Nowdays, the main mobile phones in the market are working on two different operating systems, iOS and Android. Each of them have their unique specialities, characteristics and limitation, iPhone iOS is a tightly closed system while the Android is a completely open platform that works to user’s benefits. Closed system has no enough interaction with the external data, it means that Apple iOS platform makes it particularly difficult to transfer contacts and other data to the phone based on Android operation system, and also can’t accept the external data from Android devices. Apple’s Closed Source iOS platform also doesn’t allow users to change anything that deals with the operating system itself.

 

What effect it will have for you? The greatest impact is that you can’t transfer large number of contacts or other information from iPhone to Android when you switch to new device. When you’re switching iPhone to a new Android phone, the most annoying and disturbing thing is that how to transfer hundreds of contacts numbers and information from one to another, so if you actually do that, your problems are much bigger than a simple change of brand phone, you’re changing the entire operating system and files system, this changing will result in file and format incompatibility. There are many unsafe methods claim that they can copy contacts information to another phone, including iTunes, Gmail, Apps. However, these unsafe solutions sometimes may result in format incompatibility, contacts loss and phone system crashed.

 

Despite the fact that these two mobile operating systems are two different operation system and file system, but there is still a way to move contacts information from iPhone device to Android phone without losing contacts.

There are plenty of apps and solutions that target the contacts transfer, however, for the  quality and safety reasons, we recommend against using other unsafe apps to do that, especially for a cross-platform transfer. If you’re willing to transfer contact details manually, you need to be prepared to open and transfer hundred of contacts details one by one, It will take a very long time and you need to have a rock like patience, in the meantime, it's conceivable that you may get it wrong or deleted.
