It goes without saying that Samsung S20 (Plus, Ultra FE) is definitely a marquee Android phone among most Android enthusiasts. If you are a style-conscious user and want to ditch your old iPhone for a new Android phone, then the elegant Samsung Galaxy S20 is your best bet.

Maybe you can't wait to try Samsung S20 phone, but let's face the fact: you need to transfer the data from old iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S20, right? We know Android and iOS are two different operating systems, so there must be some restrictions and limitations between these two systems when it comes to moving content, including contacts, photos, music, videos, text messages between iPhone and Samsung S20. There are a number of third-party data transferring tools on the web, but quite a few of them don't work very well due to compatibility issues.

To help you gain a quick access to Galaxy S20, Phone Transfer comes to your way.

Let's get down to business and see how it works in transferring data from iPhone to Galaxy S20 (Plus, Ultra, FE).

Step 1: Connect your old iPhone and New Galaxy S20 to computer

Download the program and install it on your machine. Here we take its Mac version for example.

Launch the program and select the green Phone to phone transfer module.

The next screen will ask you to connect both your devices with two USB cables. Once connected, please activate USB debugging mode on your Samsung S20. On iPhone, just tap Trust when a prompt pops up.

Step 2: Select Music from your iPhone to S20

Now, both your devices are on the program window. Click Flip button to set iPhone as the source device and Galaxy S20 handset as the target device.

All the available data from iPhone are displayed on the middle data box. Just select whatever data (contacts, text messages, calendars, music, videos, photos, call logs) you would like to transfer. For the purpose of this tutorial, we would like to move all content to the new Samsung Galaxy S20 from iPhone, so we tick all boxes next to the data types.

It's worth pointing out that Phone Transfer also allows you to delete the existing content in your Samsung S20 (if you have used it). You may tick Clear data before copy option under the device icon.

Tip: If you lost files on your iPhone, be sure to recover them as soon as possible. Learn more about how to recover deleted data files from iPhone.

Step 3: Press the green "Start Copy" button

We come to the last step. All you need to do is click Start Copy button. The software will deeply scan the data (contacts, music, videos, sms, photos, etc) inside iPhone and move into the new Samsung Galaxy S20 Android phone.

This process might take some time. Just wait until the progress bar is completely filled.

Done! Now, you can indulge yourself in Samsung S20.

Back Up Your Samsung Galaxy S20

Clearly you don't want to see your time and effort invested in transferring all the data to your Samsung S20 phone end up nothing, so it is advisable to back up your important data in case of data loss from time to time. With the blue "Back Up Your Phone" module of Phone Transfer, you can easily back up everthing on Samsung S20 to the computer. If anything wrong happens to your data, you can restore the data back to your device.

By the way, you can use iTransfer, one of the most popular iTunes replacements in the market, to better manage your content between phone and the computer. It is also applicable in the media file management between iOS and computer.

The Bottom Line

Switching between phones is not easy, especially from iPhone to Android. Old habits die hard. It is gut-wrenching to say goodbye to your old habits related to the iPhone (want to recover iPhone data?) and embrace the freedom of new Android. Thankfully, Phone Transfer makes your data migration from one device to another as painless as possible. Download it and give it a shot!
