If you have ever moved files from one phone to another you know that in most cases you lose some of you contacts. Even I had to spend some time trying to figure out some way to transfer my contacts to another phone. The simplest way to backup your contacts involves iTunes but to use this option you need computer. It shouldn’t take more than few seconds up to few minutes depending on how much information is on your iPhone. Another option to backup your iPhone’s contacts involves iCloud, it is Apple’s effort in cloud computing that was introduced in the fall of 2011. This method will backup only selected data and not the entire phone, so it is recommended to use iTunes backup feature one in a while. Before we proceed, you’ll want to download the latest copy of iTunes for either Mac or PC. In the event of a fire, theft or event that causes damage to your home, your data could be lost. If you own a computer, there are still a great number of reasons why you’d opt for iCloud backups. Even if you do a backup for your contacts and then move them to your new phone there is always some errors in the process and you lose some contacts without even noticing it.
Now you can use this backup when restoring your iPhone or when you want to setup a new iPhone using information from the old one. Unfortunately, it’s also on the top of the list of things people neglect to do on any consistent basis.

When you connect a device that has been previously paired with a computer, connecting that device will start the syncing process. Connect your iPhone to your computer using the correct cable, either one that came with your iPhone or a MFi compatible third party cable. You can leave the Apple Store with your new iPhone 6 and immediately have all of your information restored. The below image shows each and every item that is backed up to your computer whenever a backup is completed. Select a method that works best for you and be sure that your iPhone is backing up on a regular basis. Some phones have a specific contact format and transferring them to a different phone is close to impossible. There is a reason for the increased storage and bigger screens on today’s smartphones. Beginning with the iPhone 5, all cables use a USB connection on one end and a Lightning connection that connects at the bottom of your phone, as shown below. If there are no messages, you can safely move to the next step, which is checking when the last backup was made.
This often means that you downloaded an app from the App Store using your iPhone and these were never synced to your computer. If you’ve had your iPhone lost, stolen or damaged, it can be a terrible and costly experience.
These devices often act as our primary computing devices, in addition to completely replacing your old point and shoot camera.

At their core, these are mobile devices, designed so that you can take them virtually anywhere. Below are directions for how to backup using either option, along with a few pros and cons.
