iCloud: Archive your contacts

Archive your contacts

To create an archive (copy) of your iCloud contacts, you can use Contacts on your Mac and Microsoft Outlook on your Windows computer. Your computer must have the iCloud Contacts feature set up.

You can also export all your contacts in a single vCard using Contacts on iCloud.com. For more information, see Export contact information.

  • Using Contacts on a Mac: Click All Contacts at the top of the Groups list, select all the contacts in the group, then choose File > Export > Export vCard.

    To include groups in the archive file, choose File > Export > Contacts Archive.

    Contacts creates a single vCard containing all your contacts.
