I want to move contacts from Android phone to my new iPhone. Do you know how to move Android contacts to iPhone?

  • A.SE mods - The answer here is a bit of software that runs on android, while there's an IOS system involved. Annoyingly, its a newer, more up to date answer than the potential dupes. I'll drop this on your lap, but I almost moved it to ask different instead – Journeyman Geek Sep 23 '15 at 12:20
  • Please mention your phone model and Android version. – Lucky Sep 23 '15 at 12:31

You can use the Android application made by Apple : Move to iOS.

The applications will let you easily transfer your contact and a lot of other data (messages, photos, Google account, bookmark) from your Android phone to your iPhone.


Read this article from google support website on How to Sync contacts with your Apple device,

Google recommends you to use CardDav.

To sync your Google contacts with your Apple device (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac), we recommend using CardDAV, which is an Internet open standard. When you sync your Google contacts using CardDAV, you’ll be able to edit, add, and remove contacts from your device and keep them in sync everywhere you use them.

iOS 7+ steps:

  1. Open the Settings app on your device.
  2. Select Mail, Contacts, Calendars.
  3. Select Add Account.
  4. Select Google.
  5. Fill out your account information in the following fields:
    Name: Enter your name
    User Name: Enter your full Google Account or Google Apps email address.
    Password: Your Google Account or Google Apps password. (If you’ve enabled 2 Step verification, you’ll need to generate and enter an application specific password.)
    Description: Enter a description of the account (e.g. Personal Contacts).
  6. Select Next at the top of your screen.
  7. Make sure that the "Contacts" option is turned ON. The switch should be green.
  8. Select Save at the top of your screen.

After you've completed setup, open the Contacts app on your device, and syncing will automatically begin.


I think you could try an application to transfer your contacts to PC first and then you can use iCloud or the application to put contacts into your iPhone.
