Sync Android Notes to iPhone With Dropbox

One thing that makes data transfer between two platforms tricky is that some software is compatible with iPhones but not with Android. Dropbox is a popular cloud service that stores files, and you can access these stored files from any device with an internet connection. More importantly, Dropbox is available on both devices, thus making it a medium for note transfer without a computer.

Steps to sync notes to iPhone using Dropbox:

Step 1. Install Dopbox on both devices. Download and install it from Play Store on your Android. On iPhone, you can get it from App Store.

Step 2. Open the notes you want to transfer on your Android and tap the share icon.

Step 3. After tapping on the share icon, you can choose the file types. If you only upload one note to Dropbox, you will have multiple choices, such as saving it as a text, image, or other file type. If you want to upload notes in bulk, you will only see two options: a Note file (if you use Samsung Notes, this option will be a Samsung Notes file) and a PDF file.

Step 4. Add the notes to Dropbox. You can create a new folder to save your notes or add them to the existing folder. Once you decide where to locate your notes, click "Add" at the bottom of the screen.

Step 5. On your iPhone, access Dropbox to locate your notes from the folder and download them to your new iPhone.

Use Google Keep for iPhone and Android Notes

Android phones use different default notes apps, such as Mi Notes and Samsung Notes, which are inaccessible on iPhones. Therefore, one idea is to use the same note-taking app on Android and iPhone; thus, you can view all your files with the same account.

Google Keep is a note-taking tool that can take care of your notes. Google develops it for sharing photos from Android to iPhone and other file types such as notes, audio files, images, texts, etc. It is simple to transfer notes from Android to iPhone with this service, and it only requires a few steps taking you about 3 minutes.

Step 1. Download the Google Keep app and install it on your Android phone. On your iPhone, download and install it from the App Store. Log into the same Google account on both devices.

Step 2. Next, go to "Settings" > "Accounts and Backup" > "Manage Accounts" and tap on your "Google Account" so that it syncs the notes from your Android phone.

Step 3. Click "Sync Account" and turn on "Keep Notes."

Step 4. Unfortunately, Google Keep does not allow you to upload many notes simultaneously. Therefore, open the note you want to transfer and tap the share icon. You have two options: choose Text File if the note only contains characters. Otherwise, select Image File if an image is included in the note.

Step 5. After you decide, you will see pop-up options to where the note is saved. Select "Keep Notes."

Step 6. Click "Save" to save the note to Google Keep. Then, you can view the synced message on your iPhone.

You can use this software to take notes all the time from now on for its convenient access to all your files under the same account.

Email Android Notes to Yourself

Some note apps, such as ColorNote, only support Android, preventing you from using the same app and the same account on your iPhone to access your notes. Under such circumstances, the way to transfer notes to other operating system devices is to use email. You can share your notes through an email account and add the account to the iPhone mail app.

Step 1. Open a note and choose "Send" in the menu.

Step 2. Choose "Email" to send the notes to your email address.

Step 3. Receive the email on your iPhone.


There you have four reliable solutions to transfer notes from Android to iPhone. Each has its merits and suits for different situations.

  • Dropbox enables you to transfer notes and other file types to different devices.
  • You can use Google Keep on Android and iPhone to ensure the future transfer of your notes.
  • If you need a few notes, emailing yourself may be the easiest way.
