How to transfer iPhone contacts to Android smartphone
If you are making a shift from an iPhone to an Android smartphone, then one of the difficulties you’ll face is shifting all your contacts to the latter. Transferring contacts from your iPhone to an Android smartphone involves two major things: exporting them to cloud and then importing them from there. So, you will first need to export your contacts to iCloud and then import them with the help of Google Contacts. And you can do it through with the help of Windows PC or a Mac device. Here are the detailed steps for transferring your contacts:

-Open Safari or Firefox browser on your computer. The method doesn’t work with Google Chrome.
-Go to iCloud.com.
-Sign in with your Apple ID.
-Click on ‘Contacts’.
-Then click on ‘All Contacts’ ( present at the top left corner).
-If you’ve got a Windows PC, press the ctrl and the A keys on your keyboard simultaneously. In case you have a Mac, do the same step with Command and A keys.
-Click ‘Settings’ (present in the bottom left).
-Click ‘Export vCard’. This will save your contacts as a .vcf file in your downloads. If a new window opens, select all of your contacts again, right click, and export.
-Press ctrl+A or command+A and click the Settings button.
-Click Export vCard.

Now, you need to import your vCard. Here’s how to do it.

-Open any web browser on your computer.

-Sign in to your Google account

-Click the Google apps button.

-Click ‘Contacts’.

-Click ‘Import Contacts’.

-Click ‘Choose File’.

-Click on your vCard and open it from your saved folder

-Click ‘Import’. It will take a few seconds for all of the contacts to appear.

-Click ‘Find’. If a red message pops, click ‘Merge’ to merge the duplicates.
