#iPhone #Android – How to Transfer Contacts from iPhone to Android (Guide) : So you’ve decided to make the switch from an iPhone to an Android device, and for the most part, it all looks good. However, one of the biggest issues with switching operating systems on smartphones, is the loss of valuable data when you move from one device to another. Personally, my contacts are among the most important data I have on my iPhone, and I would hate to lose them. After all, we predominantly use our smartphones as just that- a phone; and without the contacts, it’s basically useless. So, if you’re switching from an iPhone to an Android device, and would like to ensure that your contacts get transferred to your Android device without any glitch, then you’re at the right place.
In this guide, I will tell you how you can use to transfer your contacts from your iPhone to your new Android device:
Transfer Contacts from iPhone to Android Using iCloud
If you’re using an iPhone, you obviously have an Apple ID, as well. This method uses the fact that the iPhone automatically syncs your contacts with your iCloud account, to ensure that when you change iPhones, your contacts are all there, waiting for you. The problem, then, is that you’re not switching to a new iPhone; you’re switching to an Android device. Well, there is a way you can transfer all your contacts from iCloud to your Android device.
Note: You will need to have a Google account for this method. If you don’t have one, yet, go and get one, it’s free. Plus, you will need it on your Android device, anyway.
I’ll walk you through the process, step by step, and you can follow along to get your iPhone contacts on your Android device, as well:
1. Go to iCloud on your web browser, and sign in with your Apple ID. Once you’re logged in, click on Contacts.
