Fortunately, moving files from Android to iPhone is not that hard. There are many ways to transfer files across operating systems, which makes migration much easier.

In this article, you will learn how to transfer contacts and photos from Android to iPhone in a few efficient ways. Let's get into it now!
To transfer contacts and photos from Android to iPhone, we suggest using a piece of useful third-party software. This third-party software is introduced to transfer contacts, videos, music, apps, photos, documents, and other data from Android to iPhone or vice versa. Before transferring data from Android to iPhone, you can also back up Android to PC to avoid data loss.
Move to iOS is a mobile app developed by Apple, dedicated to moving your contacts, photos, music, videos, and other content from Android to iPhone wirelessly. Compared to the previous desktop software, this mobile app is more cumbersome and complicated. But in the following, we will show how to use it to migrate your contacts and photos step by step.
To transfer contacts and photos from Android to iPhone using Move to iOS:
Step 1. On your iPhone and Android phone, download Move to iOS and start the basic setup.
Step 2. Go to the Apps & Data screen in Move to iOS on your iPhone.
Step 3. Then select Move Data from Android > Move from Android > Continue.
Step 4. A ten-digit or six-digit code will display on the screen of your iPhone.
Step 5. On your Android, enter this code on the screen when prompted.
Step 6. Then you will be asked to add a temporary Wi-Fi network created by your iPhone. Only in this way, can you use Move to iOS to transfer data from Android to iOS.
Step 7. When you're done, the Transfer Data screen will appear.
Step 8. Tap Contacts/Photos > Continue to start transferring your contacts and photos now.
Move to iOS is quite complicated. If you would like to selectively transfer small portions of the contacts and photos, you can back up data by emailing yourself. It's not a common way but may be the easiest way to transfer data between two devices. Note that the data migrated via Email can't be integrated into the Contacts app and the Photos app.
Using Email, your contacts are saved and sent in a VCF (Variant Call Format) format which is also readable by iPhone models. And here's how:
Step 1. On your Android device, open your Photos/Contacts app.
Step 2. Then select the contacts/photos that you want to transfer. Although you can also select all, it is not recommended in view of transfer speed.
Step 3. Then select the Share button to share your data via Email.
Step 4. Then enter your recipient address and tap Send.
Step 5. Once you send the Email successfully, go to Mail > Find the Email > open the VCF file > Follow the on-screen instruction to add contacts to the Contacts app on your iPhone.
Step 6. Also, you can download the photos from the Mail app on your iPhone.
You can also transfer contacts or photos from Android to iPhone separately. It depends on you.
