A few days back we talked about import contacts from Excel to Windows Phone. And, today we are going to discuss how to import contacts from Yahoo to iCloud so that Yahoo contacts could be accessed from several iOS and other devices.

How to Import Contacts from Yahoo to iCloud?

Since there’s a no direct approach to move contacts from Yahoo to iCloud, therefore first we have to export contacts from Yahoo Account. After that only we can import contacts to our iCloud account. Below is how you can do so:

Step 1. Export Contacts from Yahoo Account

 

  • Open Yahoo Account and click on Contacts icon from the right panel
  • Click on More options from More icon
  • Choose Export (CSV)

 

 

  • All the Yahoo Contacts will start downloading in a CSV file after this.

Step 2. Import Yahoo Contacts to iCloud

 

The CSV exported from Yahoo Mail cannot be imported directly to iCloud account because iCloud supports to import vCard v3.0 or v4.0 only. So, first, you have to convert the exported CSV to vCard v3.0/v4.0 to initiate import contacts from Yahoo to iCloud process and below is how you can do so:

 

If you are a Windows user:
