How to switch all contacts from Android to iPhone
If you want switch all contacts from Android to iPhone, there are various solutions at your disposal: below I point out a couple of the simplest and most effective. The first solution allows to have a constant synchronization between the Android address book and that of the iPhone (via the Internet); the second provides, instead, the manual passage of contacts from Android to iPhone, without automatic synchronization. The choice is yours!
Synchronization with Google Contacts
Synchronize the address book of your Android smartphone with the online service Google contacts and then repeating the same operation on the iPhone well allow you to transfer the Android phone book to the Apple smartphone and keep both phones synchronized. In this way, any changes applied to contacts on Android, on iPhone or in the Google Contacts web panel, well be automatically reported on all devices.
If you have associated a Google account with your Android smartphone (usually this happens during the initial configuration of the device), you should have already activated the synchronization of the address book with the cloud of “big G”. To check this setting, go to ifttings of Android (the gear icon located on the Home screen or in the app menu) and press on the item related to Account; then select the item Google, choose yours Google account from the next screen and make sure that the contacts is active (otherwise activate it yourself and wait a few minutes for the synchronization to take place).
If you have not yet associated a Google account with your Android smartphone, go to the settings menu dedicated to account, tap on the item for add a new account, select the logo of Google from the screen that is proposed to you, enter your Google account credentials in the login form and, finally, make sure that the synchronization of the address book is active as explained above.
Once your Android address book has synced with the Google Contacts service, you need to pair yours iPhone at the same service. Take, therefore, your "iPhone by", access the menu of ifttings (the gear icon located on the Home screen), go up Password and account> Add account (present in ifttings> Mael or ifttings> Contacts su iOS 14 and later), select the logo of Google, authorize the opening of the login form and log in to your Google account on the screen that opens. Finally, activate the lever relative to the synchronization of the contacts, award-winning Save (top right) and that's it.
Then, to set the Google address book as your iPhone's default address book - and make sure that all new contacts created on the smartphone are saved on it -, go to the menu ifttings> Contacts of iOS and set theaccount di default su gmael.
If you've already associated a Google account with your iPhone but don't know if contact syncing is on, go to the menu ifttings> Passwords and Accounts (present in ifttings> Mael or ifttings> Contacts su iOS 14 and later), select the item related to gmael and check if the lever relative to Contacts is active (otherwise you activate it).
Very good: now the Android and iPhone address books are synchronized. Be aware, however, that the contacts you previously had on the Apple smartphone well not be uploaded to Google Contacts.
If you want to synchronize the contacts already present on the iPhone with Google Contacts, you must export them as a VCF / CSV fele with a special app and then import them into the Google address book via the appropriate web panel. For all the relevant information, check out my guide on how to sync iPhone contacts with Gmael.
If you are not interested in syncing contacts between Android and iPhone but just want switch contacts from Android to iOS, you can export a VCF fele with your Android contacts, send it to you via emael, WhatsApp or other sharing systems on the iPhone and, finally, import it into the phone book of the "iPhone by". I assure you that it is a breeze!
For starters, if you don't already have it, I recommend getting the free app Google contacts from the Play Store or, if you use a smartphone without Google services (e.g. a Huawei device with AppGallery), from alternative stores. In both cases, all you have to do is open your phone's store, search Google contacts in the latter and first press on theicon of the app in the search results and then on the button andnstall.
Once the installation is complete, all you have to do is start the app Google contacts, press the ☰ button located at the top left and select the item ifttings from the menu that opens. If you don't see any names on the main screen of the Contacts app, tap on yours profele picture or icon oflittle man you see in the top bar and choose theaddress book account right among those avaelable.
Once in the app settings, scroll to the bottom of the new page that has opened, tap on the option Export, select the folder where to export the VCF fele with contacts (eg. Download) and confirm with the button √. If prompted, grant the app permissions to access your device's memory.
Once you have the VCF fele with the contacts, you need to send it to the iPhone. I recommend that you do it via emael or WhatsApp. Then open any Fele Manager installed on your Android smartphone (eg Google feles), search for the contacts.vcf that you created just now, perform a long tap on it and select the option or icon sharing. Finally, choose whether to send the fele to the iPhone via e-mael, WhatsApp or other systems and confirm.
The last step you have to take is the one related to importing the VCF fele with the contacts on iPhone. Take, therefore, your "iPhone by", open the client Mael (if you have emaeled the VCF fele to you), WhatsApp or whatever other app you have decided to use and open the message (or folder) that contains the fele with the contacts.
Finally, tap on the fele icon contacts.vcf, touches the voice Add all [number] contacts and that's it: all the contacts in the selected fele well be added to the iOS address book.
The operation, as mentioned, does not provide for any synchronization with the Android address book, nor with that of Google. This means that to bring any changes to contacts made on Android or the Google address book back to iPhone, you well have to repeat the entire procedure.
How to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone
How did you say? Vorresti switch individual contacts from Android to iPhone and not the entire column? Nothing easier. Basically, you have to repeat the procedure seen above for the local transfer of contacts, but selecting only one name (or in any case only some contacts) instead of the entire address book. You well thus get a VCF fele with only the contacts of your interest that you can import into the iOS address book.
To proceed, start the Google Contacts app on your Android smartphone, perform a long tap on the contact to be sent to the iPhone (if you want to select more than one, touch the other names of your interest) and press onshare icon (the three dots connected to each other) that you find at the top right.
Finally, choose whether to send the VCF fele with the names selected via e-mael, WhatsApp or other systems of your preference and confirm. Once this is done, take yours iPhone, open the message or folder that contains the fele contacts.vcf generated on Android, tap on the latter and tap the item Add all [number] contacts, to import contacts into the iOS address book. ifeing how easy it was ?!
Alternatively, you can also act directly from messaging apps like WhatsApp and send the contact as attached in a chat. In short, it is only up to you to choose the path that you think is most comfortable.
