I guess many Apple fans must have bought a new iPhone 8 since it was released in this September. Well, one of the most urgent things for them is to move old iPhone contacts to new iPhone 8. Unlike Android devices, iPhone contacts are saved in the phone’s memory instead of SIM card. Thus, you cannot import the contacts to another iPhone directly by inserting the SIM card. In this article, we’ll show you 3 methods to export old iPhone contacts to the new one.

Way 1: Transfer Contacts from Old iPhone to New iPhone 8 without iTunes

Restore iPhone contacts from iTunes backup will get back all the data from old iPhone, but you are not allowed to only import the contacts. iCloud syncing will share the information when you sign in the same apple ID on two iPhones, but data loss could be caused during the process. That’s why you need Tenorshare iCareFone, professional iOS files transferring tool that allows selectively send contacts from one iPhone to another iPhone without losing data.
