Use Apple’s Official App
Move to iOS is the first application by Apple that helps Android users migrate to iOS.

This application enables users to shift bookmarks, email accounts, calendars, and contacts from their Android smartphone to the iOS device over a private Wi-Fi network that iOS created in the process.
Follow the below-mentioned procedure to transfer your contacts using Move to iOS:
Step 1: Install the Move to the iOS application on your Android.
Step 2: Launch the app.
Step 3: Tap “Continue” when prompted.
Step 4: Tap “Agree” if you agree to the terms and conditions after reading them.
Step 5: The application will now request permission to access your data, such as your contacts and messages; grant them.
Step 6: You will now be prompted to enter a 12-digit code from iOS.
Step 7: Grab your iPhone to follow the on-screen instructions to begin the setup process.
Step 8: Once you have reached the “App & Data” screen, tap “Move Data to Android,” and a 12-digit code will be presented to you.
Step 9: On your Android device enter this code into the Move to iOS application.
Step 10: After this, you will be able to select the data that you want to move from your Android device to the new iPhone.
