Method 2: Transfer Photos from Android to iPhone via Google Drive
Aside from Google Photos, Google Drive can also be used as an alternative. It’s perfect if the receiver of the photos or the iPhone you want the photos to be transferred to is far away. With Gdrive, you can just upload the photos and create a shareable link that anyone who has it can access.
If you don’t have Google Drive on your Android phone, you can install it from Google Play Store. After that, just log in to your Google account to be able to store photos.
Proceed to your Android phone’s Gallery and select the images you want to transfer to your iPhone. Then, tap on the Share button and choose Google Drive. There, select the target Google Account. You may also create a new folder to store the photos in one place.
After that, the photos will be uploaded to your Google Drive. When the uploading is complete, proceed to the Google Drive app and locate the folder where the photos are stored. Hit the 3-dot option beside it to reveal options.
There, select Manage Access/Link Sharing and tap on Change under General Access. Choose “Anyone with the link”. Then, go back and tap on the 3-dot option again. This time, select “Copy Link”.
Finally, send the link to the iPhone in question. Tap on it and Safari will launch, redirecting you to the Google Drive folder. There, you can download each photo or download the whole folder. Just tap on the 3-dot option and choose Download to do it.
Like Google Photos and other Google-related tools, there’s a 15-GB limit for each account. This can be a disadvantage if your Android phone produces high-quality photos with huge file sizes.
Method 3: Transfer Photos from Android to iPhone using a PC (Windows)
This method is the manual/traditional way to transfer photos regardless of whether you have an Android or iPhone. All you need to do is connect your Android/iPhone to the computer using a compatible USB data cable. Here’s how to do it:
Connect your Android phone to your PC. Make sure to unlock the lock screen first before doing it. For most Android phones, you may need to set up USB Transfer after connecting it to the PC. You can do it by scrolling down the notification bar and tapping on USB Settings > File Transfer.
When recognized, open File Explorer on your PC. Click on your device under This PC and look for DCIM or Photo folder. Right-click on it and choose “Copy”. Then, connect your iPhone.
There, click on your iPhone and right-click on an empty area. Then, select “New” and then “Folder”. Inside, right-click again and choose “Paste”. The transfer process will start and you just need to wait for it to finish.
Make sure not to disconnect or move the USB cable while transferring the photos as it could interrupt the process. It may even result in other photos getting corrupted.
Also, manually transferring your Android photos to your iPhone can be a bit time-consuming.
