I have an iPhone which I will shortly be losing. I want to copy the contacts from it to Outlook 2016 on my Windows 10 laptop. My new phone will be either iPhone or Android (not yet decided), and I would like to sync Outlook 2016 with whatever phone I decide to buy in the future.
In the short term, how can I copy the contacts from my current iPhone to Outlook 2016? I've read another thread which suggested creating a Microsoft cloud account, adding it to the iPhone, then syncing, but I'm concerned that the initial sync will wipe all of the contacts from the iPhone (I've had that sort of problem before when moving between devices with iTunes), so want to make sure that the contacts on the iPhone are backed up or copied somewhere before I perform any sort of sync.
