I am using an iMac OS Sierra 10.13.4 desktop computer. When I try to add an email Contact to my contacts list, it will list in the appropriate letter section but it will not be in alphabetical order. It seems to drop in at any random position. Does anyone have any idea what I need to do to achieve alphabetical order please?

So does the iOS 12 only relate to iPhones, iPads and iPods?
Yes... that is correct. Since you mentioned you are on macOS 10.13.4, I moved yout thread to the macOS High Sierra forum.

If you look in the Contacts preference pane, there are some sorting options there. Check those to make sure they are set how you want.

OK. Thanks for moving it. I already have the Preferences sorting options set so hopefully someone will have some ideas for getting the contacts in order. Thanks for your help.
