Contacts: Your Digital Address Book | iOS 17 Guide

The Contacts app stores all of your saved numbers or email addresses. It’s easy to add or delete contacts within the app as well though.

To add a new contact tap the ‘+‘ icon in the top right, then enter the name and the details you wish to add. Next to each option there’s usually a short description, such as home. Tap this to see other options and change to the correct type.

To remove a contact go directly to its entry and tap Edit in the top right corner. Now scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap Delete Contact. Confirm that you want to remove it and it’ll be deleted.

You can also add, edit, and delete individual aspects of the contact’s entry from this same Edit view.

Note that the full Contacts app interface is also available through the Contacts tab of the Phone app.

Finding yourself

Ever have trouble remembering your own phone number? Here’s a quick way to find it.

Open the Phone app, select the Contacts tab and swipe to your name at the top of the page. This will open your contact card where you’ll be able to see your cell number, along with the rest of your contact details. If you have iOS 17 or later, you can also design your Contact Poster here.
