iPhones usually do a good job of syncing and updating contacts across apps and devices. You can sync Outlook contacts on iPhone using Settings, iTunes, iCloud, via email, by importing as vCards, or through Exchange.
- Open Settings and tap Outlook > Contacts.
- Switch Background App Refresh on to the green.
- Open the Outlook app and go to Settings > your account> Sync Contacts
Before syncing your Outlook contacts to your iPhone with iCloud, ensure the iCloud control panel for Windows is available.
Note: iCloud doesn’t let you sync only contacts to the cloud. If you don’t mind uploading your calendars, mail, and contacts altogether to iCloud storage, take the steps below.
- Launch iCloud on your PC and sign in with your ID and password.
- Tap the Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Tasks checkbox.
- Tap Apply.
You can transfer your Outlook contacts to your iPhone using your email, though it’s a bit of a lengthy process.
- Open the Outlook desktop application.
- Click File > Open > Import.
- In the Import/Export wizard, select Export to a file.
- Click Next
- Click Comma Separated Values (Windows) and click Next.
- Select the folder with the contacts you’d like to export and click Next.
- Name your CSV file, save it, and click Next > Finish.
- Compose a new email and upload the CSV file Outlook generates as an attachment, and send it to an email address connected to your iPhone.
- On your iPhone, open the email, tap the attachment, and follow the steps up to the Add All Contacts option.
Note: Not all iOS devices work with CSV files the same way. Some offer only a preview of the file without prompting you to add them as contacts.
