If you wish to copy your iPhone contacts directly into your Outlook / Contacts app, select the contacts you wish to copy, or use the cmd+A keyboard combination to select all of your contacts. Then, click the "Copy to Outlook" or "Copy to Contacts" button.

Transfer contacts to a new device

If your Contacts app and your iPhone are set up to automatically sync with iCloud, your contacts will automatically appear on your device. If this is not the case, make sure that your contacts are stored in your Outlook / Contacts app. If you copied as VCard, you can import these files into the Contacts app by using File -> Import...

Once your Contacts app / Outlook is populated on your PC, open iTunes and connect your iPhone. Click your iPhone's device icon in iTunes, and hit the "Info" tab on the left hand side. Here you can select to sync your PC's Contacts with your iPhone. Once complete, click "Sync".
