Now, open the Contacts app or the Phone app and go to the Contacts section. Stay here for a couple of minutes with your iPhone connected to Wi-Fi or stable cellular data. Soon, all your contacts from your Google account will appear on your iPhone.

Any changes you make to your contacts, like adding new contacts or deleting existing ones, will sync to your other devices where you’re using this same Google account.

If the contacts don’t appear in about 5 minutes, force close the Contacts app and reopen it. Also, double-check to make sure your iPhone is connected to the internet.
