This guide will show you how to merge duplicate contacts on iPhone.

When you add multiple accounts like a personal Gmail account, an Outlook account and a work account, there's always the chance that you'll end up with duplicates. If you only need to get rid of a few duplicate contacts on iPhone, you can do it manually in a few second. However, if you need to delete dozens duplicate iPhone contacts, you may want to use a tool, for it is too difficult to find and merge hundreds of duplicate contacts.

This software not only helps in transfer contacts from PC to iPhone and vice verse, but also it can analyze your contacts for duplicates and merge them with one click.
