Let's explore how to use these methods to transfer files from iPhone to Android wirelessly, especially for users who are going to switch from iPhone to Samsung.

Way 1. Transfer Data from iPhone to Samsung Wirelessly with Smart Switch & iCloud

First, to transfer data from iPhone to Samsung wirelessly, I'm going to introduce an official data transfer mobile app - Samsung Smart Switch, created by Samsung Company. 

What is the Samsung Smart Switch? It enables users to transfer everything from iPhone to Samsung seamlessly. This is an app tailored for data transfer to Samsung. That is to say, you can transfer data from Android/iPhone to Samsung with this software. It is also able to transfer data from Samsung to Samsung.

Samsung Smart Switch supports two transfer methods - wireless and cable mode. You can use a USB cable and a USB connector to connect two phone devices to transfer files to Samsung with Smart Switch. If you don't have a USB OTG adapter, you can consider wireless transfer using Smart Switch and iCloud. Follow the steps below to transfer data from iPhone to Samsung with Smart Switch and iCloud without cable:

Step 1. To back up your iPhone, go to Settings > iCloud > Backup > Back Up Now.

Create iCloud Backup on iPhone

Step 2. On your new Samsung, launch Smart Switch and choose the Wireless mode.

Step 3. Then tap Receive. Choose "iPhone/iPad" as the source device.

Select iOS in Samsung Smart Switch

Step 4. Sign into iCloud. Then you can choose the files that you want to transfer from iCloud to Samsung. Tap Start to start the process.

Way 2. Transfer Data from iPhone to Samsung with Google Cloud Services

Google Cloud

In addition to wireless data transfer apps, you can also take advantage of Google Cloud services (including Google Photos, Google Drive, and Gmail) to transfer files from iPhone to Android wirelessly. With this method, you can transfer some essential and important data from iPhone to Samsung without iCloud selectively.

Using Google Cloud services:

  • Google Photos - enables users to transfer photos from iPhone to Samsung.
  • Google Drive - is able to back up and transfer separate files, such as PDFs, documents, music, videos, etc.
  • Gmail - allows users to sync contacts, calendars, and other content.

With these three cloud-based services, you can transfer from iPhone to Samsung without cable easily.

Way 3. Can You AirDrop Data from iPhone to Samsung


In terms of wireless data transfer, you must be thinking of AirDrop, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. AirDrop is an amazing wireless ad hoc service developed by Apple Inc. Can you use AirDrop to transfer data from iPhone to another phone? It depends.

AirDrop enables users to transfer data from one Apple device to another. That means you can transfer data from iPhone to iPhone using AirDrop. You are not allowed to AirDrop data to a device that is not owned by Apple. Therefore, it's not viable to AirDrop from iPhone to Samsung.
