How to Transfer Data from iPhone to Android without using a Computer

This article will help readers who either use or intend to use an iPhone on ways data can be transferred from an iPhone to an Android phone or device and vice versa without using a computer.

Almost everyone knows that the iPhone and apple ™ products in general have a strong firewall or security that makes it almost impossible to transfer data or share files with non-apple devices.

Transferring data from an iPhone to an Android phone or device is not as difficult as it used to be even without a computer.

Transferring Contacts from iPhone to Android

Your contacts could be one of the first things you want moved from your iPhone to an Android phone.

Your contacts are linked to your email account. Therefore, you can conveniently store them in iCloud or in your Gmail account if you have one.

Here’s how to find out:

1. Tap Settings.

2. Tap Calendar.

3. Tap Default Account.

You can sign into your Android device with your Google account if Google is your default account.

Are you using iCloud for your contacts? If so, then using vCards can come in handy and you should transfer your contacts there (these are contact cards that can be shared).

You can choose to share each contact card individually.

In your contact, go to each contact individually and choose Share Contact.

Thankfully, you can easily email the vCard to your Gmail and then access it from your Android phone.

Transferring Messages and Emails

Moving mails is easy. You sign in with your Google ID to get any emails in Gmail. Or you sign in with your iCloud account details, or your other email address, and you can read your mail messages.

Moving messages i.e. SMS is very difficult. And it’s probably best not to bother.

Applications like AnyTrans will come in handy if you want to preserve any old messages. It will also take care of all your other media files too.

Transferring Media Files like Photos, Videos, and Music

It’s pretty easy to move your snaps from iPhoto to Google Photos, using the Google Photos iOS app.

Here are steps to follow:

1. Download Google Photos from the App Store on your iPhone.

2. Open Google Photos.

3. Sign in with your Google Account.

4. Choose Backup & Sync. (It’s best to leave ‘Use mobile data to back up’ set as Off unless you have unlimited data.)

5. Tap Continue.

Transfer your music using the Google Music app and by installing Music Manager for Mac.

This application, which can be installed in macOS can help you to transfer all your music in iTunes to Google’s cloud effectively.

Having done that, you can go ahead to use your Android phone to stream all of your music from Google Play Music.

It’s advisable to perform this procedure with a wi-fi connection and not mobile data because it consumes lot of data.

Alternatively, due to the fact that transferring media over mobile network is very expensive in terms of data and a wi-fi connection is not always available, you can use a xender.

This app is easy to use as files can be transferred between devices without Internet connection.

How to use the xender

1. On the Android phone or device launch the xender app

2. Create connection (depends on the version of xender some will show create connection for older versions while newer versions will show send or receive click on send) or connect to iPhone.

3. On the iPhone, go to settings, enter wi-fi and click on the xender address there

4. On the iPhone, launch the xender app and join connection or receive and through this you can send very large files to the Android phone or device without using Internet connection.

The aforementioned steps are some of the many ways to transfer data from an iPhone to an Android phone; there are other ways but these processes are the simplest to use.


In conclusion, as explained above, data can be transferred from an iPhone to an Android device without using a computer. And it’s not fiction but total reality.

You do not need to be afraid of losing important data when switching to a new device, everything can still be intact on your new device using the cloud storage technology or other means of data sharing as mentioned above.
