In the current digital world, there is always a need to share contacts on iPhone, be it between friends, family, or colleagues. Contact sharing is also very important when you are replacing your phone, as it helps to ensure that you are able to retain all the contacts on your phonebook. With the coming of smartphones, sharing iPhone contacts has become an important feature for most iPhone users. Below is a look at some of the various ways on how to share contacts on iPhone (iPhone 7).

Part 1: How to Share iPhone Contacts to iPhone

Sharing contacts between iPhone (iPhone 8) is pretty much the same as sharing contacts between other phones. However, since iPhone contacts are stored in the phone's memory and there is no direct way of exporting them, a third party application must be used. One of the applications you can use to share contacts on the iPhone is MobileTrans for Mac (or MobileTrans for Windows).

It is a data transfer application that allows you to share data such as contacts, music, videos, messages, applications, and other files between smartphones. It is a great solution that comes in handy when sharing contacts, especially in the case where you are switching from one phone to another. In addition, you can use the application to transfer data between phones on different platforms, for example, between an iPhone (iPhone 8) and an Android phone.
