How do I restore my bookmarks/contacts without actually restoring from a backup?

    I just updated from iOS 9 to iOS 10 and backed up my iPhone to my Mac. I restored and updated my phone completely and want to start clean without restoring but I need my bookmarks and contacts at least.

    Is there any way to get those back without actually restoring my entire phone from the backup? I thought if I signed into my iCloud my bookmarks/contacts/notes would be there.

    Hopefully that makes sense.

    If you had your contacts and notes in iCloud and you had Safari iCloud sync enabled then those should be available to you when you sign into your iCloud account.

    Yea, I guess they were still syncing because they weren't there but they are now.

    I'm coming from iOS 9 and off top I do not like the Music app where are the ratings for songs, only hearts now to like and dislike? Ugh hopefully I don't regret this too much
