iCloud: Delete a group or a contact from a group

Delete a group or a contact from a group

You can delete a group or remove a contact from a group at any time using Contacts on iCloud.com. You can’t delete the All Contacts group.

Delete a group

  • Select the group you want to delete, then press the Delete key.

When you delete a group, the contacts it contains remain in the All Contacts group.

Delete a contact from a group

  • Select the group that contains the contact you want to delete, select the contact, then press the Delete or Backspace key.

Deleting a contact from a group removes it from the group only. It remains in the All Contacts group.

If you accidentally delete any groups or contacts from groups, you can use iCloud.com to restore them. For instructions, see Restore your contacts, calendars and reminders, or bookmarks.
