If you want to import just contacts from iPhone 5 to 6, I think a third party software is in need. Because with a third party software, you can extract contacts from your iTunes backup and transfer them all to your iPhone 6. Since there are too many such kind software, I want to take iFonebox as example.
As you may have known that, iFonebox is a professional iOS data recovery, which is not only supportive to extract contacts or other data from iTunes backup, but also recover your iPhone deleted data like messages, notes, reminders, etc. Plus, iFonebox is also a great helper to transfer all your notes and contacts to your iPhone 6 directly. So here, iFonebox is also helpful to import just contacts from iPhone 5 to iPhone 6.
Next you can run iFonebox. Choose “Recover from iTunes Backup”, for you have iPhone 5 backup. But don’t forget to connect your iPhone 6 to the computer.
Then iFonebox will start scanning your iTunes backup data automatically. After that, all the data will be shown in the main interface box.
In the end, just preview and select the contacts, click “Transfer all to the selected device” and all the contacts will be imported to your iPhone 6. Of course, you can also edit the contacts in the right side. Pretty convenient and powerful, right?
This is the whole process to import only contacts from iPhone 5 to 6 with iFonebox.
