Sorting Contacts

TouchCopy makes it easy to find contacts. Sort by first name or last name, or search for specific contacts by using the search box in the top-right corner of the application.

Copying Contacts to Mac

To copy contacts in VCard format, 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 Mac" button.

Copying Contacts to Address Book / Contacts

If you wish to copy your iPhone contacts directly into your Address Book / 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 Address Book" 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 Address Book / Contacts app. If you copied as VCard, you can import these files into the Contacts app by using File -> Import...

Once your Address Book is populated on your Mac, 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 Mac's Contacts with your iPhone. Once complete, click "Sync".
