Let’s explain in detail how to backup contacts on your iOS phones with all the methods.
Despite all cloud solutions, we can lose the numbers we save on our smartphones. The reason for this is our habits from old phones to the present day. We forget that a Google account on Android and an iCloud account on iPhone, that is iOS, can save our contacts.
It is possible to backup with the old methods, but otherwise, all your data may be lost. For this reason, it can be said that the safest way to backup contacts is the cloud server that is most suitable for your device’s operating system. Although the contacts backup process may seem like a hassle, you can easily back up your contacts by following a few very simple steps.
iOS gives iPhone users two different options for contacts backup. Both options are basically similar. Instead of backing up contacts to a sim card or another memory card, iPhone users can save contacts in iCloud or iTunes, the cloud server of iOS. You only need an internet connection for iCloud backup, while you need a computer and connecting cable for iTunes backup. If you don’t have enough space on your iCloud server and you don’t want to buy paid space, you can back up contacts to your computer via iTunes.
Open the “Settings” section from the Home Page.
