Four easy ways for you to export contacts from iPhone to PC and one more tip for you to sync contacts from iPhone to Mac.
Exporting contacts from iPhone is needed when you want to make a backup of your precious iPhone data or share contacts across your devices. That's probably why you need to transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone or copy contacts from iPhone to PC.
Since the ways on how to share contacts between two iPhones have been detailed already, here I'd like to show you how to transfer contacts from iPhone to computer using four different ways.
Supports: vCard, CSV, HTML
Do you want to save iPhone contacts to PC to vCard or CSV?
Do you want to download iPhone contacts to PC all at once?
Do you want to transfer contacts from PC back to your iPhone whenever you need to?
If you do, the iPhone transfer software - EaseUS MobiMover will meet your needs well. As a versatile iOS content manager, it allows you to do many other things in addition to transferring contacts from iPhone to computer. For example, you can:
To export contacts from iPhone to PC:
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your PC and launch EaseUS MobiMover. Unlock your iPhone and click "Trust" in the prompt asking for your permission. To transfer contacts from your iPhone to PC, choose "Phone to PC" > "Next".
Step 2. Select "Contacts" and click the default path to set a custom storage path if you need to. Afterward, click "Transfer".
Step 3. When the transfer process has finished, you can go to view the contacts on your computer. (The transferred contacts will be saved as an HTML file on your PC, you can view it with a browser and transfer it to your iOS device if you need to.)
When necessary, you can transfer these contacts back to your iPhone with this tool.
If you don't have a USB cable at hand, then using iCloud will help to save your iPhone contacts to PC. With iCloud contacts on, you can sync iPhone contacts to iCloud and then download iCloud contacts to PC. By doing so, you can back up iPhone contacts to computer successfully.
Make sure there is enough storage in iCloud, then follow the steps below to export contacts from iPhone to PC wirelessly.
To save iPhone contacts to PC using iCloud:
Step 1. On the iPhone, go to "Settings" > [your name] > "iCloud" and tap to enable "Contacts".
Step 2. On the computer, open a browser and visit iCloud.com.
Step 3. Sign in with the Apple iD account you use on the iPhone and choose "Contacts".
Step 4. Select the contacts you want to export and go to "Settings" > "Export vCard".
If you want to transfer contacts from PC to an iPhone or iPad, turn on iCloud contacts on the target device and then import the vCard file to iCloud to get it done.
Supports: Google CSV, Outlook CSV, vCard
Other than iCloud, using Gmail is also a wireless solution to export contacts from iPhone to PC. If you are getting used to using a Google account on your iOS device, it will be quite time-saving for you to download contacts from your iPhone to your computer. All you need is to sync your iPhone contacts to Gmail, and then export Google contacts to your PC via a browser.
To save contacts from iPhone to computer:
Step 1. Go to the Settings app on your iOS device.
Step 2. Tap "Passwords & Accounts" > "Add Account" > "Google."
Step 3. Enter your Google account information and click "Next."
Step 4. After the verification process, click "Save."
Step 5. Enable the "Contacts" option and tap "Save."
Step 6. After syncing, go to Google Contacts and sign in with your account.
Step 7. Select the contacts from your iPhone and click "Export."
Step 8. Choose a format and click "Export" to transfer your iPhone contacts to the computer.
The last wireless solution to export iPhone contacts to PC is to use an email. By sharing contacts via email, you can save iPhone contacts to PC or any other device that has an email program.
However, convenient as it is, using email is not advisable if you have lots of items to transfer. Because it will be quite time-consuming. Thus, you are recommended to apply this method only when you want to export contacts from iPhone to PC in a small account.
To transfer contacts from iPhone to computer via email:
Step 1. Go to the Contacts app and tap the contact you want to export from iPhone to PC.
Step 2. Tap "Share Contact" > "Mail" and choose one of the mail services you want to use.
Step 3. Enter the account information and then send the email to your own account.
Step 4. Check the email on your computer and download the VCF file to your PC.
When it comes to transferring contacts from iPhone to Mac, there is one more option for you except for using the three tips above.
Since both iPhone and Mac are AirDrop-supported devices, you can export contacts from iPhone to Mac or vice versa using AirDrop.
To export contacts from iPhone to Mac:
Step 1. Turn on AirDrop on iPhone and Mac.
Step 2. Open the Contacts app on your iPhone and tap the contacts you'd like to send.
Step 3. Tap "Share Contact" and then tap "AirDrop."
Step 4. Select your Mac.
Step 5. Go to your Mac and click "Accept."
There are some issues you may encounter while using the tips above, e.g. "iCloud contacts not syncing". If you do, you can either follow the troubleshooting guide to fix the issue or switch to alternative ways for help. Hope you can back up your iPhone contacts to computer successfully with one of the methods provided.
