Sorting Contacts on the Mac, iPad or iPhone can be a confusing.

The good news is… that’s all about to change. The bad news… you have to continue reading.

To get to Contact options on the Mac:

  • Open Contacts
  • Click on Contacts in the Menu Bar and select Preferences.
  • Choose the General Tab

To get to Contact options on the iPad or iPhone:

  • Tap Settings
  • Tap Mail, Contacts and Calenders
  • Scroll to the Contacts options near the bottom.

Apple provide two sort options.

Sort Order – Do you want contacts sorted from A to Z by First Name, Last Name or Last Name, First Name.

Display Order – After the contacts are sorted, how do you want to see the names displayed – First Name, Last Name or Last Name, First Name.

Make the Sort decision first, then make the Display decision.

There are only 4 possible combinations. Remember… if you don’t like what you see, you can change it any time you want.

Apple Mac Contacts - Sort Order 1

Apple Mac Contacts - Sort Order 2

Have a stress-free weekend 🙂
