How to Delete Multiple iPhone Contacts from iCloud at Once

Your iPhone requires cleaning at the regular interval; what is useless has to be deleted to save some space. Frequent spring-cleaning is necessary for the good health of your iPhone. While you are removing the junk from every nook and corner of your phone, Contacts should not be left behind in this cleaning exercise.

Every year, we pile up many contacts on our phone book and the next year, we might cut ties with those short-term contacts. This compels us to delete such names and numbers from our contact list. If you remove such contacts one by one, it will take hell lot of time. So how would you delete multiple contacts from your iPhone?

Well, your iCloud account can help you now. Unlike Android phones, from where you can easily select and delete more than one contacts, iOS devices offer no simple method to delete multiple contacts; unless you have synced your iOS devices on iCloud. We assume that you have already synced your iPhone with iCloud.

Before you start deleting multiple contacts, toggle your iCloud Backup on.
