How to Transfer Contacts from iPhone 6/5S to iPad Air/mini/4?
Apple's iPhone and iPad are fairly popular among the people worldwide and it is a common phenomenon that people have iPhone and iPad at the same time. And we all hope to live an easier mobile life. So how do you share files between an iPhone and an iPad if you gather the two devices in hand? For example, what's the way you should use while you want to transfer contacts from iPhone to iPad so that you can continue to make calls and send text messages with your friendly as usual? Re-type the hundreds of contact one by one manually? That would be quite time and energy consuming. What's more, you have to be enough careful to type the phone numbers because it would be easy to input wrong number, name or address.
To sync contacts from iPhone to iPad with iCloud, you need to sync iPhone contacts to iCloud first and then export it to the iPad by restoring from iCloud backup.
> Go to Settings > iCloud > Backup on your iPhone and then make a backup to iCloud from your iPhone.
> Open your iPad and go to Settings > General > Reset. Then tap on the option of Erase All Content and Settings.
(Note: So before erasing everything from your iPhone, you are suggested to backup your iPad files.)
