With just a few taps, all multiple contact cards for the same person can be merged into one entry, ensuring that your contact list is organized and up-to-date.
This tutorial will explain how to declutter your contacts list using this new feature.
To Merge Duplicate iPhone Contacts:
1) Open Your Contacts App
2) Tap Contacts from the bottom, and Lists on top.
3) Tap to view All your Contacts.
