If you’re trying to arrange a party or group trip, texting each person individually can be seriously time-consuming. Here are some steps on how to make a contact group on an Apple iPhone.
Luckily, creating contact groups the way Apple intended is as easy as pie with iCloud. There are also a handful of free apps available in the App Store that can help you.
In this how-to guide, we’ll cover the ins and outs of creating a contact group with iCloud and offer a quick tutorial on how to make a contact group on an iPhone with a popular app called Groups.
Step 1: Go to iCloud.com and sign in to your iCloud account using your Apple ID and password. Then, select Contacts to view a list of your current contacts.
Step 2: Choose the plus sign at the bottom-left corner and click the New Group from the pop-up menu that appears.
Double-clicking the empty gray space may also be used to establish a new group rapidly.
Step 3: Give the group a name and save it by clicking anywhere outside the text box. A simple double-click will allow you to type a new name.
Step 4: You may add contacts to specific groups by selecting All Contacts from your contact list and then clicking and dragging the contacts you want to add.
Step 5: Click the gear icon in the bottom-left corner and choose Delete to remove a whole group or a single contact from the group. Keep in mind that this just removes the contact from the group; removing a group does not remove the contacts in it.
Step 6: It is the final step. Your group will be added to your iPhone’s contact list automatically. Use your new group by selecting it from the upper-left corner of your contacts page in the Contacts app, checking the boxes next to the groups you wish to use, and selecting Done.
Step 7: You can always utilize iCloud to restore a deleted group or contact from a deleted group. Please log in to your iCloud account and choose Settings. At this point, you’ll be presented with an extensive list of choices to restore your contact information, as well as calendars and bookmarks under the Advanced tab.
A message can be sent once you’ve formed a group of this kind. Create a new message in Messages to do this. Begin entering the group’s name in the To: field, and then touch on it when it appears. Next, compose and submit your message.
Tip: Allow your iPhone to sync with iCloud by default. That way, when you connect your phone to your computer, your groups will be synchronized with iCloud.
Using Groups, how can I create a contact group? (app)
It’s possible to form groups without using a computer using the free app Groups, which is accessible on the App Store.
Step 1: You’ll need to open the App Store on your iPhone and type “Groups” into the search area at the top. Tap the Get button, then Install after selecting Groups at the top of the list.
Step 2: Add a new label on the main Groups page by clicking the “Add New Label” button.
Step 3: Select No Contacts—Add Some from the drop-down menu on the New Group page. You’ll be able to add contacts after that. Add the contacts you want by clicking on them and then clicking Done. Personalize the group symbol by clicking on the blue symbol that appears next to the group name. Add everyone you want and modify your group to your satisfaction by tapping Done in the upper left corner of your screen. It’s vital to remember that you can add the same individual to many groups.
Step 4:After creating a group, you may add or remove contacts from it. Click the group’s name and look for a “Manage” option in its upper-right corner. After that, go over the list of contacts and decide on which ones to keep or discard. As soon as you’re done, click the Done button to return to your original page, and then click your group name at the top.
With iCloud, you can accomplish a wide range of tasks. Our iCloud guide is an excellent place to start if you’ve never used the service before. Apple’s servers are vulnerable to hackers since iCloud saves your data there. We strongly recommend that you utilize two-step verification to increase the security of your iCloud.
