How to delete contacts from your iPhone?

Contacts are elementary to any smartphone but over time it’s possible that after multiple backups and restorations as you shift phones, certain contacts might be overlapping or might’ve even become redundant if the person changed their number.

If you want to clean up your contact book, you can always choose to add them to a Group and hide them if necessary, but if you want to delete a single, multiple or all of the contacts from your iPhone, here are three methods that will help you exactly that without requiring a third-party app.
