    I have an IPad Mini, running iOS 12.01. It seems like my contacts are backing up to iCloud. When I log into my iCloud account, I only show two entries backed up. On my IPad, I have lots of entries that aren't on my iCloud. When I go to the contact settings on my IPad, the default is Gmail. When I switch to iCloud and try to backup my data, the contacts doesn't transfer through. I have no issue with Gmail and my contacts on my IPad. it syncs up just fine and it works great, but I can't get it to work with my iCloud account.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what is going on?

    If Gmail to iCloud was ever supported, it's been a while, as Google stuff used to use ActiveSync iirc, and that got dropped a few years ago.

    Believe there are apps for this.

    By chance, do you know what is the app called, or what would I search under?

    Re: apps: do not have a specific one to give, but, should be able to find something with a search of "contact sync".
