How to Sync iPhone Contacts to Ubuntu

Ubuntu is free open-source software that is available for download in 24 different languages. It provides users with a normal operating system and many different applications that include office software, music players, movie editors, image editors, Flash Player, etc. Many users embrace this technology because it offers these conveniences for little to no cost. One more convenience awaits those uses with iPhones. If you have an iPhone, you can synchronise the contacts in your address book directly with Ubuntu automatically, which will save you time (and frustration) if something were to happen to your cell phone.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Sign into your Ubuntu One account. If you do not have an Ubuntu One account, you can register for free on the Ubuntu website.

  2. 2

    Go to your preferences (which can be accessed by clicking on your username in the upper right-hand corner of the screen). Click on the "Devices" tab and then click on the "Connect" button. The system will give you further synchronisation instructions based on your specific phone model.

  3. 3

    Monitor your synchronisation preferences. Remember that if you decide not to keep this feature when your 30-day trial is completed, you must call to cancel it in order to prevent additional monthly charges.

Tips and warnings

  • According to the Ubuntu website, synchronisation capabilities have been extended to support Windows and Mac users, but it is only available to paid Ubuntu One subscribers.
