Contacts just naturally accumulate, but smartphones and e-mail systems collect information about the people we interact with in very different ways. Guess many of you are looking for ways to sync Gmail contacts with iPhone contacts. Look no further. All you need to know is included in the following paragraphs.

Google announced a new, easier way for Gmail users to sync their Google Contacts to their iOS devices. The company is introducing support for an open protocol called CardDAV, which will allow third party clients, including, most notably, the native iOS Contacts app, the ability to sync with Google Contacts.

Why CardDAV

You may find that there are already a number of ways to get your Google Contacts onto your iPhone. For example, the Apple app stores on iOS and Mac contain several third-party clients which offer the ability to sync Google contacts to your device. You can configure iTunes to specifically sync your Google Contacts, if you're eschewing iCloud, you can set up Google Sync. But the new CardDAV support means you can quickly set up contact sync directly on your phone in just a few steps, if you have yet to import your Google contacts through another means.
