What is CardDAV

CardDAV is an address book client/server protocol designed to allow users to access and share contact data on a server. It's built around HTTP-based WebDAV protocol and uses vCard format for contact data. The open protocol is announced in August 2011.

Note: Syncing via CardDAV is only available over SSL for Apple devices so you'll need to enable this option by opening the CardDAV account you established under the Mail, Contacts, Calendars section in Settings.

When the setup is completed, open the Phone or Contacts app, your Google contacts will appear in the list. This group is now in sync with Google and will update when contacts are added or changed on either end.

Possibly you may lose contacts on iPhone because you press the wrong button, fail to jailbreak iPhone, etc. In such cases you can rescue all iPhone contacts by using Tenorshare iPhone Data Recovery, an user friendly tool that helps you recover contacts, photos, text messages and other files from your iPhone 5, iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 and more.
