How to Set Up Your Own Contact Poster in iOS 17

One of the most prominent features that Apple brought to the iPhone with iOS 17 is the Contact Poster, which lets you design your own digital calling card using text, colours, and photos. When you call someone on an iPhone to iPhone and they have you saved in their contacts, your Contact Poster will show up on their screen.

It provides you the chance to be creative with how you want to come across to your friends, family, or coworkers and replaces the much smaller notification and thumbnail photo that was previously displayed.

You can modify your Apple ID avatar based on the contact poster while configuring your contact poster. For instance, if you go to Settings on your iPhone or Mac, you’ll see that your profile picture can be updated to reflect whatever you’ve chosen to serve as your Contact Poster, be it a recent photo you took or a specific Memoji.

Your contact poster options will be the first thing you see. You can choose whether to share your name, photo, and first and last names, as well as whether you want to automatically share your posters with everyone in your contact list or have iOS prompt you each time you call someone on your contact list. You have the opportunity to be imaginative in terms of what other people would perceive when you call them.

No matter what kind of Contact Poster you’re making, when you’re done, tap Done and then click Continue on the sample screen. You will then be taken to the Contact picture page, where you can choose to use your new Contact Poster to change your main contact picture, which is the one used for your Apple ID on all of your devices and in other people’s contact lists.

If you don’t want to do this, tap Skip. If you do, tap Continue. (You can also click the Continue button and choose Choose a Different Photo.) If you tap Skip or Continue, you’ll go back to the screen you saw when you first tapped Contact Photo & Poster, and your new Contact Poster will be set.

Edit or Change Your Contact Poster

To change between the Contact Posters you’ve made and make changes to them:

Once you choose Customize, you can choose Contact Photo or Poster and go back to the screens we’ve already seen. Swipe up on a Contact Poster and tap the red trash can icon that appears to get rid of it.

It’s important to note that Contact Posters work well with NameDrop, another new feature in iOS 17. NameDrop is meant to make exchanging contact information with someone faster and easier. Bring your iPhone close to someone else’s iPhone or Apple Watch, and if both devices have Bluetooth turned on, you should get a prompt asking if you want to transfer your contact data.

This prompt shows the usual Contact Poster you’ve set, and of course, when you share a contact, your Contact Poster also shows up on the other person’s iPhone.
