John Gordan talks about iCloud not having a backup feature. iCloud Backup is just a clone which I would have to agree that once you delete a contact or event, it’s gone. You cannot backup your contacts like Time Machine on your Mac.
More and more people do not backup via iTunes which would be the best way to restore but who wants to do that?
It would be nice to have a Time Machine feature for iOS.
