Add vCard to contacts on iOS13

The latest update of Apple to iOS13 brought many new cool features and an improved QR Code Reader

However, the way of adding a contact to the address book became more inconvenient. When you tap the “Add to contact”-Button on a mobile business card until iOS12 it was possible to save the contact to the address book with one tab. Now when Safari detects a vCard it displays the contact, but there is no easy way to get it in your address book. In the following we will show you the 4 steps how to add a business card to your address book.

1. Tap on Contact Icon

First you need to tap on the contact icon on the mobile business card on the right bottom.

Since Apple is changing features and routines in every iOS update, we have sent them feedback to simplify to add to contact option again for a better user experience. Until then iOS13 users will need to follow this tutorial. We are sorry for the inconvenience. A small video shows you how to add a contact in 10 seconds
