Want to send the same message to multiple contacts on iPhone?

This is especially important for a party invitation or a vacation discussion.

So, in this article, we’ll show you how to create a Contact group on iPhone?

It’s possible to create a contact group on iPhone, but only via iCloud or third-party apps, not directly on the device. Furthermore, even if your iPhone is set to “Do not disturb,” the members in your group can contact you.

To create a contact group on your iPhone using iCloud, follow the instructions below –

  1. Login in to your iCloud account at www.icloud.com.
  2. Select the Contacts tab from your iCloud Account.
  3. Now, from the screen, tap on the + button in the lowermost left corner, then select New Group from the drop-down menu.
  4. A New Contact Group with the name Untitled Group will be formed.
  5. Give the Contact Group a name and press Enter to save your choice.

Once you’ve made a Contact Group, you can add contacts to it by choosing them from the All-Contacts screen and dragging them to the Contact Group.

  1. In the left-hand side, choose All Contacts. Select the contacts you want to add to the Contact Group in the right-hand side.
  2. After choosing the Contacts, drag them to the left pane and drop contacts into a New Contact Group.
  3. Once the Contacts have been selected, simply drag it to the Contact Group on the left-side.

After you’ve created a Contact Group, you will be able to access and view it on your iOS device.

  1. On your iPhone, launch Contacts app and select Groups.
  2. Under the “iCloud” area of the Groups screen, you’ll notice the new Contact Group you just created.
  3. Select the Contact Group by touching on it, then hit Done to see the Contacts in it.

To erase Contacts from a Contact Group on iPhone, you’ll need to return to your Mac or Windows computer and follow the procedures outlined below.

  1. On your computer, go to www.icloud.com and sign in to your iCloud account.
  2. Go to your iCloud Account and select the Contacts tab.
  3. Next, select the Contact Group from which you wish to remove Contacts on the next screen.
  4. Select the Contact you want to remove from this Contact Group in the right-hand window.
  5. Select Contacts, then click the Gear symbol (lower left corner) and select Delete from the menu that displays.
  6. Selecting the Delete option will remove the specified Contact/Contacts from the Contact Group.

Aside from iCloud, third-party apps can be used to quickly build a contact group on the iPhone. ‘Groups’ is one of the popular apps that can be downloaded from the App store. It is available for free with in-app purchases.

  1. On your iPhone, download and open the Groups app.
  2. To make a new group, tap ‘Add New Label.’
  3. Go to the New Group tab and give your contact list a name.
  4. To begin adding contacts, tap ‘No Contacts — Add Some.’ Note: Selecting ‘Manage‘in the top right corner allows you to add or remove contacts.
  5. Press the Done button.
