How to transfer contacts from Google to iPhone ?

Since the newest version of iOS do have iCloud, all the things we need to do is just transfer your contacts to iCloud. Then you won’t be data lost or lost contact if your iPhone / iPad missing.

If your Android device or other device synced with your Google Contacts, then you can transfer using this way.


UPDATE: If you want to transfer contacts from iPhone to Android, you can try this.

Or else in here.

  • Login to your Gmail account,
  • Choose Contacts
  • Click the Export from the Drop down menu ( More )
  • Export Contacts Choosing The group ( My Contacts ).

If you choose All Contacts, this maybe make your contacts messy. Because the previous Gmail keep all those send / received email to the contacts, and collected a lot of spam email address too.

Export in vCard Format, this will be version 3.0 vCard.

BEGIN:VCARD
 VERSION:3.0

I know iOS do not support version lower than that like exporting from old Symbian.

Save the Contacts.vcf to your Documents or Desktop, and you will use it to import later.

Import to iCloud

You can access your iCloud from any browser that have internet connection. This make everything easier. If you do not have iCloud account, you can register one from there.

Login to your iCloud account, with your username and password.

Click on the big Contacts icon

The bottom there have a small gear icon.

Click it and access to Import vCard.

So, choose the Contacts.vcf that you export just now, into your iCloud.

Reason to use this way

I’m using this way, because no need to use Microsoft Outlook or Windows Contact, since the iCloud can sync direct from Outlook only in PC.
