If you had decided to make the switch from Android to iOS, you probably want to make sure all of your contacts come with you to your new iPhone. And you may be wondering if it is possible or not? However, it is possible & the process is simple, and there’s a few different ways to do it.
If you have a Gmail account linked to your Android phone, you can sync and transfer your contacts through Gmail. Or, you can use an app designed to transfer your files from one phone to another.
One of the ways is the android app, i.e. Move to iOS.
You can do by alternative way using your gmail account.

- click “Google” (make sure sync contacts is switched on)
- Now NEXT, open your gmail on your computer (top right of the webpage) – click “Contacts”
- find “contacts” then click “more” then click “Export”

- goto www.icloud.com or log in to your iCloud account, if not create one. Once homepage appears, click “Contacts”
- on the left of the screen choose “Import vCard” from the bottom left of “Contacts”
Your contacts are now synced with iCloud, but you still need to get them onto your new phone. Click on your name and Apple ID in the ‘Settings’ menu after signing in to iCloud on your new iPhone.
