Have you lost your contacts on your iPhone and now you're wondering how to get them back? This tutorial shows you how to restore missing iCloud contacts and get them back on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
To use Facetime, iMessage, email, or Call from iPhone, it's handy to have all your contacts on your Mac. But if iCloud contacts are not syncing, partially showing just a few contacts, or not showing any contact at all, the following solutions will fix the problem.
Contacts app or the Contacts tab of the Phone app should show "My Card" at the top. This is your contact card which has your phone number, email, relations (like parents, spouse, siblings), birthday, address, and more. If the card information isn't available or a wrong contact is showing instead of yours, here's how to add or correct this.
When you own multiple iPhones and iPads, you may want to sync them so that they have the same contacts, reminders, photos, videos, files, and apps. Doing this ensures you can pick up any device to make FaceTime calls, check your calendar event, enjoy apps, see pictures, or start a document on the smaller iPhone screen but finish it comfortably on the large iPad.
Thanks to iCloud, you can have all your essentials sync wirelessly on your iPhones and iPads. If you wonder how to do that, here are the easy steps to sync iPhone to another iPhone or iPad.
If you’ve recently updated your Mac to macOS Big Sur, you may have noticed an issue with your contacts. Have all of your Contacts suddenly been duplicated since the upgrade? If so, you’re not alone.
You can certainly go through the process of removing the duplicates, as some have suggested in the Apple Community forum. But there is another suggestion, used by our own Sebastien Page, that is the quickest and easiest way to go.
Basically, you’ll restore your Contacts to the last backup in iCloud, here’s how.
One of the easiest ways to share your contact information with someone is by sending them your Contacts card. After all, this card has your full name, phone number(s), email address, street address, and any other details you add to it.
But at the same time, you may not want to share all of this information when you send your card. The Contacts app on Mac offers a convenient feature labeled the Me Card. With it, you can decide exactly what details are shared when you send your Contacts card, and here’s how.
The iCloud.com website is now available with a new landing page on mobile devices which finally brings support for some of its web apps such as Photos, Notes and Reminders. Previously, accessing the website from an iPhone or Android used to bring up a landing page informing you that you couldn't get to the web apps whilst using a mobile browser.
