iPhone, Tutorials

In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of creating groups on your iPhone. Groups are a great way to organize your contacts and make it easier to send messages or emails to multiple people at once.

Step 1: Open the Contacts App

To get started, locate and tap on the Contacts app on your iPhone’s home screen. The app icon looks like a Silhouette of a person against a grey background.

Step 2: Tap on “Groups”

Once you have opened the Contacts app, look for the “Groups” option in the bottom left corner of the screen. It usually appears as a folder icon with three people inside it. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 3: Create a New Group

To create a new group, tap on the “Add New Group” option at the bottom of the Groups screen. A prompt will appear asking you to enter a name for your new group.


  • You can be creative with naming your groups. For example, you could create groups like “Family,” “Friends,” or “Work Colleagues” based on your preferences and contacts.
  • You can also add contacts to multiple groups. This flexibility allows you to categorize your contacts in various ways that suit your needs.

Step 4: Add Contacts to Your Group

After creating a group, you will be redirected to a list of all your contacts. To add contacts to your new group, simply tap on each contact’s name. A checkmark will appear next to selected contacts indicating that they have been added to the group.

Pro Tip:

If you have a long list of contacts, you can use the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly find and select specific contacts.

Step 5: Manage Group Settings

If you want to manage the settings for your group, tap on the “Edit” button in the top right corner of the screen while viewing your group. This will allow you to:

  • Rename your group if needed.
  • Add or remove contacts from your group.
  • Delete the entire group if it is no longer required.

Step 6: Use Your Group

Now that you have created a group, you can easily send messages or emails to all members at once. Simply open your preferred messaging or email app, start composing a new message, and type in the name of your group in the recipient field. The entire group will be selected automatically.


You can also use groups to filter your contacts in various apps like Mail or Messages by tapping on “To:”, then selecting your desired group from the list that appears.

Congratulations! You now know how to create and utilize groups on your iPhone. This feature will undoubtedly help you stay organized and save time when contacting multiple people simultaneously.
