It’s now easier than ever to share contacts with Mac and PC users.

Contacts are sent as vCards, the most common format for business card files.

Share Contacts From Your Mac:

  • Open Contacts
  • Select on a contact that you wish to share.

Apple Mac Contacts

  • Click the share button at the bottom of the screen.

  • You have three share options:
    • Email Card
    • Message Card
    • Airdrop Card

  • Choose the option you like, fill in the addressee details, and click Send.

These instructions are for Mac users running OSX 10.8 Mountain Lion

Share Contacts From Your iPhone Or iPad:

  • Open Contacts

  • Scroll down and tap Share Contact.

  • You have three share options:
    • Airdrop
    • Message

This method is for sending an individual contact card.

If you want to send multiple contact cards at the same time, this can only be done from a Mac.

Share Multiple Contacts From Your Mac:

  • In the Menu Bar, choose File, then Export…, and Export vCard.
