iCloud: Import a contact into iCloud Contacts

Import a contact into iCloud Contacts

Each contact appears on a virtual card called a vCard. You can import vCards using Contacts on iCloud.com.

Contacts can import vCard format version 3.0 and later.

  1. Click the Action pop-up menu in the sidebar, then choose Import vCard.

  2. Select a vCard to import.

If the vCard contains contact information for more than one person, each contact becomes a separate entry.

Contacts from imported vCards are added to the All Contacts group. You can add contacts to any other group by dragging them to the desired group.

If you can’t import a vCard, it may exceed the iCloud Contacts size limit. For more information, see the Apple Support article Limits for iCloud Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, and Bookmarks.
