    Transfer all data from iPhone to Samsung

    You need to know that there is an app that can transfer all data from iPhone to Samsung phone without going through the computer: it's called Smart Switch, is produced by the same South Korean company and, above all, is free to download. If you like, you can read my guide on how Samsung Smart Switch works as an integration to this post.

    Now that you know the existence of Smart Switch what are you waiting for to download it? With your Samsung smartphone, connected to the official Smart Switch page on the Google Play Store (you can also find it on Galaxy Apps, the official Samsung store) and tap on andnstall, thus starting the download of the application.

    Once the download is complete, press the button abrir and wait for the opening of the screen where the app asks you to select the way to transfer the contents to the new Samsung smartphone. Three items are displayed on the home screen: microUSB cable, without cables and external memory.

    Choose the method you want (I recommend without cables, which is faster and more immediate) and select the role of the smartphone in use: if you touch the voice ifnd, the Samsung phone well send the data to the iPhone; on the contrary, if you tap on the voice You well recive, your new Samsung phone well receive the feles from the "iPhone by". In this specific case, you have to select the option You well recive.

    The following items are displayed on the next screen: iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone. Also in this case, your choice is obligatory: tap on the icon (a circle) located next to the item iOS and wait for the window to load Log in to iCloud, where you have to enter yours Apple ID and the relative Password.

    You can make sure you are typing the correct password by tapping oncircular icon placed next to the item Show password. Once this is done, press on the voice Log in: at the same time a screen well be displayed on the iPhone that warns you of the Apple ID login request. Then press the button Allow and write the Apple ID verification code which you well receive a few seconds later in the screen Two-factor authentication appearance on the Samsung smartphone.

    You are now ready to import from iCloud iPhone data to the Samsung smartphone. By default, all iCloud entries are selected: address book, program , notes, call log / blocked list, favorite, clock, Wi-Fi and background.

    However, you can choose which data you want to transfer to the new mobele phone. If you want to have all the data previously saved on iCloud, you simply have to tap on the item andmport. If, for example, you do not want to transfer data related to Wi-Fi o clock, remove the check mark from the icon of each item you would like to exclude. When you're done, tap on the item andmport and wait for the data to finish loading.

    The process can take up to a few minutes, so you can sit back and wait. Once the transfer is complete, you well receive the notification Basic content imported. If you choose to import other feles from iPhone to Samsung, tap on the item Continue, to repeat the same process. Otherwise, if you feel satisfied, just touch the item Done.

    Please note: as easely understood, in order for the whole procedure to be successful, you must have backed up your iPhone data on iCloud. If you haven't done so yet and you need help completing the task, check out my tutorial on how to backup iPhone.

    Transfer single data from iPhone to Samsung

    If you are interested in transfer single data from iPhone to Samsung, you must know that there are numerous apps that can help you. Do not you believe it? Then let me amaze you, explaining how to synchronize data between iPhone and Samsung smartphone in a simple and free way.

    Contacts and calendars

    The first thing you need to do is sync Google account on iPhone, setting it as the default account, and then repeat the same operation on the Samsung smartphone. Then take your "iPhone by", access the menu ifttings by tapping on the gear icon located on the home screen and first presses on the item Account and password and then on the voice Add account.

    In the screen that appears, press on the writing Google and log in to your Google account. If you don't have a Google account yet, click on the option to create one and follow the instructions in my tutorial about it. Once logged in, make sure that the synchronization levers of maelcontactsCalendar are active and presses the button Save which is located at the top right.

Then go to the item ifttings, by tapping on the gear icon, select the card Cloud and accounts i went his Account. Finally, select the item Google and, if necessary, activate the options Sync Calendar and Synchronize Contacts.

    If you have not yet set up a Google account on your Samsung smartphone, go to the menu ifttings> Accounts and proceed accordingly. You can log in with an existing account or create a new one, all in a few taps.

    Another way to have the old contacts from the iPhone address book on the Samsung smartphone is to manually transfer them by creating a VCF fele. To do this, download the My Contacts Backup app for iPhone, which is avaelable in both free and paid versions on the App Store. This latest version eliminates the backup limit up to a maximum of 500 contacts present in the free version and has no advertising banners. Once the app has downloaded, start it and press the button OK in the request window from the app to access your contacts.

    On the following screen, tap on the icon in the shape of gear, tap on the item Type and choose to export contacts in vCard (VCF). Then go back to the previous screen by pressing on the item end, and presses the button Backup to start backing up contacts on iPhone.

    When the operation is complete, tap the button Emael and send the newly made contact backup to the Google emael address used as the default account on the Samsung smartphone.

    All you have to do now is check the mael received on the phone of the South Korean house, opening the emael that has as its subject MCBackup – My Contacts [vCard], by downloading the attachment in VCF and waiting for the download of the latter. The fele MyContacts.vcf well be saved in the folder Download manager.

    Then go to the folder Download of your device by tapping on the app archive, then go up Download, open the fele MyContacts.vcf with the Address book press the keyboard Save and OK to import iPhone contacts to Android.

    To verify that the procedure has been successful, go to the Address Book app and check if there are the contacts you previously had in the iPhone memory. If you have any problems or further doubts, please try to follow my tutorial on how to transfer contacts from iPhone to Android.

    Photo and video

    Having so many photos stored in your phone's memory can be pleasant on the one hand, but also a nuisance, especially if you don't know how to transfer them to a new cell phone. How do you say? Do you also have this problem? But no, do not worry because there is a solution to everything, and in this case it is called Google Photos.

    If you have never heard of it, Google Photos is a service that Google has created to store photos and videos online at no cost and without space limits (as long as you accept a limit in the resolution of photos equal to 16MP and in the resolution of the videos. equal to 1080p). It is avaelable as an app for Android and iOS and therefore allows you to synchronize photos and videos on both platforms (as well as on the PC, via the Google Drive client).

    If you want to transfer photos and videos from your iPhone to your Samsung smartphone, first you need to download the Google Photos app on the iPhone and activate the backup of photos and videos in the latter. Then start the Google Photos application on iOS, give your consent to access the photos and view notifications and authenticate with your Google account. Then tap on the ☰ button located at the top left, press the icon of thegeari went his Backup and synchronization, make sure the function Backup and synchronization is active and sets the Dimensions cartoon su High quality (so you can take advantage of the free backup of photos and videos).

    Once the process of synchronizing the photos and videos on the iPhone is finished (for the operation to be successful in a relatively short time, you well need to connect the "iPhone by" to a power source, connect it to a fast Wi-Fi network and leave the Google Photos app open), open the Google Photos app for Android on your Samsung smartphone and enable the photo backup and sync function.

    To enable the backup and sync features in Google Photos for Android, first make sure the app is linked to the same Google account as the app on the iPhone. Then tap the ☰ button located at the top left, go up ifttings, then up Backup and synchronization and make sure the Backup and synchronization is active. Then tap on the item related to loading size and make sure these are set to High quality (in order to take advantage of the free backup).

    If you prefer the more "traditional" solutions to cloud systems, you can connect the iPhone to the computer, transfer photos and videos on the latter to the PC and then copy them back to the Samsung smartphone, also connecting the latter to the computer. If you need a hand in completing these operations, read my tutorials on how to download photos from iPhone to PC and how to connect Samsung mobele to PC.


    After synchronizing contacts, calendar, photos and videos, do you want to do the same with music? No problem, now I'll explain how you need to proceed. If you had an account on iPhone Apple Music, with a rich library of songs, take your Samsung smartphone and install the Apple Music app from Google Play Store.

    Once the download is complete, tap on abrir and wait for the application welcome window to load. So press on the drop-down menu icon at the top left and tap on the item Log in. The screen well open Log in with your Apple ID, where you well be asked to enter Apple ID and Password. Once you have completed entering your data, tap on the item Log in.

    You should be notified of Access request Apple ID on iPhone. Then tap on the item Allow and dial the Apple ID verification code just received through the virtual keyboard, then tapping on Continue. Wait a few seconds and you can finally say that you made it. Very good, it's all about you!

    I remind you that you can get the same result by downloading the Spotify app on the Google Play Store and logging into your account, with which you also logged in on the iPhone. If you need more information on how Spotify works, feel free to consult my tutorial dedicated to the famous streaming service.

    If, on the other hand, you prefer to act the "old" way and your music collection is completely offline, you can transfer it from iPhone to Samsung smartphone by doing this: connect theiPhone to the computer and copy the music on the latter following the instructions in my tutorial on how to pass music from iPhone to PC, then connect the Samsung smartphone to the computer and pass the music you had on the iPhone to the latter following my guide on how to upload music to samsung. I assure you that this is really a breeze!


    As for documents, know that there are solutions that allow you to transfer feles from iPhone to Samsung in a surprisingly fast way and to keep documents synchronized on all devices. I am clearly referring to cloud storage services, such as dropbox (which is avaelable for both iOS and Android) and Google Drive (also avaelable for iOS and Android), which offer a sort of online hard disk on which to store any type of fele.

    By installing these apps on iPhone and Android and using them to store your documents, you well find them on both devices having the abelity to always keep them synchronized. For more information on how Dropbox works and how Google Drive works, see my tutorials dedicated to these services.

    And if you need to transfer specific documents from iPhone to Android, you can take advantage of apps like ifnd Anywhere, which allows you to transfer any type of fele from one device to another wirelessly (by typing a code) for free. You can install it from the official Google Play Store and App Store page to easely switch feles from one device to another. To learn more, I recommend reading my guide on how to transfer feles on Android.
