Is it possible to free transfer contacts to iPhone 8?

The brand new iPhone 8 was just released in September and I believe that many Apple fans can't wait to have the new iPhone 8 in their hands. It is a completely new design made of glass and built so precisely that it is protected against splash water and dust. The most popular phone camera in the world is now even better. The Retina HD display looks better than ever before. Also, the True Tone technology ensures automatic white balance and adjusts to the light in any environment.

Sounds quite attempting, right? Of course, many users are switching their old iPhone to a new iPhone 8 to get all the fabulous features. But it also comes with a serious problem: what about all the old data on the old iPhone? What should I do to continue using all the old data on the new iPhone? Here in this guide, we will show you 2 ways to transfer one of the most important kinds of data - contacts from old iPhone to new iPhone 8

Method 1. Backup contacts with iCloud to transfer to iPhone 8

iCloud is a feature offered by Apple to back up your iPhone data in a Cloud storage. When you the function activated, iCloud will automatically back up all the data you wish to preserve when your device is connected to a WLAN network. Here we will show you the detailed steps to create a backup copy of your iPhone data with iCloud:

  • 1. Connect your device to a WLAN network.
  • 2. Select Settings > [User Name], and then tap iCloud. If you are using iOS 10.2 or older, scroll down in Settings, then tap iCloud.
  • 3. Tap on "iCloud Backup". If you are using iOS 10.2 or older, tap Backup. Make sure the "iCloud backup" option is enabled.
  • 4.  Tap on "Create backup now". Do not disconnect from the WLAN network until the operation is complete.
  • 5. Make sure the backup is complete: Go to Settings >[User Name] > iCloud > iCloud Storage > Manage Storage, and then select your device. If you are using iOS 10.2 or older, select Settings > iCloud > Storage > Manage Storage and then select your device. The backup should be displayed with all the details of the backup.

After the steps above, you have successfully backed up your contacts to iCloud. When you sign up for iCloud on your new iPhone 8, you can restore the data from iCloud on the phone.

Check if you have enough free iCloud storage for the backup. When you sign up for iCloud, you will get 5 GB of iCloud storage for free. If you need more iCloud memory, you will pay to get more.
