Question: restore contacts from mac backup

Help please!

Had a 256 gig iPhone 7 which I backed up to my iMac. Had to switch the phone to a 32 gig iPhone 5s.

I need to restore Contacts to the iPhone 5s but when I try to restore iMac says I don't have the space on the new, smaller phone.


Anyway to isolate and restore Contacts? Thanks.

iPhone 7, iOS 11.3

No, backup is all or nothing.


But you would sync your contacts back with whatever cloud or mail system you use to sync them with.
