How to fix Contact missing from iPhone 11 Pro MAX, XR, XS MAX, 8,7 on iOS 13/14:
Fix 1: make sure that your other accounts sync contacts
Contacts can be associated with multiple sources (email accounts). It is likely that the “missing” contacts are still present but hidden.
In the Contacts app, tap “Groups” at the top-left. Do you have sources that are unchecked? Or In Settings/Passwords & Accounts, look for email accounts which have had Contacts turned OFF — turn those back ON.
One main issue why iPhone is not showing some of the contact name can be related to accounts you are managing on your iPhone like if you have a company account synced in iPhone please check if the account settings are up-to-date, many iPhone users face the same issue as the account responsible for sync the contacts was not able to sync with iPhone properly. You may have to change the sign in process as per the new policy.
Fix 2: toggle iCloud in your iPhone settings
Go to www.icloud.com and see if the contacts are in the Contacts app there. If not, you can go to Settings, and click on Restore Contacts.
You can also try toggling Contacts off/on under your iCloud settings on the affected device.
Please make sure that the contacts are synced from iCloud and contacts for iCloud, on the device, is not off.
Got to iPhone->Settings > iCloud > Contacts > Toogle On
Fix 3: update the iOS version
