iOS: How To Remove A Contact From A Group On iPhone and iPad

iOS 8 iconLearn how to remove a contact from a group on iPhone and iPad running on iOS 8, iOS 9 and iOS 10 without completely deleting the contact. The iOS 8 (also iOS 9 and iOS 10) contacts app does not really have the direct feature to just remove a contact from a specific group. Hence, removing a contact from 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 remove an iCloud contact from a single group on iCloud.com (Mac and Windows PC). The contacts are then synced with your iPhone or iPad via iCloud.

In the preceding posts I have shown you how to add a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad and how to move a contact to a group on iPhone and iPad, in this post how to remove a contact from a group or account (and not completely deleting the contact 😉 ).

1. How to remove a contact from a group 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 remove a contact from a group on iPhone and iPad, but not completely deleting the contact. The solution is either to do a more or less uncomfortable work-around, use the iOS app ‘Simpler Contacts’ or, for iCloud groups only, remove a contact from a group via iCloud on a web browser.

Stay tuned! 😉
