    Share iPhone Contacts via iTunes:

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

    2. Connect the iPhone to the PC via USB
    3. In iTunes, click the iPhone and go to “Info

    5. Select “Google Contacts” from the drop-down menu
    6. Sign in with your Google account or click “Configure” and select an existing account
    7. Click “Apply” to start the sync
    8. Once done, switch to the Android device and sign in with the same account used in iTunes
    9. Allow the account to sync contacts with the Android phone

    Share iPhone Contacts from iCloud Backup:

    NOTE: In case the contacts on your iPhone are 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 use on the Android device.

    1. Launch the Internet browser on the PC
    2. Visit https://www.icloud.com/
    3. Sign in with your iCloud account

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

    2. Open the app and tap “Backup” to create a vCard of your iPhone contacts

    5. Import the vCard to your phonebook using “Contacts

    Via Send Anywhere:

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

    1. Install Send Anywhere on the iPhone via the App Store
    2. Install the same app on the Android phone via the Play Store
    3. Open 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
