Whether you want to copy some of your personal contacts to your work Outlook account, remove your private information from iCloud, or simply copy contacts to the PC, this guide will help you to import iCloud contacts to Outlook in one go.
iCloud allows you to export contacts to a single VCF file. The problem is Outlook will only import the first contact from this VCF file. It’s an Outlook limitation that you can easily go around by following the steps below. Let’s begin.

You can export iCloud contacts into a single file and then import VCF into Outlook, but Outlook will only import the first contact from this VCF file. To duck this issue, use CopyTrans Contacts to import contacts from iCloud to Outlook in a few clicks.
