Hi, here is my situation: I have an iPhone with iOS 12. I have all the contacts on my iPhone and I hope to be able to transfer them to the PC so that I can import them, later, in other devices. I know that iTunes can back up to computer, but not selectively (I only need to backup the address book). Is there any other way I can transfer my iPhone address book to computer in order to use them? I hope you can help me. Thanks!
