Find and Delete Duplicate iPhone Contacts with These Apps

My address book looks completely disorganized with too many duplicate contacts! No longer. Take a peek at the top 10 contact manager apps for iPhone and iPad to quickly find and delete unnecessary contacts and keep the address book neatly organized.

When you import contacts to your iPhone (or iCloud or iPad) in large numbers, there’s always the chance that you’ll end up with duplicates. And everyone knows how bad it is to handle duplicate contacts, find them and merge/delete them.

The stock Contacts app on the iPhone doesn’t feature anything close to a smart merge feature. If you want to find, remove/merge duplicate contacts on your iPhone, there are three options: do it manually or use the software on Mac/PC and then import contacts or use an iPhone app to remove duplicate contacts. This third option is what we’re exploring in this post.
