Changing your old iPhone to a new iPhone 7/7 Plus means you will handle a heavy workload to transfer all content from your previous device to the brand new one, especially there are a ton of contacts. Luckily, you can find 3 methods to about how to migrate contacts from iPhone to iPhone here.

Way 1: Export Contacts to New iPhone with iOS File Transferring Software

Here I would like to recommend you a third-party iOS specializing software Tenorshare iCareFone to send all contacts to new iPhone without erasing existing data. Indeed, both iTunes and iCloud can achieve setting up contacts on new iOS devices from backed-up file.

Also, you can selectively transfer one or more contacts within a few clicks. Now let’s check from iPhone to iPhone transfer contacts without iCloud or iTunes.

If you make an up-to-date backup with old device on iTunes, you will be given a choice to restore contacts as well as other files to your brand-new iPhone. Below is how to copy contacts from iPhone to iPhone with iTunes.

Way 3: Restore Contacts from iCloud Backup to New iPhone

Except for 2 ways mentioned above, you can also transfer contacts from old iphone to new iphone with iCloud. Quite similar to what you did with iTunes, but make sure you are using the same Apple ID on both iOS device and you are under Wi-Fi network.  

On old device: Go to Settings > Your name on iOS 10.3 later or Storage and Bakcup on iOS 10.2 or earlier > iCloud > iCloud Backup > Backup Now.

Otherwise, go to Settings > General > Reset > Erase All Contents and Settings > Erase iPhone. You will be able to reset your device then.

iCloud or iTunes backup will be a good try assuming you have not set up the iPhone yet, or the two will wipe any contacts currently on your new iPhone and replace most contents and settings with the old ones.
