Is there a way to delete all contacts on iPhone instantly?

At the moment I haven’t really found a practical trick to delete all iPhone contacts completely, it’s better to delete them one by one. Even if there is, you definitely need to install additional iPhone applications such as the Groups application, but it’s even more complicated, it’s better to use the manual method above.

This method isn’t too bad either, because you can select several contacts that might still be important enough to contact later.

But if you have too many contacts and are sure you want to delete all contacts on your iPhone, you can do the method below.

  1. Open the app Arrangement.
  2. Then go to your Apple ID.
  3. After that press menu iCloud.

  5. Then you need to press confirm Delete from My iPhone. Then all iPhone contacts that are synchronized will be deleted simultaneously.
  6. Finally check in the Contacts application, all contacts have been deleted.

By following the steps above, the contact number should be deleted. If it is not deleted, try restarting the iPhone if necessary.

How to Delete Contacts on iPhone Directly Using the Groups Application
