How to Transfer Contacts from Old iPhone to iPhone 6s (Plus) without Restoring from iTunes/iCloud

Don’t Use iTunes or iCloud to Move Contacts from iPhone to iPhone 6s (Plus)!

You’ve got a new iPhone 6s (Plus) – great! Now all you need to do is to transfer all your old contacts to your new iPhone.

Apple provides two ways for transferring data from your old iPhone to the new one:

  • 1. Using the iCloud to transfer.
  • 2. Using iTunes to transfer information

But iTunes and iCloud can’t work well sometimes. Some users reported iPhone fails to sync with iTunes. Or iCloud would cause data loss in new iPhone 6s (Plus) during data sync. That’s why you need to turn to a new way to move iPhone files.
