Method 2: Transfer Contacts from Android to iPhone via Google Sync
Another way to transfer your contacts cross-platform is by syncing them using your Google Account. For this to work, you must log in to a Google Account on your Android phone to get the contacts. This can be done through the phone’s Settings. Follow the steps below:
On your Android phone, go to Settings and open Accounts or Accounts & Backup. There, look for your Google account. If you haven’t added one yet, just tap on the plus button (+) to add an account.
Next, tap your Google account and select Sync Accounts. Then, tap Contacts and there should be a loading animation right after. Once it’s done, the contacts are synced to your Google account.
Proceed to your iPhone Settings and then look for the Mail, Contacts, and Calendar option. In there, choose Add Account. You may also find the Add account in the Accounts and Passwords section.
Choose Google and enter the same account credentials. Then, agree to the Terms and conditions right after. Syncing permission will appear on the screen, toggle on Contacts to finalize the process.
You may now check your iPhone’s Contacts app to see if your Android contacts have been successfully transferred.
Method 3: Move Contacts from Android to iPhone with Move to iOS
Well, if you’re also moving from a Samsung/Android phone to an iPhone, you can try using Apple’s Move to iOS app. It’s an Android app that’s dedicated to those who want to transfer from Android to iPhone. Basically, it can transfer messages, contacts, WhatsApp content, accounts, calendars, and camera photos/videos.
Install Move to iOS on your Android phone. You can search for it on Google Play Store. Then, go to your iPhone and proceed to Apps & Data in Settings. There, select Move Data from Android and tap Continue.
A unique code should appear on your iPhone’s screen. When that happens, launch Move to iOS on your Android phone and tap Continue. Then, read and accept the Terms and Conditions. After that, enter the code and tap the Continue and Connect buttons subsequently.
On your Android phone, select Contacts and the other data you want to transfer. Then, tap Continue to start the transfer. Just wait until the progress bar is full then hit “Continue Setting Up iPhone”.
While this method seems easy, we can only recommend this if you don’t have existing contacts and other files on your iPhone. The app is meant for new iPhones as it overwrites and replaces old data with new ones. Data loss could happen.
Also, since this is a wireless transfer, it could take some time depending on the size of the data being transferred.
Method 4: Transfer Contacts from Android to iPhone with iCareFone iTransGo
It’s not an issue if you don’t have a Google account, you have more than 250 contacts, or you want a faster transfer without data loss. There’s an app called iCareFone iTransGo that can help you with all that.
The program is specifically designed to transfer phone data, like contacts, from Android to iPhone by scanning and then transferring them in just one click. The thing that sets iTransGo apart from the previous methods is that it can detect and transfer contacts from both your SIM card and your phone’s internal storage. You won’t miss any contacts at all.
