How to Transfer Huawei Contacts to iPhone Quickly
No doubt that Huawei phone is touted as one of the top 10 phone makers in Android camp. Meanwhile Apple's iPhone is a good example in terms of design, user-experience, safety and features. At some point it is quite understandable that you may want to give up your old Huawei Android phone and try iOS. Anyway, the first thing is to bring the Huawei contacts over to the shiny new iPhone. (if you're going the opposite way, check out the article on getting contacts on iPhone to Huawei phone.)
However, you are handling two completely different ecosystems and this is nothing like transferring contacts from Huawei to another Android device which can be more easily synced in between. When it comes to two different platforms, things get a little bit tricky. Most of the time, Apple doesn't allow direct sync of iPhone's files with Android because of Apple's walled garden and high security features.
Thankfully, transferring Huawei contacts over to iPhone is not out of this world and there are several ways and tools to finish this task. Phone Transfer is a rather simple data transfer tool which simply copies the contacts and other data files from your old Huawei to your new iPhone. With this multipurpose program in hand, you can do a couple of task.
- Do a quick transfer of contacts from Huawei to iPhone, complete with other data types including text messages, songs, pictures, calendar and video files.
- Do a safe and effective backup of phone data in the computer in case of data loss.
- Do a full-scale restoration of data from the computer, iTunes/ iCloud backup or OneDrive.
- Do a complete data erasure to guard against data leakage (it is exclusive to Mac version).
- Supports almost all kinds of smartphones including iPhone, Android, WinPhone and Symbian
Now, download the program on your either PC or Mac machine and follow the steps below. At the end of the process, you will know coping contacts from Huawei device to Apple's iPhone is a breeze.
Step 1: Connect Huawei and iPhone to the computer
