To store your contacts with iCloud, you’ll need to ensure iCloud Contacts is enabled on all your devices.
macOS: Enable iCloud Contacts
iOS / iPadOS: Enable iCloud Contacts
macOS: Contacts app
The Contacts app is located in Macintosh HD/Applications
Below is a screenshot of the Contacts app on macOS. By default, it doesn’t display Groups. Contact Groups are handy for sending emails to groups of contacts, for example. But it’s also especially useful to have Groups displayed if you have multiple accounts set up in Internet Accounts (covered in a separate lesson).
Groups are now displayed in the column on the left.
Note the ‘All Contacts’ group is located under the heading, iCloud. This tells us that the contacts we are viewing are stored with iCloud. This becomes especially relevant when you have more than one internet account: It’s useful to be aware of the location of your contacts.
Fill in the details and click Done (bottom right) when finished. You can always edit your contacts later.
With the ‘Football team’ group selected in the sidebar, we can see the contacts that have been added to the Group.
Groups can be used, for example, in the Mail app: when composing a new email, by typing ‘Football team’ in the To field, all members of the group will be added to the email.
