Delete a contact

You can delete a contact at any time.

WARNING: When you delete a contact, it is deleted on every device that has the iCloud Contacts feature turned on. For example, if your iPhone and Mac have iCloud Contacts turned on, and you delete a contact with the iCloud Contacts web app, the contact is also deleted in the Contacts app on your iPhone and Mac.

Delete a contact

  • In iCloud Contacts, do either of the following:

    • To delete a contact completely, select the contact in the All Contacts list, then press the Delete key. Click Delete in the dialog that appears.

    • To delete a contact from a group, click the group on the left, select the contact, then press the Delete key.

      Deleting a contact from a group removes it from that group only.
