How to share a contact on the iPhone

It could seem, that sending your own or someone’s contact information to another person using an iPhone is not difficult, Apple has made this process as simple as possible.

However, this is not true, which is very strange for a company, which tries to make its software as easy as possible for users.

Forward contacts to another person – not the most difficult task, however not the easiest. Before sending a data card make sure, that you indicated only that information, which you want to share. Some users write personal information to their card (eg, phone numbers), not intended for prying eyes, so before sending make sure, that there is nothing superfluous.

  1. Open application «Phone» or «Contacts».
  2. Select the desired contact.
  3. Scroll down, until the option appears «Share contact».
  4. Click on «Share contact» and choose how to send the selected contact.

If a person, to whom you send contacts, is near, and he has an iphone, you can use the airdrop function. If the recipient does not appear in the AirDrop list on your phone, ask him to activate the feature in «Control point» on your iPhone and select the option «Everything».

Because Apple uses the vCard standard, supported by all popular platforms, You can also send contacts by email, in a text message or using a third-party messenger.
