We recently encountered a problem on the iMac regarding contact card info not showing in the Contacts App. Apple Communities provided an excellent fix which we’ve provided in this post.
Oddly, for no apparent reason (we had not updated or upgraded) the contacts started to play up on the iMac.
We’d recently changed the password on the iCloud account (as you should regularly do to increase security) but other than that it all appeared a bit strange.
So, we took to Google and the forums to try and find the answer to “Contact Card info not showing up in contacts“.
After much trawling of the internet, we found the answer that worked for us in the very helpful Apple Communities. The link is at the bottom of this blog post.
It appears there’s a bit of a glitch, and the simple remedy is to carry out the following steps:
- Go to System Preferences, Select iCloud and uncheck Contacts.
- Open new Finder, and on Menu Bar, Click on “Go” while holding down Option in the keyboard, which will show the “Library” Folder in the pull-down menu.
- Open the Folder “Application Support” & find the Folder AddressBook and Trash it with all its content.
- Return to the System Preferences & re-activate Contacts and launch, Contacts this will fix the issue and get all the contacts and Cards back.
Kudos to user P1234 for posting the solution that worked for us.
