Can I extract iPhone contacts to a CSV file on computer?

I'd like to extract my contacts from iPhone as a CSV file. It should be a single CSV file with all contacts, not separate contacts on each file. Is there any possibility? Please let me know it. Thanks in advance.

Yes, it's possible. There are two ways for you to extract your iPhone contacts to a CSV file. The one is to extract it from your iTunes backup, and the other is to directly extract the contacts on your iPhone. Whatever way you choose, you'd better have an iPhone contacts extractor tool installed on your computer at first.

Don't have one? You can have my recommendation here: dr.fone - iPhone Data Recovery, 100% safe and professional. Both versions of the software enable you to extract contacts either on iPhone nor in iTunes backup or iCloud backup. With a few clicks, you can get a contacts list in CSV format on your PC or Mac.
