[iPhone 12 Pro]

Hello, I would like to transfer all contacts from an iPhone 6S + to a 12 pro without going through software and computer.
I would also like to avoid using the iCloud address.

How to save all contacts on outlook account ? I've tried this on my own and only managed to get a tiny fraction of my contacts attracted.

I would also like to know how to register my Apple ID by adding an Outlook address and not iCloud.

Thanks for your help. πŸ™

You can’t. You have to at least use of the following otherwise you can’t transfer your stuff over.

Also Apple doesn’t play nice with outlook anyways, you’re better off using Gmail for your contacts.

Download the app copy my data on both phone and it will copy to new phone

Use iCloud? Simplest way to store contacts, if not you can export them with apps and use that file to open on the new phone and import the contacts. It’s very odd you don’t want to just use iCloud with the same Apple ID.

Do you have a gmail account? You can have your 6s automatically push your contacts to gmail. Here is how to :

Settings> Contacts > Accounts > Choose Gmail/Outlook.

Also ensure in the same page, see ‘Fetch New Data’ is set to ‘Push’.

Repeat the same steps on your 12 pro.
