Switching from Android phone to iPhone can be challenging – there is no single, seamless, one-click transfer process, unlike upgrading from one Android device to another (or from iPhone to another iPhone).But it is not so difficult. Depending on whether you want to set up a new iPhone or move some contacts to an existing iPhone, there are some ways to transfer contacts from Android device to iPhone.
There are many ways to transfer contacts from Android phone to iPhone.
How to transfer contacts from Android to a new iPhone with the Move to iOS app
Apple has created the Move to iOS app that helps you convert your Tele cells smartphone statistics from Android to the newest iPhone. This policy copies all your statistics, including contacts, calendars, photos, and electronic mail accounts.
Install the Move to iOS app on your Android device.
Follow the setup process on your new iPhone until you reach the “Apps & Data” screen.
Choose “Move Data from Android.”
Start the Move to iOS app on your Android.
Tap Continue on both devices and agree to the terms and conditions in Move to iOS, then tap Next.
In the Move to iOS app, enter the code that’s displayed on the iPhone.
Your iPhone will give you a code to enter in the Move to iOS app on your Android.
Follow the instructions to complete the transfer.
How to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone by syncing a Google account
This is a great option if you keep your contacts in a Google Account. It works with both the new iPhone and the one already set up. All you have to do is add your Google Account information to the iPhone:
On the iPhone, start the Settings app.
Tap “Passwords & Accounts.”
Add the Google account you used on your Android device to migrate contacts to your new phone.
Tap “Add Account” and then tap “Google.”
Follow the instructions to add your Google account to the iPhone. It’ll automatically sync all your Google info, including contacts.
How to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone using a VCF file
This is a great option if some of your contacts do not have a Google Account - so you can not sync accounts - or you just want to transfer some contacts. Step 1: On your Android phone, open the Contacts app. Step 2: Tap the three dots at the top right of the screen to open the menu, and then tap "Share." Step 3: The Share menu is available by tapping the three dots on the right side of the Contacts screen. Step 4: Choose the contacts you want to transfer. You can tap "All" or choose contacts one at a time. Step 5: When you're done, tap "Share." Step 6: Choose which contacts you want to send to your iPhone and then tap "Share." Step 7: If you only selected one contact, you'll need to select "VCF file." If you selected multiple contacts, VCF is your only choice. Step 8: Choose how you want to get the VCF file to your iPhone. The easiest option is probably email or text message. Send the file.
On the iPhone, open the VCF file and choose to add the contacts to your iPhone.
How to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone with a SIM card
You can use your Android SIM card as a transfer device to copy contacts. This is a much less convenient solution as the SIM cards need to be physically exchanged between phones. Step 1: On your Android phone, open the Contacts app. Step 2: Tap the three horizontal lines (the hamburger menu). Step 3: Tap "Manage contacts." Step 4: You can manage your contacts by tapping the three horizontal lines on the left side of the screen. Step 5: On the Manage contacts page, tap "Import/export contacts." Step 6: Tap "Export." Step 7: Choose where the contacts will be exported to - tap "SIM card." Step 8: Choose to export the contacts to your SIM card. Step 9: Choose which contacts you want to export. Tap "All" or tap contacts one at a time, and then tap "Done." Step 10: Tap "Export." You might need to confirm this selection. Step 11: Remove the SIM card from the Android phone and insert it in the iPhone. Step 12: On the iPhone, start the Settings app. Step 13: Tap "Contacts." Step 14: Tap "Import SIM Contacts." Step 15: Once you insert the SIM card in your iPhone, you can import the contact to iCloud or a Google account. Step 16: Choose the account on which you want to store the contacts.
