Adding new contacts to your iPhone, iPod or iPad has never been easier. Follow the steps below to create a new contact, fill in the contact's details and save the entry directly on your iPhone.

  1. Click the "New Contact" button in the top-right corner of Contact Transfer.
    Add a new contact to your device
  2. Complete the form to populate your new contact's details. You can use the "+" icon to add new entries for information like phone numbers and addresses.

  3. To save your new information, click "Save Changes". This will add the new contact to your device!

You can now find your new contact in the "Contacts" app on your iPhone!

Clicking "Discard Changes" will cancel the creation of the contact, and any unsaved details will be lost.

Edit contacts

Editing your existing iPhone contacts in Contact Transfer follows a similar procedure to creating new ones. Here's how it's done...

  1. Click a contact from the list to select them in Contact Transfer and view their details.
  2. Edit any of the items in the form by clicking inside them and updating the information. To add new fields for multiple addresses and telephone numbers, click the "+" icon next to the corresponding field.

  3. Once you have completed your desired updates to the chosen contact, click "Save Changes". This will save the changes and update the contact on your iPhone itself.

Clicking "Discard Changes" will revert the contact to its state before you started editing, and any unsaved changes will be lost.

Delete contacts

It is not possible to select multiple contacts at once to delete on an iPhone itself. As such, it could take vast amounts of time to review each contact individually and delete them.

With Contact Transfer, however, you can easily review and select multiple contacts in bulk for deletion.

To delete a single contact, select it from your list, then click "Delete contact".

To delete all contacts from your connected device, click a contact from your list, then use ctrl+A on your keyboard. This will highlight all contacts in the list. Click "Delete contact" if you are sure that you want to delete all contacts from your device.

To delete multiple contacts, hold 'ctrl' on your keyboard while selecting more than one contact, then click "Delete contact" when you are happy with your selection.
