Option 2: Transfer Contacts from iPhone to iPhone by restoring an iCloud Backup

If you have backed up your contacts to iCloud before, you can restore that backup onto another iPhone.

Step 1: Connect your iPhones to Wi-Fi.

Step 2: For iPhones running with iOS 9 or older: go to Settings > iCloud> iCloud Backup, then turn on the iCloud Backup toggle switch. Select Back Up Now.

For iPhones running with iOS 10 or later: go to Settings > Apple ID's profile > iCloud > iCloud Backup, then turn on the iCloud Backup toggle switch. Select Back Up Now.

Backup iPhone to iCloud

Note: This step will make your old iPhone upload your contacts and other data to iCloud. This backs up the entire iPhone, so it will take some time.

Step 3: Turn on your new iPhone and follow the setup procedures. When you reach the Apps & Data screen, tap Restore from iCloud Backup. Then select the backup you've just made on your old iPhone. Wait for your contacts to transfer from your old to new iPhone.

Method 3. Transfer Contacts from iPhone to iPhone with iTunes

If you want to use iTunes instead of iCloud to send your contacts from one iPhone to another, the first step is to sync the contacts of your old iPhone to your computer. Then transfer the synced contacts to your new iPhone with iTunes.

Step 1. Connect your old iPhone to a computer and open iTunes. Select the phone icon and click Info, and then check the Sync Contacts option. Click Apply to sync the contacts of your old iPhone to your computer.

Step 2. After the sync, unplug your old iPhone and plug in your new iPhone. Select the phone icon and click Info to make sure that the Sync Contacts option is checked. Then scroll down to the Advanced menu and check Contacts under Replace information on this iPhone. This will wipe any contacts currently stored on your new iPhone and replace them with your PC/Mac contacts, which should be the contacts from your old iPhone you've previously synced.

Step 3. In the end, click Apply to sync contacts to your new iPhone.

Method 4. Transfer Contacts from iPhone to iPhone Using AirDrop

AirDrop can be used to share and receive photos, documents, and more with other Apple devices that are nearby. So, you can try it to move contacts to a new iPhone. However, AirDrop only allows you to transfer one contact at a time. When you want to send all the contacts from iPhone to iPhone via AirDrop, this way is inconvenient.

Step 1. Make sure both iPhones are close to each other and have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on.

Step 2. Turn AirDrop on. Press and hold the Wi-Fi (or any other) icon in the control center to open up other options, then tap AirDrop and select Everyone. Make sure the Hotspot is turned off on both of the iPhones.

Step 3. Open the Contacts app on your source iPhone and find the contact that you want to transfer to the target iPhone.

Step 4. Tap the Share Contacts button, then tap AirDrop to choose the target iPhone. Next, hit the Accept button on your target iPhone to receive the shared contact.
