    Sync iPhone Contacts With Google Using iTunes:

    NOTE: If you have iTunes installed on your computer with Internet access, you can use the app to sync the contacts on your iPhone with your Google account. You can then sync the account data, including contacts, with the HTC Desire 530.

    1. Launch iTunes on the computer
    2. Connect the iPhone to your computer via USB
    3. Once connected, click the iPhone in iTunes and access the “Info” tab
    4. Turn on “Sync Contacts With” and select “Google Contacts” from the drop-down menu
    5. Sign in with your Google account and click “Configure
    6. Select an existing account and click “Apply” to begin the sync
    7. Once the sync is complete, switch to the HTC Desire 530, sign in with the same Google account, and allow it to sync contacts with your Android 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 with an Internet connection, and export the contacts in vCard format for Android use.

    1. Launch the Internet browser on the computer
    2. Visit iCloud
    3. Sign in with your iCloud account
    4. Go to “Contacts” and select the contacts you want to share
    5. Click “Settings” > “Export vCard
    6. After the vCard has been downloaded on the computer, you can follow one of the steps below:
      • Import the vCard to “Google Contacts”, or:
      • Connect the HTC Desire 530 to your computer via USB, transfer the vCard to the phone storage, and use “People” to import its contents
    Using “My Contacts Backup”:

    NOTE: While the two methods above require access to a computer connected to the Internet, you can also share your iPhone contacts through third party applications. My Contacts Backup is an iOS app that can back up and transfer 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 backup vCard file containing your iPhone contacts
    3. Once the backup file 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 HTC Desire 530, open the email and download the vCard attachment
    7. Import the vCard to your phonebook via “People

    Using “Send Anywhere”:

    NOTE: Send Anywhere is another third party app you can use (for Android and iOS). The application uses a peer to peer connection to transfer iPhone contacts without requiring a computer.

    1. Install Send Anywhere on the iPhone via the App Store
    2. Install the same app on the HTC device via the Google Play Store
    3. Launch the app on both smartphones
    4. Tap “Send” > “Contacts” on the iPhone
    5. Select the contacts you want to share and tap “Send
    6. Choose the desired transfer method. For instance, you can tap “Receive” on the HTC Desire 530 and enter the code generated on the iPhone, or tap “Generate QR Code” on the iPhone and scan the code with the HTC device’s camera to begin the transfer

    Thanks for sharing, i think it's more convenient to use a mobile transfer app to transfer contacts between htc and iphone. You just need to connect your two mobile phones to computer at the same time and start the app to transfer data.

    To Transfer iPhone Contacts to an HTC Desire 530, the easiest way I think is using mobile phone transfer tool. After connecting both of them to computer via usb cables, just open the tool. Then you can directly transfer contacts between them.
