Hey there! I’m Tracy, your go-to expert for all things tech. Today, we’re going to tackle a common question: how to delete contacts on an iPhone. Let’s dive right in.

Deleting Contacts Directly on Your iPhone

Getting rid of unneeded contacts is a quick and intuitive process on your iPhone. Here’s a step-by-step guide for you:

  1. Open your Contacts app.
  2. Find the contact you wish to delete; you can use the search bar for quicker results.
  3. Click on the contact’s name.
  4. On the contact’s info page, tap Edit in the top right corner.
  5. Scroll to the bottom and hit Delete Contact.
  6. Confirm that you want to delete the contact. And you’re done!

Deleting Multiple Contacts at Once

Unfortunately, iOS doesn’t allow you to delete more than one contact at once directly from your iPhone. However, there are workarounds. A third-party app called ‘Groups’ can save you some time:

  1. Download the ‘Groups’ app from the App Store.
  2. Open ‘Groups’, and allow it to access your contacts.
  3. Select All Contacts from the Groups list.
  4. Tap on the circle outline to the left of each contact you want to delete.
  5. Once you’ve selected all the contacts you want to remove, tap Choose Action at the top.
  6. Tap on Delete Contacts… and then, Remove from my iPhone!.

And there you have it! You now know how to delete contacts on your iPhone. Remember, cleaning up your phone book can help keep things organized and running smoothly.
