Lightbulb 3 Methods to Backup Contacts on iPhone X/8/7/6s/6 Plus

If you are using an iPhone, it’s a good idea to regularly backup your data such as contacts, to survive from unexpected data loss caused by iOS upgrade, jailbreak, or even iPhone broke, lost or stolen. Have no idea of how to backup contacts on iPhone? Just refer to the following 3 methods.

Method 1: Backup iPhone Contacts with iTunes

iTunes can not only help you organize music, movies, and TV shows, but also enable you to back up your iPhone data, including contacts. Here are the simple steps regarding how to backup iPhone contacts with iTunes.
  1. Connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes. If you don’t have iTunes installed, you can download it from Apple.com.
  2. Click the small iPhone icon when it appears, then tap “Back Up Now” in the “Summary” section.
  3. Wait for iTunes to create a complete backup of your iPhone, including your contacts.

Method 2: Backup iPhone Contacts with iCloud

iCloud is a cloud storage and backup service provided by Apple Inc. You can easily sync and store data like contacts, photos etc. on iPhone running iOS 5 or later. The following steps will introduce how to sync iPhone contacts via iCloud.
  1. On your iPhone, go to “Settings” and tap on your Apple ID. If you are not signed in, enter your Apple ID and password, then tap “Sign In”.
  2. Click “iCloud” and slide “Contacts” to the On position. Tap “Merge” if prompted.

Backing up contacts on iPhone with iTunes or iCloud is quick and easy. Please note that the two Apple methods won’t allow you view contacts in the backup files unless you restore your iPhone with the iTunes or iCloud backup you’ve made. In comparison, Gihosoft Mobile Transfer allows you to selectively backup iPhone contacts to computer in readable and printable formats.
