Occasions are common when we need to remove contacts from iPhone. As we know, Apple doesn’t allow you to delete multiple contacts on iPhone at once, which can be painstaking when you need to erase all contacts for reselling or passing on. Things are the same for the latest iPhone X/8/8 Plus. This passage summarizes 2 easy ways to delete single or multiple/all contacts on iPhone X/8/8 Plus.

Method 1. Remove Multiple/All Contacts from iPhone X/8/8 Plus at Once
Method 2. Clear iPhone X/8/8 Plus Contacts One by One

Method 1. Remove Multiple/All Contacts from iPhone X/8/8 Plus at Once

Erasing all contacts on iPhone can be a total nightmare since it only allows removing one contact at a time. How huge the workload is. Is there any other way to delete contacts on iPhone X/8/8 Plus in bulk? Unfortunately, there is no option to bulk delete contacts on iPhone/iPad. However, a third party software called Tenorshare iCareFone can definitely help you erase contacts on iPhone X/8/8 plus at once. It is an iOS file manager that enables you to manage (import, export, delete) your data on iDevice easily. (contacts, messages, photos, videos etc.)

Method 2. Clear iPhone X/8/8 Plus Contacts One by One

Deleting contacts on iOS 11.2/11.1/10.3.3 can be easily reached as Apple enables you to remove single contact in Contacts app. However, this is not an ideal method for batch deleting contacts on iPhone as you need to remove contacts one by one, which can be especially time-consuming. Follow the steps:

Step 1. Open Contacts app in your iPhone. Tap the contact you want to remove. Choose the “Edit” button at the upper right corner.

Step 2. Scroll down to the bottom. Tap “Delete Contact” > “Delete Contacts” again when alert message pops up.
