iOS: How To Move A Contact To A Group On iPhone and iPad

iOS 8 iconLearn how to move a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad running on iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10. The iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 contacts app does not really have the direct feature to move a contact to a specific group. Hence, moving 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, or you are using third-party apps like ‘Simpler Contacts – Pro‘ for this. For iCloud contacts only, you can move your iCloud contacts on iCloud.com (Mac and Windows PC) via drag & trop. The contacts are synced with your iPhone or iPad via iCloud.

In the preceding post I have shown you how to add a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad, in this 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 move a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad using the native iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 contacts app:

I have always been wondering why the native iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 contacts app does not have an intuitive option to move 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! 😉
