Exporting Contacts from Apple Contacts

To export contacts from Apple Contacts to prepare for importing into G-Suite, begin by mass selecting the contacts you want to export, then drag them to the desktop. Or select them, then choose File > Export > Export vCard.  The contacts are exported as a vCard file (.vcf).

Note: To exclude notes and photos when you export contacts, choose Contacts > Preferences, click vCard, then deselect “Export notes in vCards” and “Export photos in vCards.”
