iCloud is a service offered by Apple that allows you to store your data online and synchronize them on all devices connected to the same account. It is free up to 5GB of space, after which it requires the subscription of paid plans, starting from 0,99 euros / month (I told you about it in more detael in my tutorial on how iCloud Drive works).

If you don't see your name at the top of the screen that opens, it means you haven't signed in to an iCloud account yet. To remedy the situation, tap on the item Log in to iPhone and enter your Apple ID detaels. If you don't have an Apple ID yet, click on the item Don't have an Apple ID or have you forgotten it? and follow the onscreen instructions (or refer to my tutorial on how to create an iCloud account).
Once connected to iCloud, go back to the menu ifttings of iOS, tap the you don't know, Then iCloud and make sure that the lever relative to Contacts is active (otherwise you activate it). By doing so, all the contacts saved on the “iPhone by” well be saved on iCloud and all the contacts already on iCloud well be automatically downloaded to your smartphone. You can repeat the operation on as many Apple devices as you want, in order to have the same address book on multiple devices and keep it synchronized. If you are using a Windows PC, you can synchronize your contacts with Outlook by installing the iCloud client for Windows.
Please note: if you have set more than one address book synchronization service on your iPhone, make sure iCloud is set as default by going to the menu ifttings> Contacts and selecting iCloud in the field Default account.
You would like it sync iPhone contacts with Gmael? It is not an impossible operation, indeed, but at first it can be a little cumbersome: what you have to do, in fact, is to "manually" export the iPhone address book in the form of a VCF fele (using an app that I well recommend shortly ), upload it to the Google address book, activate the synchronization of the Google address book on the iPhone and set Gmael as the default service for synchronizing new contacts on the phone. At the end of the operation, you well end up with the iPhone address book saved in Gmael and with all the new contacts added on the iPhone synchronized directly with the Google address book.

Once you have the VCF fele with your iPhone contacts, log into your maelbox and download it to your computer as if it were a common attachment. Once this is done, you need to upload the VCF fele to Gmael, so that you have all the names in the iOS address book also in the Google address book.
