iOS 8 iconLearn how to add a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad running on iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 / iOS 11. The iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 / iOS 11 contacts app does not really have the direct feature to add a contact to a specific group. Hence, adding a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad must be done in other ways. Either you do a more or less uncomfortable work-around in the native contacts app on iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 / iOS 11, or you are using third-party apps like ‘Simpler Contacts – Pro‘ for this. For iCloud contacts only, you can manage your iCloud contacts on iCloud.com (Mac and Windows PC). The contacts are synced with your iPhone or iPad via iCloud.

In this post I show you how to add a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad, in a following post how to move a contact from a group to another group or account. Last, but not least, I explain how to remove a contact from a group on iPhone and iPad (and not completely deleting the contact 😉 ).

1. How to add a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad using the native iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 / iOS 11 contacts app:

I have always been wondering why the native iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 / iOS 11 contacts app does not have an intuitive option to add a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad. The solution is either to do a more or less uncomfortable work-around, use the iOS app ‘Simpler Contacts’ or, for iCloud groups only, add the contact via iCloud on a web browser.

Stay tuned! 😉
