How to Restore Contacts from iTunes
Apple is so considerate that it provides iTunes for us to backup iPhone data. By default, iTunes can automatically backup iPhone contacts and update it every time when you connect it to the computer. It is possible for us to retrieve contacts without iPhone because we can extract contacts from iTunes backup. All you need is a tool that can help you extract iPhone contacts from iTunes backup.
Here we would humbly recommend FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery. It is magic software that can restore contacts which includes numbers, names, emails, job titles, companies from iTunes backup. This software can browse and extract all files from your devices' iTunes backup, which includes contacts, photos, notes, videos, messages etc. By the way, iPhone Data Recovery supports iPhone 7, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6s and the latest iOS 10 fully.

Extract iTunes Backup to Restore iPhone Contacts
Step 1: Run the program
Run the program after installation. The software will load all available backups automatically. Choose one of them.
Step 2: Extract iTunes backups
Click "Start Scan" to let the program extract backup files.
Step 3: Preview backup files
Preview all data on backup files after extracting. To save time and efforts, you can choose "Contacts" only and click "Only display the deleted item(s)" to preview and mark down what you want.
Step 4: Retrieve contacts from iTunes backup
Click "Recover" finally, you can get contacts on the computer.
By the way, I highly recommend you to enable iCloud. For one thing, it offers you one more way to backup iOS devices data. For another, if you have enabled iCloud, you can go to https://www.icloud.com/ on a computer and click on Contacts to find back the lost contacts even when your iPhone is stolen/lost/damaged.
FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery helps to recover contacts as well as many other types of data such as messages, call history, notes, photos, bookmarks, videos, voice memos and so on. It supports recovering data from iTunes backup, but iCloud backup and iPhone itself as well.
