Deleting contacts from your iPhone is easy and can be done in several ways. This article describes how best to delete a single contact, multiple contacts, or all your contacts.
Maybe it's time to clean the house, or you just do not need contacts anymore. However, here's how to remove contacts from your iPhone.
Delete a single contact
Go to Contacts and tap the contact you want to remove.
Tap Edit> Delete contact.
Confirm that you want to delete the contact by tapping "Delete contact".
Delete all contacts from source
iPhones can retrieve contacts from email accounts such as Gmail, Outlook or Yahoo Mail. Overall, it's really easy to add and remove contacts on your iPhone. If you remove a contact from a linked account or from your iPhone (as described above), it will be removed in both places. To delete all contacts from a single source, you can either delete the entire account or disable the synchronization of contacts from this source.
For the sources associated, go to Settings> Passwords and Accounts.
The accounts that sync contacts are marked with the word "Contacts."
Tap the account from which you want to delete the contacts. From there, you can turn off contact sync by tapping the Contacts button and tapping Delete from my iPhone.
You can also delete the entire account (e-mail, contacts, calendars, and notes) by clicking on Delete Account > Tap Delete from my iPhone.
Delete some contacts, but not all
This is where it gets tricky. There is no way to delete multiple contacts on an iPhone (unless you delete them all) – it's all or nothing. However, not everything is lost. You can delete these contacts from the source account, and these changes sync with your iPhone. Depending on where your contacts are, there are several ways to remove multiple contacts. Consult your vendor's documentation (for example, Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo Mail).
Now, consider: What if it's a contact that's stored on my iPhone and not in an account? You are lucky, because there is a workaround. Go to icloud.com and sign in with your iCloud credentials.
