Today we will see how to transfer all my contacts from iCloud to iCloud or Gmail from PC. ICloud accounts are used to save all information on your device and help you recover a deleted file from iCloud.

To transfer your contacts from one iCloud account to another or even send them to other platforms like Google, you need to first have backed up your your contacts from your iPhone device.

Grab your iPhone mobile device and go to Settings. The next thing will be to scroll through the options on iCloud and enter that section.



Next, you will see in the first section of iCloud, your account. In case you don't have it yet, you will need to create an email account in iCloud for free.

Further down, in the options of this section, you can see a list of all the applications that you have available on your device and that you can synchronize with iCloud to create a backup copy.

In this case, since we are interested in saving contacts to the cloud, we will press the Contacts switch and slide it to the right of the screen, so that it is green.

Then you need to scroll to the bottom of the list to Archiving and backup. On the next screen, click Manage storage to customize the contact details we want to save.

In there, go to the iPhone. You can customize the contact details you want to save, we recommend that you turn off the camera option, as it takes up too much space.

Once you have customized this section, go back to the previous menu and back up your device now from the Back up now option. Make sure you have turned on the iCloud Backup switch so that your contacts are saved on that account.



This way we will have activated contact synchronization or backup. Now you can access your contacts from any Apple device or browser by logging in with your iCloud account.
