    Sync iPhone Contacts Using iTunes:

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

    1. Open iTunes on the computer
    2. Connect the iPhone to the PC via USB
    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 begin the sync
    7. Once done, switch to the Android phone and log in with the same account used in iTunes
    8. Set the account to sync contacts with the Android device

    Share iPhone Contacts from iCloud Backup:

    NOTE: If your iPhone contacts were previously backed on to your iCloud account, you can log in with the account on a computer with Internet access and export the contacts in a vCard file.

    1. Open the Internet browser on the PC
    2. Head down to https://www.icloud.com/
    3. Log in with your iCloud account and access “Contacts
    4. Select the contacts you want to share and click “Settings” > “Export vCard
    5. After the vCard has been downloaded, perform one of the steps below:
    • Launch the Internet browser on the computer and use “Google Contacts” to import the vCard to your phonebook
    • Connect the Android phone to the computer via USB, transfer the vCard to your phone and use “Contacts” to import it to your phonebook

    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 third-party app that can back up and share iPhone contacts via email.

    1. Go to the App Store and install My Contacts Backup on the iPhone
    2. Launch the app and tap “Backup” to create a vCard of your iPhone contacts
    3. Once done, send the vCard to your own address via email
    4. Switch to the Android phone, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    5. Use “Contacts” to import the vCard to your phonebook

    Using Send Anywhere:

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

    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 smartphones
    4. On the iPhone, tap “Send” > “Contacts
    5. Select the contacts you want to share and tap “Send” again
    6. Finally, select a transfer method on one of the devices and follow the on-screen steps to complete the process
