How to Transfer Contacts from iPhone to iPhone

By Emily Watson, Sunday, Jan 04, 2015

Many iPhone users get into trouble when they purchase a new iPhone and want to transfer contacts on old iPhone to the new one. It is known to all, iPhone contacts are stored in iPhone's memory card, not in the SIM Card. Therefore, we can't easily transfer contacts from the old one to the new one by transferring the SIM card with contacts. However, when it comes to transferring contacts from iPhone to iPhone, you still have options. You can transfer all your contacts using iCloud, iTunes or FonePaw iOS Transfer.

With FonePaw iOS Transfer, you can transfer contacts between two iPhone, for example, iPhone 6s to iPhone 7 directly without iTunes. It not only can transfer all contacts from one iPhone to another just as iTunes and iCloud can do, but it is very useful when you just want to share selected contacts with someone else's iPhone, such as sharing some but not all contacts with a colleague. In addition, this software can help you edit, import, export and remove duplicate contacts directly.
