    Apple Nightmare!!!

    Updated my iPhone the other night to 11.0.3 and I have lost loads of my contacts!

    Some have completely disappeared but mainly it's just the names and I'm left just with loads of numbers in history but I now no longer know who's calling me and I can't look anyone up where the name is now missing!!

    I followed some YouTube videos to no avail but some contacts now have 'maybe' in front of them but are incomplete!

    I've had Apple Support try to help through the Twitter messaging but they speak in gobbledygook and expect everyone to understand their techy speech and know how to navigate around everything uploading this & that!

    A simple update has turned into a nightmare, anyone else experienced this and found a way to get their contacts back or can help, please.

    Did you do an icloud back up before updating? If so and you have it switched on for contacts you may be able to restore from a back up.

    I think the iCloud is set to back up automatically as itís all enabled. Iíve since been onto the iCloud website and the contacts I regularly use are also not present and have disappeared!

    With some things Iíve managed to do some contacts have returned but with the word Ďmaybeí in front of them but they are incomplete!

    When searching for this issue on Google itís a widespread problem 😡

    Pay a visit to an Apple Store and get them sort it out?
    I'm no Apple fan, but I know they are normally annoying helpful instore
    Forever trying.

    Itís an issue in your settings.

    Sign in to iCloud

    Make sure update Apple ID settings has nothing next to it
    Scroll down to contacts and ensure itís ticked.

    The contacts are there yours just arenít syncing on this update.

    So it's all Verity's fault!

    She's probably high-tailed it over to Munich to serve Hacker-Pschoor Hefe Weisse for Oktoberfest!

    @OP/Seriously.... Good Luck re-syncing everything! Don't panic! I'm sure it's still all there - just needs r-connecting!
