How to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone

Android users can transfer their contacts over to an iPhone using a few different methods. They can do so using the Move to iOS app developed by Apple specifically to help you transfer your data. This app can be used when you are setting up your iPhone. Users can also make use of a common Google account, manually transfer contacts through a VCF file, or use the SIM card to transfer them to their iPhone.

Transitioning from an Android device to an iPhone can feel like stepping into a new technological realm, marked by sleek design, seamless integration, and a refined user experience. The switch often entails adjusting to iOS's intuitive interface, which boasts fluid navigation and a curated selection of apps designed to optimize performance.

Transfer contacts via SIM

If your new iPhone uses a physical SIM card to process mobile data, you can import any saved contacts directly from the phone's settings.

1. Make sure all of the contacts on your Android device are backed up and exported to the SIM card. To do this, open up the Contacts app > tap on the menu (three stripes) icon > Manage contacts > Import or export contacts > and then Export.

2. Once that's completed, move your SIM card into the new iPhone -- or follow this guide if it takes eSIM.

3. From your iPhone settings, scroll down to Contacts > Import SIM Contacts. The transfer process should take a few minutes.
