One of the biggest limitations in iTunes is that if you want to restore a certain type of data from the iTunes backup (eg you want to restore notes on iPhone), in addition to that type of data iTunes goes to sync all the others present in the backup. However, this procedure could overwrite all those files that have been inserted or created on the iOS device after the backup was created, with a non-negligible loss of data (photos, contacts, notes, videos, messages, etc ....).

We will consider the case in which they want restore contacts from iTunes backup ONLY on iphone, but the same procedure can be done to recover also and ONLY the other data such as photos, sms, videos, notes, etc ...
