Switching from Gmail to iPhone 14 and want to take your contacts with you? No problem! All it takes is a few simple steps and you’ll have all your important contacts in your new device. Let’s dive into how you can make this happen.

Step by Step Tutorial on How to Import Contacts from Gmail to iPhone 14

Before we get into the nitty-gritty, let’s understand what we’re about to do. We’re going to transfer your contacts from your Gmail account to your iPhone 14. This means you’ll be able to access your contacts list on your new iPhone without having to manually input each one. Ready? Let’s go!

Step 1: Make Sure You Have a Gmail Account

First things first, you need a Gmail account with contacts saved on it. If you don’t have one, this tutorial won’t be of much help.

Having a Gmail account is crucial because that’s where your contacts are currently stored. If you don’t have one, you’ll need to create one and save your contacts there first.

Step 2: On Your iPhone 14, Go to Settings

Now, grab your iPhone 14 and tap on the ‘Settings’ icon. It’s the one that looks like a gear.

In ‘Settings’, you’re going to make some tweaks that will allow your Gmail contacts to show up on your iPhone.

Step 3: Scroll Down and Tap ‘Contacts’

Once you’re in ‘Settings’, scroll down until you see the ‘Contacts’ option and tap on it.

In ‘Contacts’, you’ll find various settings related to how your iPhone 14 handles contact information.

Step 4: Tap on ‘Accounts’

Inside ‘Contacts’, look for the ‘Accounts’ option and give it a tap.

‘Accounts’ is where you can manage the various accounts (like Gmail or iCloud) that your contacts could be synced with.

Step 5: Tap on ‘Add Account’

In ‘Accounts’, you will see an option to ‘Add Account’. Tap on this to proceed.

By tapping ‘Add Account’, you’re starting the process of adding your Gmail account to your iPhone 14.

Step 6: Select ‘Google’ from the List of Options

You’ll see a list of different account types. Choose ‘Google’ because that’s where your contacts are at the moment.

Selecting ‘Google’ tells your iPhone that you want to sync your Google contacts with your iPhone.

Step 7: Enter Your Gmail Login Information

Now, you’ll need to input your Gmail email address and password. Make sure you enter this information correctly.

By entering your Gmail login information, you’re giving your iPhone access to the contacts stored in your Gmail account.

Step 8: Turn on the Toggle Next to Contacts

After logging in, you’ll see a toggle next to ‘Contacts’. Make sure this is turned on (it should be green).

Turning on this toggle is the final step that allows your Gmail contacts to be imported into your iPhone 14.

After completing these steps, your iPhone 14 will start importing contacts from your Gmail account. It might take a few minutes, depending on how many contacts you have. Once it’s done, you’ll be able to access all your Gmail contacts right from your iPhone’s Contacts app.
