If you have a populated Contacts list, there will be times when you need to share them with others. Here’s how to easily share contact information from your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

Share Email Contacts iOS

First, tap the Contacts icon on your home screen.


The Contacts app opens. Then select the person’s information you want to send. Then tap Share Contact.
All Contacts

Tap Email when the Share Contact Using box comes up.


The contact’s info will be included as a vCard (VCF) file attachment. VCF files are compatible most email applications, including Outlook.

Email VCF

The recipient can tap or double click the file to add the info to their email client.


A VCF file contains more contact information like websites, phone numbers, addresses and more. This is handy in business and better than just sending an email address.
