    2. Open iTunes on the computer
    3. In iTunes, click the iPhone and access “Info
    4. Enable “Sync Contacts With” and select “Google Contacts” from the drop-down menu
    5. Log in with your Google account or click “Configure” and select an existing account
    6. Click “Apply” to start the sync
    7. Once the sync is complete, sign in with the same account on the Android device
    8. Set the account to sync contacts with the Android phone

    NOTE: If your iPhone contacts are backed up on your iCloud account, you can log in with the account on a computer connected to the Internet and export the contacts in a vCard file for use on the Android phone.

      • Connect the Android phone to the computer via USB, transfer the vCard to the phone storage and import its contents to your phonebook via “Contacts
    Using My Contacts Backup:

    5. Switch to the Android phone, open the email and download the vCard
    6. Import the vCard to your phonebook using “Contacts”

    Using Send Anywhere:

    NOTE: Another third-party app you can use is Send Anywhere, available on iOS and Android. The app uses a peer-2-peer connection to share contacts and other file types without requiring computer access.

    1. Go to the App Store and install Send Anywhere on the iPhone
    2. Install the same app on the Android device via the Play Store
    3. Launch the app on both devices
    4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts
    5. Select the desired contacts and tap “Send
    6. Lastly select a transfer method on one of the phones and follow the on-screen prompts to complete the process
