Transfer Contacts from iPhone to Galaxy S23/S22/S21/S20/S10/S9/S8/S7

At the time of writing this article, Samsung has recently released the latest model: Samsung Galaxy S21. It already promises to be a sales success thanks to the interesting innovations introduced on this device, such as improvements in hardware performance, battery and camera. If you have an old iPhone and have now decided to buy the new Galaxy, in this article we point out a simple, fast and safe way to synchronize and transfer contacts directly from iPhone to Galaxy S9/S10/S20/S21/S22/S23.

In reality, it is the same solution that we have already described in the article on how to transfer SMS from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy. For those who want to try to do such contact transfer manually, they should use Gmail or Outlook or iCloud. Once your contacts are in a Gmail account, you need to add the same account to your device and sync the contacts.

This manual method is feasible but not simple. However, there are data transfer software tools that can help you transfer contacts from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy in just one click! We are talking for example about MobileTrans or of Dr.Fone. They are sophisticated programs that allow the transfer of contacts, music, videos, SMS or WhatsApp messages, from iPhone to the new Samsung Galaxy within a few simple clicks. Below we will take a look at how they work and also highlight two manual methods for doing the same operation.

#1. MobileTrans
