However, Apple's approach is actually not the ideal way. Apple's way to restore notes works from time to time. In some cases, it may not be accessible, acceptable, or advisable, because you may not manage to recover your contacts successfully via iTunes backup for some unknown errors.

  • The First Reason – As backups grow larger, restore processes take longer, there may be interruptions or crashes that result in data loss during the process, and backups tend to get bigger and larger.
  • The Second Reason – The iTunes backup restoration works, but Apple's way only allows you to restore the entire backup, not a specific part.
