How do we work with the address book, where all our contacts are stored (phones, names, notes, etc.)? In most cases – how God puts on the soul. As a result – no organization, a lot of unnecessary and, most offensively, duplicating contacts. How to restore order?
If you use your iPhone in conjunction with a Mac under the same Apple ID account, then the contact list on your smartphone and computer should be identical. Check if the contacts option in iOS is activated along the way Settings → Apple ID (your name) → iCloud → Contacts.
On Mac, contact syncing with iCloud turns on along the way System settings → Apple ID → iCloud → Contacts.
Understand where old, and where current contacts, for obvious reasons, we will not help you. But to deal with the “takes”, if you have a computer or laptop from Apple – easily!

How to find and combine duplicate contacts in iPhone Phonebook on macOS
1. Launch the Contacts app on your Mac;
2. In the menu bar at the top, select Card → Find duplicates;
3. After a few seconds (it all depends on the size of your address book) macOS will display information about the presence – or absence – of duplicate entries.
If there are “duplicates” in your address book (and they will probably be there if you have not checked your contacts for several years), macOS will suggest combining these cards into one. Unfortunately, the system does not yet show which cards it combines.
Done! Now there will be no “extra” entries in your “file cabinet”, and it will become more convenient to use it.
