Luckily you’ve come to the right place.
The good news is that transferring contacts, music, photos, and apps from an Android phone to iPhone really couldn’t be simpler – it turns out that Google is great at this stuff.
For now, we will guide you on How you can transfer contacts from Android to iPhone.
How to Transfer Contacts from Android to iPhone

- Select Add CardDAV Account.
- Fill out your account information in the following fields:
