In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to delete multiple contacts on your iPhone.
Step 1: Open the Contacts App
First, locate and open the Contacts app on your iPhone’s home screen. The app icon looks like a Silhouette of a person against a white background.
Step 2: Select Multiple Contacts
To select multiple contacts for deletion, tap on the “Groups” button located at the top left corner of the screen. A list of available groups will appear.
Note: If you have synced your contacts with iCloud or other accounts, make sure you are viewing all contacts by selecting “All [Account Name]” or “All [iCloud]” in the Groups list.
Selecting Individual Contacts:
- To select individual contacts, simply tap on each contact’s name one by one. Selected contacts will be highlighted in blue.
- If you want to deselect a contact, just tap it again to remove the highlight.
Selecting Multiple Contacts at Once:
- To select multiple contacts at once, scroll through the list and tap on the first contact you wish to delete. Slide your finger down or up from that point and continue tapping on each contact you want to include in the selection.
- All selected contacts will have a blue highlight indicating they are ready for deletion.
Step 3: Delete the Selected Contacts
Once you have selected all the contacts you want to delete, tap on the “Delete” button located at the bottom right corner of the screen. A pop-up confirmation message will appear.
Note: Be cautious as this action cannot be undone. The selected contacts will be permanently deleted from your iPhone.
Deleting multiple contacts on your iPhone is a simple process that can help you declutter your address book. By following these steps, you can efficiently remove unwanted contacts and maintain a more organized contact list.
