iCloud cloud service, which first appeared in iOS 5, has become a staple of every Apple device by 2022. It is unlikely that any of the owners can imagine an iPhone, iPad or Mac without iCloud. It’s one of the most convenient ways to sync photos, contacts, calendar, notes, passwords and data from other apps on multiple devices to the same account. Well, it’s not even worth talking about creating backups. Most users who set it up once know for sure that in case of losing a smartphone or tablet they can recover all data new iPhone or iPad.

Apple recently revamped the iCloud web interface and added some useful features. Now you can recover accidentally deleted contacts, Calendar, Files and Bookmarks directly from iCloud. We understand if these tools work and how to use them.
Restore contacts via iCloud
One of the most important features that has appeared in iCloud is the ability to recover an accidentally deleted contact. The recovery comes with limitations in the style of Apple. If you’ve deleted contacts in bulk, you can’t undo and return any of them. You need to restore them all from the archive and then start cleaning again.
Why couldn’t it be possible restore a specific contact, is completely incomprehensible. But we have what we have. In addition, you will have to suffer a little to create such an archive. In order for my iCloud to start creating archives, I had to:
- Create a contact.
- Go to the recovery page.
- Understand that the archive is not created, return to contacts and delete the created entry.
- I went back to the restore page and only then saw that iCloud had created the first archive.
It is possible that banal deleting one of your existing contacts will help you, but only the method described above helped me. Therefore, if you deleted contacts and the archive was not created, try to start archiving according to the instructions above. What it is: a bug or a principle of operation, it’s impossible to say for sure, but it works very strangely.
Therefore e.g Restore contacts to iCloud You must do the following:
- Switch to iCloud for the web.
- Create a recovery archive in the same way I described above.
- Click on the twelve dots rectangle in the top right corner and go to the “Data Recovery” section.
- Open the “Restore contacts” block.
- Here you can see a list of previously created archives. Click the Restore button opposite the one you want and wait for the contacts to appear again in the appropriate application.

This will create a new archive with the contacts you have now. If you have carried out a mass cleanup of entries in the phone book and do not want to repeat them, then after the restoration you can simply copy the desired contact onto a piece of paper, restore the previous list without the desired contact and enter it manually. These are crutches, of course, but it’s a lot quicker than cleaning out the phone book again.
Restore Calendar to iPhone
Same principle Restore calendar via iCloud. But no matter what I did, I couldn’t create archives. I added entries in several different calendars, including the general ones, but I didn’t manage to get the archive to restore. Simultaneously in Web version of iCloud According to Apple, the creation is automatic.

I’ll immediately notice that I’ve turned sync on and off and even logged out of my account. All for free. If you found a way to create an archive to restore the calendar, write in the comments. Let’s try to supplement this material. But for me personally, calendars are not as valuable as contacts. And the latter worked correctly.
How to recover files from iCloud
But with help Web version of iCloud Not only can you recover contacts and calendars, you can Files from iCloud Drive and Safari bookmarks. Of course, all these options must be activated in the settings of your iPhone or iPad in the iCloud section. Otherwise, sync will not happen and you will lose the deleted file or bookmark permanently.
Truth, Recover files from iCloud Drive I failed no matter what device I deleted it from. First of all, you should remember the 30-day limit after which iCloud will permanently delete the file. And then I noticed the following sentence:
Beginning with iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra, deleted files are available in the respective app’s Recently Deleted folder. These files can be recovered from iCloud Drive. You can also do this on the device.
It turns out that Apple is immediately offering owners of devices on these operating systems and newer to switch immediately Trash in iCloud Drive to recover files. But I tried to delete the document from iCloud Drive and with Windowsbut there was also no effect even though the file was safe in the recently deleted file.

Fortunately, there was no such problem with bookmarks. to Restore bookmarks via iCloudyou need to do the following:
As you can see, everything is quite simple and works without problems, unlike files and calendars. I was also most pleased that dances with tambourines were not necessary, as in the case of re-establishing contacts. It’s good that such functionality has appeared, but I really want Apple to simplify it as much as possible. While an inexperienced user might not figure it out. Somehow it doesn’t look Apple’s way.
