I just noticed that all my new contacts was saved to local phone storage instead of iCloud (I saw Settings – Mail, Contacts, Calendars – Contacts – Default account – “On iPhone”). How to transfer all my local storage contacts back to iCloud?


If you enable contacts in iCloud settings it should ask you to do so. If it is enabled already, perhaps try to turn it off and on again?

  • yes, it helps me. I not longer see local contacts storage, only iCloud now. – Даниил Пронин Mar 23 '14 at 5:55

    Turning off iCloud contacts, iOS 8 will ask you if you'd like to keep them on your phone, say yes, then turn iCloud contacts back on, and it will auto-import everything from your phone to iCloud. This had me stymied for a few days but it worked, and imported everything. – Matt Haughey Apr 8 '15 at 2:59
