Hi, here is what my situation is: I have an old iPhone running iOS 9. I have all my contacts on my iPhone and wish to transfer them to my PC so that I can then import them to my other devices. I know iTunes can back it up on the computer, but I can't use the backup file for the format. Is there any way that I can transfer my iPhone contacts to computer and use them conveniently?
