Transferring iPhone contacts to computer is a great way to keep your contacts safe. Actually, you can transfer your iPhone contacts with 3 ways: iTunes, iCloud and PC. However, PC is the safest way to do that. Why do I say that?

For iTunes backup, there is only one backup file you can create that when you sync iPhone with iTunes, the last backup will be covered. You can’t make sure all the history contacts are reserved.
And for iCloud backup, you have to erase your iPhone to restore contacts from iCloud which means you will lose the current contacts on your iPhone. Therefore, the smartest way is to backup iPhone contacts to computer.
