (if you turned on contacts sync in iCloud), or “All iPhone” (if you didn’t turn on contacts sync in iCloud).
Step 4. Tap on Done and then check if the disappeared contacts show up.
Step 1. Go to Settings > tap on your name (your Apple ID) at the top.
Step 2. Tap on iCloud.
Step 3. Turn off Contacts if it is on (turn on it if it is off, and choose Merge), and choose Keep on My iPhone in case the syncing process removes all of your contacts on iPhone when you find there is no contact on iCloud.
Step 4. Turn on Contacts again to sync contacts from iCloud. Make sure you are connected to Wi-Fi or a stable network.
If you have made iTunes backup for your disappeared contacts, then this may can be helpful if you don’t mind removing all iPhone data with the iTunes backup files.
Run iTunes and connect with your iPhone > click on the device and choose Restore Backup.... under Summary option > choose the iTunes backup that includes the disappeared iPhone contacts on iOS 11 > click Restore button to start and your iPhone will restart when the process is over.
Have synced your iPhone with iCloud before contacts missing on iOS 11? Restoring iPhone with iCloud backup is workable to get disappeared contacts back if you want to replace all iPhone data with iCloud backup content.
Go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Content and Settings > type in your passcode > Restore from iCloud Backup > sign in with your iCloud account > choose an iCloud backup to restore.
Settings > switch off FaceTime > quit all app on iPhone > restart and Contacts app works > switch on FaceTime again and all disappeared contacts will show up. This method works for some iPhone and iPad users and it’s worth a shot.
