When you’re scrolling through your contacts looking for one person you’d like to reach out to, you may become overwhelmed by the number of phone numbers, emails, and names of people who you no longer wish to communicate with.
The early days of cell phones meant having your contacts transferred from device to device during the upgrade process. With iCloud and email backups available you can easily transfer contacts to every new device you get. While this is really convenient, you wind up with older contacts from the late 2000s. Although these contacts aren’t doing your phone any harm, it may be time to purge some content from your Contacts list.
If you’d like to delete all of your contacts from your phone there’s a fairly simple way to do this. If you’d like to pick and choose which ones go it’s a little more of a lengthy process. To save you time, we can show you how to delete your entire contact list (or in some cases hide multiple contacts).
