Being an iOS device user may be a frustrating experience. On one side, you can own Apple’s coveted design, which no one appears to be able to equal in terms of beauty and usability.

Method 1: How to Quickly Delete and Merge Duplicate Contacts on iPhone
You can easily manage your iPhone contacts with Tenorshare iCareFone, including erasing duplicate iPhone contacts at once, transferring contacts from Mac to iPhone, and backing up contacts. At the same time, this program helps you clean up your iPad and iPod. Before you begin deleting several contacts, I must first remind you to complete the download and installation of the program. Windows users can, of course, download the Windows trial as well.
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac and, when the “Trust this Computer” notification appears on your iPhone, select “Trust.”
Step 2. To continue, select “File Manager” and then “Contacts.”
Step 3. Select “Duplicated” from the drop-down menu, and the software will identify all duplicates on your iPhone. Finally, click “Merge” to complete the process.
This program may also let you delete/import/transfer/remove files from your iPhone, such as: Notes, Calendars, Apps, Music, Videos, Bookmarks, Photos, without using iTunes or iCloud.

Method 2. How to Individually Erase Duplicate Contacts on iPhone
On your iPhone, you can erase individual contacts one by one. However, because it can only erase one at a time, it will be a lengthy process.
Step 1. Turn on your iPhone and go to “Contacts.”
Step 2. Go through the contacts list and choose a contact to delete. Then, in the upper-right corner, click “Edit.”
Step 3. Select “Delete Contact” and then press “Confirm.”
Step 4. If you wish to erase contacts, repeat the previous steps.
Method 3: How to Merge Duplicate Contacts on iPhone from Address Book
Address Book makes it simple to merge duplicate contacts automatically. Before you begin, make sure your iPhone or Address Book is synchronized and backed up with your MacBook.
Step 1. Open the Address Book and select “Card” from the “Card” menu.
Step 2. Select “Look for Duplicates” to receive a report on the number of duplicates discovered.
Step 3. To merge those contacts, click “Merge.”
