“I want to transfer my contacts in icloud to iPhone. I know that I can directly download iCloud backup with my iPhone. But I do not need other data like messages, photos, etc. Can anyone help me selectively transfer contacts from iCloud to iPhone?”
Your iPhone data can be restored from iCloud when setting up a new device, or after erasing all data from a device using Settings> General> Reset> Erase All Content and Settings. However, this method would erase all of the data on your iPhone and do not allow you to selectively transfer Contacts from iCloud to iPhone. Then, what should you do? Don’t worry, below post will introduce the easy way to do it.
For most of freshmen, it is really a hot potato to only transfer iCloud Contacts to iPhone. Aim to selectively transfer Contacts from iCloud to iPhone, we will recommend iRefone.
