    Method 2: How to Copy Contents from iPhone to Samsung

    Except the method above, the other program I want to introduce to copy contents between iPhone and Android would be Copy My Data app, which is completely free to use. Please check out the briefly guide below.

    Step 1 Download Copy My Data App
    Please download and install the Copy My Data app on both of your old iPhone and new Samsung. Then launch it.

    Step 2 Pair the Two Smartphones
    On the home screen of the app on iPhone, please click on the "Next" button and the program would scan the nearby devices which share the same Wi-Fi (so you need to connect your Samsung with the same Wi-Fi as iPhone). Select the Samsung Galaxy S8 as the target device you want to transfer data to. Before transferring, please tap on the "Copy data to selected device" on iPhone as the sender and choose "Copy data from selected device" on Android as the receiver.

    Step 3 Copy Data from iPhone to Android
    Choose the data such as contacts, calendar, Photos and videos on iPhone and tap on the "Next" button. Then the application would start to copy the data to your new Samsung Galaxy S8.

    Though the Copy My Data app is fully free to use, you are not allowed to transfer all the data types on your smartphone. Actually, it only supports the contacts, calendar, Photos and videos to transfer. But with Phone Transfer program, you can copy all the data to new phone in one click. So why not have a try?
