I want to copy all contacts, only contacts from my iPhone 4 to my new iPhone 6. I don’t need to transfer the whole backup to iPhone 6. I have tried to use the sale iCloud ID and sync contacts between iDevice, but it failed. Can anyone tell me how to transfer only contacts from iPhone 4 to new iPhone 6? Thanks. 

When it comes to upgrading to a new iPhone like iPhone 6, iPhone 6S, data transferring is always a common problem just as the above post mentioned. The question here is, how to transfer or copy only contacts from iPhone 4 to iPhone 6? Firstly, I think you need a full-scale backup for your contacts and then, use iPhone Data Recovery software to extract and restore only contacts from backup to iPhone 6. I think to back up your contacts from iPhone 4 is quite easy. You can do it via iTunes or iCloud. Here, I mainly focus on how to extract and copy contacts from iTunes or iCloud backup to iPhone 6.

After you have a backup for your iPhone 4, now you need to learn something about iPhone Data Recovery, which is able to extract backed up contacts from iTunes or iCloud and then, transfer them back to your iPhone 6 directly. Plus, such software like iFonebox can recover deleted data like contacts, notes, iMessages, WhatsApp messages, etc, from iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch. Certainly, iFonebox is able to transfer recovered contacts and notes back to your iDevice directly.

Free download and install iFonebox as the first step: Windows version and Mac version. Also, you can install Free Trial Version (Win and Mac) in advance. Next are 3 listed simple steps as follows:

  1. Run iFonebox. Choose Recover from iTunes Backup. Please connect your iPhone 6 to the computer so as to transfer contacts back to it directly.
  2. Scan contacts from iTunes backup.
  3. Preview and select all contacts to transfer. After scanning, you can pick out all contacts you need, and then, click Recover to Device. All contacts will be in your iPhone 6.


Notes: if you have an iCloud backup for those contacts you want to copy, you also can choose Recover from iCloud Backup mode. Just sign in with your Apple ID and password, then do as above process.

The above are the whole process to transfer or copy contacts from iPhone 4 to iPhone 6 with iFonebox. Just a few mouse click, all contacts will be transferred to your new iPhone 6 from iPhone 4, quite convenient.
