    Your iPhone contacts are automatically synchronized from your phone to the computer, nevertheless it is on you to decide as to you want to make any specifications as to where you want to save or secure the information. Now using the connection cord you need to attach your phone. After which you can go to the iPhone segment in the iTunes application and then select the “info” tab and move to the contacts segment. Here you need to check in the box for the option which says "Sync Address Book Contacts".
