How to delete multiple contacts on iPhone

Last week, I moved to iPhone from Android. I transferred my entire data from the old Android to the new iPhone including contacts. While scrolling to the contacts, I noticed many names saved two times means doubled contacts. I know it was happening because of sync between iCloud and Gmail, etc. But the sad part was that there was no option to delete multiple contacts on iPhone. 

Hence, I tried to delete the repeated contacts one by one on my iPhone. But it was so time-consuming. After a couple of hours, I asked my other iOS user, who has been using iPhone for a decade. And finally, I came to the solution. Yes, a third-party app called “Group” to delete multiple contacts at once on iPhone. Doesn’t matter which iOS update you are running. This method will help you to delete duplicate contacts on your iPhone at once. Without further delay, let’s take you to the guide.
