Method 2: How to transfer contacts from iPhone to computer with iCloud

To import your iPhone contacts to PC, you need to sync them from your iPhone to iCloud first, then download iCloud contacts to your iPhone. Compared to EaseUS MobiMover introduced in Method 1, iCloud is more complex and time-consuming and requires WiFi network connection to function. The advantage of iCloud is that you can transfer contacts from your iPhone to computer wirelessly. Here are the detailed steps.

Step 1: On your iPhone, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud, and turn on Contacts.

Step 2: On your computer, open a browser, visit iCloud.com, and sign in with the Apple ID and password. (The account should be the same as the one on your iPhone.)

Step 3: Choose Contacts among the options and select the items you want to copy from iPhone to PC. (Use Shift/Ctrl for bulk selection or click the gear icon > Select All to check all items at once.)

Step 4: Click the gear icon, tap Export vCard, then the browser will start downloading contacts from iCloud to your PC. After that, your iPhone contacts will be successfully copied to your computer.

Method 3: How to copy contacts from iPhone to PC via Email

Another way to move contacts from your iPhone to computer without iTunes/iCloud is to use Email, which is quite simple and quick. However, this method is only recommended when you want to transfer one or several items because you cannot send multiple items at a time via Email. Thus, if you need to import multiple or all contacts from your iPhone to PC, Method 1 is the one you should carry out.

Step 1: Go to Contacts App on your iPhone.

Step 2: Find and click the contacts you'd like to move from your iPhone to PC.

Step 3: Click Share Contact and choose Mail.

Step 4: Enter the information needed to send an email to yourself.

Step 5: Check the email on your computer and save the item on it. By doing so, you can get your iPhone contacts to your PC effortlessly.
