In the wake of the release iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, I cannot wait to buy a shining gold-colored model. Then I realize a way to back up my old iPhone contacts to my computer and then transfer them to my new iPhone. You might feel strange and ask, why not just use iTunes? And I can tell you, iTunes is the last program in the world that I would use to move my iPhone contacts. Because I am on a new laptop and the music on the iPhone will get deleted during the sync with my new empty iTunes library. Each time I want to transfer my contacts to my PC via iTunes, the iTunes says: "The iPhone is synced with another iTunes library. Do you want to erase the iPhone and sync with this iTunes library?"
Fortunately, I found an amazing iPhone transfer tool - iPhone Transfer. It is a powerful program that can transfer contacts to computer without iTunes. Follow my tutorial carefully and you will back up iPhone contacts easily.
