The iPad allows you to save contact information for the people you know using the Contacts app. You can use saved contact information to quickly place a FaceTime call, send an email, and more. The iPad allows you to create as many contacts as you need, so you'll always have important contact information with you.
To edit information for an existing contact, select the contact, then tap Edit.
If you want to add or edit several contacts at the same time, you might find it easier to use a computer with a traditional keyboard. To do this, simply navigate to www.iCloud.com, click Contacts, then add or edit your contacts as needed. When you're done, the information will be automatically synced to your iPad.
Your iPad must be connected with iCloud to use this feature. Review our lesson on Syncing Your iPad to learn how.
If you have many different people saved to your contacts list, it can be difficult to find a contact quickly. Fortunately, there are two easy ways to navigate your contacts.
If you'd like Siri to access your personal contact information, you'll need to set the My Info card. This will allow Siri to answer more complex requests, like Give me directions home or Remind me about my meeting when I get to work.
Before you can set the My Info card, you'll need to create a contact with your own name and information.
If you'd like Siri to understand your relationships to different contacts (for example, that Frank is your brother and that Susan is your mother), you can add relationship labels.
To add a relationship label, press and hold the Home button to access Siri, then explain the contact relationship.
After adding a relationship, Siri can respond to more personal requests, like Call my husband or Send mom a text message.
You can also manually set a relationship label for a contact. When viewing the contact, tap Edit, then scroll down and select add related name.
