Is your iPhone full of old contacts that you can’t even remember when you saved them? Delete them at once like this.
iPhones are considered one of the best smartphones on the market. When you buy an iPhone, you get a smartphone that has flagship hardware for cameras, processor, battery, and more. But it’s not just the hardware that makes it impressive. iPhones are among a handful of devices that don’t run on the open source Android platform, but do have their own operating system, known as iOS. This has proven to be a benefit for iPhones as they are more streamlined and more secure than the rest.
However, due to its exclusivity, it can be a bit tricky to perform even the simplest of tasks like deleting contacts on your iPhone. It becomes especially difficult if you are a first time iPhone user. But don’t worry, we’ve got your back. There are several ways to delete contacts on your iPhone. You can do it one by one or group multiple contacts and then delete them. If your contacts are backed up by email or iCloud, you can simply turn off contact visibility without losing them forever. But if you still want to remove them, this is how you can do it.
