Two Ways to Recover Contacts/SMS from iPhone with No iCloud Backup

Data loss in iPhones has increased significantly recently, not just due to accidental deletion or water damage, but also because of system upgrades and bugs in the recent Ios. The first response to such instances is using iCloud backup to restore your data. On many iPhones, iCloud is enabled by default, backing up data without notice. But if you’re out of luck, you might not be able to recover your data through iCloud. It may not recover files deleted a long time ago, allowing for only limited respite.
