If you’ve switched from Android to iPhone, chances are you’re asking yourself two questions right now.
How to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone.
How to transfer data from Android to iPhone.
I know, it is something that makes us all very lazy when we change mobile devices, but it is necessary.
But don’t worry, because it is simpler than you might think and in a matter of a few minutes, you can have everything ready.
To transfer data from Android there are mainly two options:
- From the PC (using a program).
- From the Move to IOS application.
Both options are valid.
If I had to choose one, I would tell you that I prefer via PC.
Basically because there are programs that allow you to select the different files that you want to transfer, like the one I’m going to show you next.

How to Transfer Contacts from Android to iPhone with dr.fone
dr.fone is a program to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone in a very simple way and in just a couple of clicks.
To do this, you only need two cables, and a computer.
I am going to explain you step by step how to do it, but I also leave you a video in case you prefer to see it in more detail.
1) Download the program
The first step, obviously, will be to have previously downloaded the dr.fone program on your PC and installed it.
You have it available for both Windows and Mac.
2) Click copy
Once you have installed it, you will have to select the “Copy” option.
This option will allow you to copy data from one phone to another.
Before doing this, you must have connected the two devices via USB.
3) Select the option «Contacts»
Once the program has recognized the two devices, you will have to select the “Contacts” option and click “Start”
When you hit the Start button, the program will automatically start to transfer contacts from Android to IOS automatically.
Of course, do not disconnect the devices while the process lasts.
Also, this application is compatible with different brands of devices such as Samsung, HTC, Motorola, LG, Sony, Google, etc.
Sky Marketing is one of the leading real estate agency which deals mega projects lahore Smart City. The first smart city in Lahore include general block, overseas block, farmhouses with sport and health care facilities.
Another interesting function is that of ” WhatsApp Backup ”
This application allows to transfer data between Androrid and IOS.
That is, if you have a new device and transfer your WhatsApp account, your old conversions do not go automatically.
You would lose all your conversion history unless you have a backup.
The operation is very similar to the previous case.
The first thing is to click on “Backup WhatsApp”.
Then it will give you four options.
- Transfer messages.
- Back up messages.
- Restore messages to IOS devices.
- Restore messages to Android devices.
If what you want is to transfer messages, give the option to “Transfer WhatsApp Messages”
Then, you will only have to connect both devices via USB and select “Transfer”
You can also backup WhatsApp and transfer the chat from iCloud and Google Drive.
The only downside is that WhatsApp is limited to the same operating system, whereas with dr.fone it doesn’t matter.
How to transfer data from Android to iPhone with dr.fone
dr.fone will also allow us to transfer data from Android to IOS in a really fast way.

In this way, you can also transfer photos from Android to iPhone or any other type of files such as: videos, music, applications, notes, SMS, wallpapers, etc.
How to transfer data from Android to IOS with Move to IOS.
If you don’t want to use cables, there is another option for data from Android to IOS.
To do this, you will have to download the Move to IOS application.
Click to download Move to IOS
Once the application is downloaded, you will only have to follow the following steps:
Step 1: Check the connection
First of all, make sure you have Wi-Fi connected on both devices.
Check that you have enough space on your IOS device to be able to transfer data from Android in its entirety.
If you also want to transfer the bookmarks you have in Chrome, you will have to check that you have the most updated version of the browser.
Step 2: Click transfer Android data
When you are setting up your new iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, you will have to look for the Applications and data option.
Important: If you have already finished the configuration and you have forgotten this step, you have to erase the content of your IOS device and start over.
If you don’t want to start over, you can do it manually as explained in this article .
Step 3: Open the Move to IOS App
The next step will be to open the Move to IOS application on your Android device.
When you open it, you will have to accept the terms and conditions and click to continue.
Then you will have to click on «Next» in the upper right corner and on Find the code.
Step 4: Wait for the code
Now you have to go back to your IOS devices and click on Continue (having previously selected the “Transfer from Android” option.
You will have to wait for a ten or six digit code to appear.
Once you have it, enter the code on your Android and wait for the Transfer data screen to appear.
Step 5: Select the content
Select the data you want to transfer from Android to iPhone and wait until the loading bar has finished on both devices.
Depending on the amount and weight of the content that you are going to transfer, it will take more or less time.
Step 6: Configure your IOS device
The last step will be to finish the configuration of your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.
Select Accept on the Android device, and then do it on the IOS.
This way, it would be ready.
How to transfer contacts from IOS to Android with iCloud
Finally I am going to show you one last option to import contacts from IOS to Android in case you want to do the process in reverse.
For this, you will have to save your contacts in the vCard format, which I am sure will sound like Chinese to you, so I am going to explain how to do it.
Step 1: Access iCloud from your Android phone
The first step will be to access iCloud from your mobile browser.
To do this, obviously you will have to have created your account first.
Step 2: Select the contacts option
Once you are inside iCloud you will have to select the Contacts option.
As you see in the following image.
Your contact guide will open and you will have to select all or the ones you want.
Step 2: Select Export vCard
Once you have clear the contacts, you will have to click on Settings.
Select the Export vCard option.
In this way, all your contacts will be saved on your Android instantly.
What is the best way to transfer data from Android to IOS?
In this article I have shown you how you can do the process with a tool like dr.fone and the one that Apple itself has and with iCloud.
Which to choose?
I am going to show you a table with a series of characteristics as a summary so that you can evaluate both options.
|dr.fone||Go to IOS|
|Device Compatibility||Compatible with more than 8,000 IOS and Android devices.||Transfer data only to IOS devices from other devices|
|File types||Compatible with a maximum of 15 files to transfer to mobile.||Only compatible with 7 file types.|
|Ease||More easy||A little more complex|
|Transfer mode||Via USB||By Wi-Fi|
As you can see, transferring data or contacts from Android to IOS or vice versa is a simpler process than it seems.
The option that I recommend if you have two USB cables is to do it from the PC, because it usually gives less problems and allows you to select different types of files.
If you have any questions, see you in the comments.
