Question: iPhone 8 plus not saving contacts

I tried to enter a new contact, phone contact. etc. on my iPhone 8 plus.

The iPhone 8 plus will not save it.

I entered the same contact into my contacts on our iMac desktop and it saved there but did not transfer to my iPhone 8 plus.

How can I fix this issue and enter new contacts into my iPhone 8 plus?

Thank you in advance.

iPhone 6s Plus, Other OS

Answer:
Answer:

It sounds like you're not using iCloud for your contacts. Go to settings>contacts and check the default account setting. Change it to iCloud and when you create contacts on one device, they should sync to the other.

Thank you for the reply.

Allow Changes was already turned on.

Another reply worked, though.

I had to change the default settings to iCloud.

Not sure how this changed since I had been able to add contacts.

But. Thank you anyway.
