Why are my contacts not syncing correctly between iPhones and iMac?

Why are my contacts not syncing correctly between iPhones and iMac?

I have entered new contacts in certain "groups" into my personal Mac at home but the newly entered contacts will not transfer to my phones (yes, I have 2), and neither has the edited versions when I have synced them. Could the problem be, that my computer is not updated to the current software? I have Snow Leopard now

"There is a way to transfer contacts from iPhone to Mac via iCloud. you can follow it.

1.Sign in with your iCloud account and click ""Contacts""

2.From the list, select the contacts that you wish to export

3.Click the icon depicting a cog wheel, and select ""Export vCard""

Wait for the file to be downloaded on your Mac

supposing that the method does not work, seek help for iPhone Transfer."

Probably you are using different apple accounts on your Mac and Iphone, or go to settings-iCloud and on synchronization for contacts!

Using iPhone Transfer, all iPhone user can backup the contacts and contact's photo to computer as a txt file or a ANTC file. In ANTC file condition, you can protect the file with a password to keep your iPhone contacts privacy.

"Use iCloud to sync iPhone contacts to Mac. You just need to run iTunes on your Mac. Open iTunes, and under the info tab, the very top option is to Sync Address Book. Select this and alter the setup as per your requirements, you have fully synced contacts. Another option (this is what I do) is I use FonePaw iOS Transfer to manage my contacts.
