    Transfer iPhone Contacts via iTunes:

    NOTE: Using iTunes on a computer with Internet access you can sync your iPhone contacts with your Google account, and then you can sync the account data, including contacts, with the Android device.

    1. Connect the iPhone to the computer via USB
    2. Open iTunes on a computer
    3. Click the iPhone in iTunes and go to “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 done, switch to the Android phone and sign in with the same Google account
    8. Allow the account to sync contacts with the Pixel device

    Share iPhone Contacts via iCloud:

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

    1. Open the Internet browser on the computer
    2. Visit https://www.icloud.com/
    3. Log in with your iCloud account
    4. Go to “Contacts
    5. Select the desired contacts and click “Settings” > “Export vCard
    6. Once the vCard is exported:
      • Launch the Internet browser on the computer and import the vCard to Google Contacts, or:
      • Connect the Pixel 2 XL to the computer via USB, transfer the vCard to the phone storage and use “Contacts” to import its contents to your phonebook
    Using My Contacts Backup:

    2. Launch the app and tap “Backup”. This will create a vCard of your iPhone contacts
    3. After the process is done, tap “Email
    4. Write a new email ensuring the vCard is attached
    5. Send the email and attachment to your own address
    6. On the Android phone, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    7. Import the vCard to the phonebook using “Contacts

    Using Send Anywhere:

    NOTE: Send Anywhere is another third-party app for Android and iOS you can use to share your iPhone contacts without computer access.

    1. Go to the App Store and install Send Anywhere on the iPhone
    2. Go to the Play Store and install the app on the Android phone
    3. Open the app on both smartphones
    4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts
    5. Select the contacts you want to share
    6. Tap “Send” and select a transfer method on one of the phones
