Gather Your Android Contacts

Before transferring your contacts, make sure that all your contacts are saved on your Android device. You can do this by opening the Contacts app on your Android device and checking if all the necessary contacts are present.

Sync Your Android Contacts with Google Account

To make the transfer process seamless, it’s recommended to sync your contacts with your Google account. This will allow you to easily import them to your iPhone later. Here’s how you can do it:

  1. Open Settings on your Android device.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “Accounts” or “Accounts & Sync”.
  3. Select your Google account (or add it if not already added).
  4. Enable the “Contacts” option to sync them with your Google account.
  5. Tap on “Sync Now” or wait for automatic synchronization.

Add Your Google Account to iPhone

To retrieve the synced contacts from your Google account on your iPhone, follow these steps:

  1. Open Settings on your iPhone.
  2. Scroll down and tap on “Mail” or “Mail, Contacts, Calendars”.
  3. Select “Add Account”.
  4. Choose “Google” from the list of available account types.
  5. Enter your Google account credentials and sign in.
  6. Toggle the “Contacts” option to enable syncing.
  7. Tap on “Save” to add your Google account to your iPhone.

Synchronize Your iPhone Contacts

Now that your Google account is added to your iPhone, you can synchronize the contacts. Here’s how:

  1. Navigate to the “Settings” app on your iPhone.
  2. Select your Google account from the list of added accounts.
  3. Toggle the “Contacts” option to enable synchronization.
  4. Note:
    If contacts don’t start syncing automatically, you can manually trigger it by tapping on “Show All Contacts“.
