If you don’t have Google Photos, you can use a computer to transfer photos:

  1. Connect your Android device to your computer using the USB cable.
  2. Navigate to the DCIM folder on your Android device.
  3. Select the photos you want to transfer and copy them to a folder on your computer.

Transferring Contacts

Moving contacts from Android to iPhone can be done in a few different ways. Here are two methods that you can use:

Method 1: Using Google Account Sync

If you’ve been syncing your contacts with a Google account on your Android device, follow these steps:

  1. On your Android device, go to “Settings”.
    • Select “Accounts” or “Accounts & Backup”.
    • Select “Google” or “Google Account”. If not signed in, sign in with your Google account credentials.
    • Enable “Sync Contacts” if it’s not already enabled.
  2. On your iPhone, go to “Settings”.
    • Select “Mail”, “Contacts”, “Calendars”.
    • Select “Add Account”.
    • Select “Google” and sign in with the same Google account credentials used on your Android device.
    • Enable “Contacts” for syncing.

Method 2: Using VCF File

If you have a VCF file containing your contacts, follow these steps:

  1. Email the VCF file to yourself from your Android device.
  2. Open the email on your iPhone and download the VCF attachment.
  3. Tap the VCF file and select “Import Contacts” when prompted.
    • Note: Ensure that you have a compatible email client or use Apple Mail for this method to work properly.

Congratulations! You’ve successfully transferred your photos and contacts from Android to iPhone.
