Copying contacts from iPhone to SIM card is necessary when you're planning to switch phones between Android and iPhone or change network provider. But unfortunately, Apple doesn't support saving data to SIM card directly. Thus, you have to solve this problem through some indirect paths, as shown in this guide. Prior to transferring, let's learn about the possibility of transferring iPhone contacts to SIM cards.
The answer is NO. There is no direct way to transfer iPhone contacts to SIM card unless jailbreaking your device. But this is not suggested, not only because the process of jailbreaking is complex but also because this would probably damage your device if not done properly.
