How to Transfer Contacts from Android to iOS in Two Easy Ways
Move to iOS app
Let’s start with the basics first. Apple created the Move to iOS app to make it easier to transfer data from Android to a new iPhone. The app allows you to copy all your data including photos, calendars and email accounts at one time. Here’s what you need to do-
-First, download the Move to iOS app from Google Play Store on your Android device.
-Once installed, open the app and tap Continue.
-The terms and conditions will appear, tap Accept.
-You will need to allow access to location, contacts, calendar, storage and SMS.
-At the top, the Find your code screen will appear, tap Continue. You will then be asked to enter the code.
-On your new iPhone, go through the setup process until you get to the Apps & Data screen.
-Choose the option “Move data from Android”.
-Then enter the code that is displayed on the iPhone on your old Android device.
– Following that, a data transfer screen will show where you need to select the content you want to transfer. Select Contacts and tap Next.
-Keep devices inactive until the process is complete, when done, tap Done on the Android device and Continue on your iPhone.
Using the VCF file
-Open your Contacts app on your app, alternatively if your contacts are synced with your google account, you can go to contacts.google.com
-You can choose selected contacts or the whole list, then tap the three-dot menu or the gear icon to select the export / import option.
-You will find two options, tap on Export to vcf.file, if you do it through Google Contacts, select vCard (for iOS contacts).
– This will create a VCF file for your contacts in your phone memory.
-You can send this file to your new iPhone using iTunes or email it to yourself. But remember that the same email account must be signed in on your iPhone to download the file and save the list.
-You can also use your iCloud to copy the contact list, just sign in by entering the credentials and then tap on the Contacts option, after that tap on the three dot menu, you will find below the export / import option. Pressing it takes you to the page where the system saved the VCF file. Select it and follow the procedure. Your entire contact list will then be reflected on your new iPhone.
