How to Transfer Contacts from Android to iPhone?

It can be difficult to switch from an Android phone to an iPhone since there isn’t a single, simple, one-click method for doing so, unlike switching from one iPhone to another iPhone or from one Android device to another.

However, it’s not that challenging either. Depending on whether you want to set up a new iPhone or transfer a small number of contacts to an existing iPhone, there are a few different ways to transfer contacts from an Android smartphone to an iPhone.

To make it easier for you to move your phone data from an Android device to a new iPhone, Apple designed the Move to iOS app. All of your data, including contacts, calendars, pictures, and email accounts, will be copied during the process.
