    Sync iPhone Contacts via iTunes:

    NOTE: Using iTunes on a computer with an active Internet connection, you can sync your iPhone contacts with your Google account. Then you can sync the account data, including contacts, with the Samsung phone.

    1. Launch iTunes on the computer
    2. Connect the iPhone to your computer via USB
    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. After the sync is done, switch to the Android device and register the same Google account used in iTunes
    8. Allow the account to sync contacts with the phone

    Share iPhone Contacts from iCloud Backup:

    NOTE: In case your iPhone contacts have been previously backed up on your iCloud account, you can access the account on a computer connected to the Internet and export the contacts in a vCard file for Android use.

    1. Launch the Internet browser on the computer
    2. Visit https://www.icloud.com/
    3. Sign in with your iCloud account and go to “Contacts
    4. Select the contacts you want to share and click “Settings” > “Export vCard
    5. Once the vCard has been downloaded on the computer, perform one of the following steps:
      • Open the Internet browser on the computer and import the vCard to “Google Contacts” or:
      • Connect the Samsung device to your computer via USB, transfer the vCard to the phone storage and import it to your phonebook via “Contacts
    Using “My Contacts Backup”:

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

    1. Visit the App Store and install “My Contacts Backup” on the iPhone
    2. Open the app and tap “Backup” to create a vCard file containing your iPhone contacts
    3. After the backup is done, tap “Email
    4. Write a new email and make sure the vCard is attached
    5. Send the email to your own address
    6. On the Samsung phone, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    7. Import the vCard via “Contacts

    Using “Send Anywhere”:

    NOTE: Another third party application you can use for contact transfer is Send Anywhere, available on both platforms. 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. Go to the Play Store and install the app on the Samsung device
    3. Open the app on both devices
    4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts
    5. Select the desired contacts to share and tap “Send
    6. Lastly, select the desired transfer method on one of the phones and follow the on-screen steps to complete the process
