iCloud is always considered the easiest way to transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone. Why? Because you don't need any USB cable or computer. Just turn on iCloud Contacts on both iPhones, and then you can sync all contacts from one iPhone to another at once.
However, that doesn't mean it is the optimal choice in all situations. To transfer contacts or other types of files successfully, you have to sign in to the iPhone and iPad with the same Apple ID. Besides, you need to make sure there is enough iCloud space for you to save the items and that there are stable network connections on both the iPhone and the iPad. What's more, iCloud syncs data. That means all your contacts will be transferred and any change you make on one iPhone will be updated on another.
Given that, there are times when you prefer to transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone without iCloud, either due to network failure or different Apple IDs.
iCloud is not the only way to transfer contacts from one iPhone to another. When you look for other workable ways, there are third-party data transfer tools, AirDrop, and other services to help. Check them in detail and pick up the most suitable way to apply.
Do you want to transfer contacts from one iPhone to another flexibly without relying on the Internet? Whether you are using the same Apple ID on both iPhones or not, whether you want to transfer contacts all at once or selectively, the iPhone transfer software - EaseUS MobiMover will get your needs met.
As an iPhone data transfer tool, it performs well to transfer contacts, photos, videos, music, ringtones, books, and more between two iDevices or between an iDevice and a computer. Without iTunes or iCloud, you will be able to transfer contacts from one iPhone to another successfully with it.
What's more, it also serves the functions of an iPhone backup tool, a WhatsApp manager, a HEIC converter, and a video to MP3 converter that works to:
With EaseUS MobiMover installed on your Mac or PC, you can view and manage your iPhone content easily. Don't hesitate to give it a try.
To transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone without iCloud:
Step 1. Connect your iPhones to your computer with two USB cables and launch EaseUS MobiMover. Unlock your iDevices and click "Trust" to trust your computer. To transfer contacts from one iPhone to another, click "Phone to Phone" and specify the transfer direction. Then click "Next" to continue.
Step 2. Select "Contacts" and click "Transfer" to start transferring contacts from your old iPhone to your new iPhone.
Step 3. When the transfer process has completed, go to open the "Contacts" app on your iPad/iPhone to check the transferred items.
You can follow similar steps to export contacts from your iPhone to a computer or add contacts from a computer to your device.
Many users prefer iCloud since it is a wireless solution to sync data across your devices. When iCloud is not the desired way out for you, there are still workable methods for you to transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone without iCloud wirelessly. One of them is AirDrop.
AirDrop is a pre-installed feature on Apple devices, including your iPhone, that allows you to send photos, videos, contacts, websites, locations, and more between two AirDrop-supported devices. Thus, it is also a workable way to transfer contacts from one iPhone to another.
Convenient as it is, AirDrop has its limits. You need to keep both devices within the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth range. Most importantly, you can only AirDrop contacts from one iPhone to another one by one. When you have lots of items to transfer, AirDrop won't be a suitable solution for you. But if there are just a few contacts, you can follow the steps below to share contacts from one iPhone to another without iCloud.
To send contacts from iPhone to iPhone:
Step 1. Turn on AirDrop and Bluetooth on both iPhones.
Step 2. On the source iPhone, go to the "Contacts" app and tap the contact you'd like to share.
Step 3. Tap "Share Contact" and choose "AirDrop."
Step 4. Select the name of the target device.
Step 5. On the target iPhone, tap "Accept" in the prompt to receive the item.
If you don't see the name of the target device, you need to check the AirDrop settings to see whether the target device is allowed to be found.
A similar way to transfer contacts from one iPhone to another is by sending an email. You can send an email with the contacts as attachments between any device. Whether you want to transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone, Android to iPhone, or iPhone to Android, you can apply this way to get it done.
Just like using AirDrop, you can go to the Contacts app, select the item you want to transfer, and then share it via email.
iCloud works quite conveniently to sync data across devices that use the same Apple ID account. Therefore, when you want to transfer data from one Apple ID to another, it won't help. Luckily, even without iCloud, you can still transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone with ease. Besides, the three ways above are also applicable to transfer other types of files like photos and videos. Command this way and you will be able to share files across your devices freely.
