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.
Have a stress-free weekend 🙂
