1. Making Use Of The Move To iOS App
Apple has ensured transferring data from Android to iPhone is not complicated with its Move to iOS application for Android phones, which can be installed from the Play Store. This application combines every data on your Android phone and then have them imported to your new iPhone device over Wi-Fi. It is a smooth process.
If you own an Android device or tab which runs Android 4.0 or higher and an iOS device which runs 9.3 or higher, get the Move to iOS application downloaded immediately. It will not transfer your Android applications but it will suggest things to you from the App store according to the application already installed on your Android phone. Free applications that match will always be shown to you for download as the transfer is going on. Paid applications that match will be included in your App Store Wishlist for you to buy later.
2. Making Use Of SIM Card
If you just care about transferring your contacts, your Android SIM card can make it happen. Because you are able to store address book data on an Android SIM, your contact can be backed up there and moved to your iOS device. Pls note that the SIM cards have to be of similar size in the two devices. Every iPhone starting from iPhone 5 makes use of Nano SIMs.
- Get the SIM card out of the Android phone.
- On your Android phone, open your Contact application, click “Menu” and head to Settings. Locate “Import/Export” and click it.
- Click “Export,” and after, the SIM card storage option.
- Remove the SIM card from your Android device and insert it into your new iOS device.
- On iPhone, launch the Settings application.
- Click Contacts. (If you are using a more ancient version, you will see Mail, Contacts, Calendars.)
- Click Import SIM Contacts.
When you are through with import, your contacts will be seen in the pre-installed Contacts application on your iPhone.

3. Making Use Of Google
The cloud can ensure all your data are in sync. It is a decent option to go for since both Android and iPhone support it. Adhere to these instructions:
- On your Android phone, ensure all contacts are backed up. The backup will happen automatically if you own a Google account and use it on your smartphone. You can click Settings, Account, the Google account you intend to sync, and then ensure Sync Contacts is toggled ON.
- After that, add your Google account to your iPhone.
- As soon as your account is set up, you can begin contact syncing immediately. If you cannot, head to Settings > Passwords & Accounts and click the Gmail account.
- Ensure the Contacts slider is moved to on, and the contacts you added to your Google account will sync to your iPhone.
Henceforth, any alterations you make on your iPhone address book syncs to your Google account. You will require a full copy of your address book in double places, wisely backed up and prepared to be transferred to a different phone as you please.
You can also use Yahoo to sync your contacts to the iPhone instead of Google. How to go about that is identical.
