How to Transfer Contacts from iPhone to iPhone with Different Apple ID
Written By Axel Nash |
My wife and I share the same Apple ID. But, my wife is making her own Apple ID. We are not able to figure out how to move contacts selectively from one Apple ID to another.
If you are also experiencing a similar situation, then we can help transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone with different Apple IDs.
One Apple ID is connected to iCloud, which is how your contacts are saved. As you move data from one iPhone to the next, this iCloud ID helps retrieve contacts and other data.
But, when you need to move contacts from one Apple ID to another, what should you do?
Let’s find out:
