    Transfer iPhone Contacts via iTunes:

    NOTE: You can use iTunes on a computer connected to the Internet to sync your iPhone contacts with your Google account. Then you can sync the account data, including contacts, with the Android phone.

    1. Connect the iPhone to the computer via USB
    2. Launch iTunes on the computer
    3. In iTunes, click the iPhone and go to “Info
    4. Enable “Sync Contacts With” and select “Google Contacts” from the drop-down menu
    5. Sign in with your Google account or click “Configure” and select an existing account
    6. Click “Apply” to begin the sync
    7. Once the sync is done, switch to the Android device and log in with the same account used in iTunes
    8. Set the account to sync contacts with the Pixel 2

    Share iPhone Contacts via iCloud:

    NOTE: In case the contacts on your iPhone are already 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.

    2. Visit https://www.icloud.com/
    3. Sign in with your iCloud account and access “Contacts
    4. Select the desired contacts and click “Settings” > “Export vCard
    5. After the vCard is exported:
      • Open the Internet browser on the computer and import the vCard to Google Contacts or:
      • Connect the Pixel 2 to the computer via USB, transfer the vCard to the phone storage and import it to your phonebook via “Contacts
    Using My Contacts Backup:

    NOTE: Although the two methods above require a computer with Internet access, alternatively you can share your iPhone contacts using third party apps. My Contacts Backup is an iOS app that can back up and share iPhone contacts via email.

    5. Send the email and attachment to your own address
    6. Switch to the Android device, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    7. Import the vCard to your phonebook via “Contacts

    Using Send Anywhere:

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

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