iPhone contact transfer

You’ve got a new iPhone - great! Now all you need to do is transfer all your old contacts to your new iPhone, but how do you do that? There are various online tutorials that show you how to sync contacts and other data between iPhones but we have the best options, all in one place:

Tip 1 of 4: How to transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone: Transfer contacts to a brand new iPhone

You’ve just got a brand new iPhone – great! But how do you transfer all your contacts from your old iPhone to your new one? Apple introduced iCloud back in 2011 and its cloud service can be used to easily transfer contacts from one device to another. If you don’t use iCloud, don’t worry as you can always use iTunes or third-party software instead (we’ll show you how to use these, too).
Note that you only get a limited amount of iCloud storage space for free from Apple, just 5GB. If you need more, you'll need to pay 79p per month if you need 50GB, £2.49 per month if you need 200GB or £6.99 per month if you need 1TB. We've found that the 79p option is adequate for most users.
To transfer contacts to a brand new iPhone:

1) On your old phone, make sure that you’re logged into your iCloud account and connected to WiFi. To check if you’re logged in, head to Settings> iCloud – if your name and Apple ID are displayed at the top of the page then you’re logged in and ready to get started.
2) Once you’re logged in, make sure that the option to sync contacts is toggled on.
3) Go to Settings > iCloud > Backup and tap "Back Up now". The length of time this takes depends on how much content you’re backing up and the speed of your Internet connection.
4) During the initial setup of your new iPhone, you’ll be prompted for your Apple ID details.
5) When asked to choose from a backup or set up as a new iPhone, select "Restore from iCloud Backup".
6) Select the latest backup from the list and the restore will begin. The length of time this takes depends on your Internet connection.
7) Once the restore has finished, the phone will restart and should be ready to use.
