Not only is the iPhone an amazing cellphone but it is a great camera device as well. You have likely captured and stored a lot of photos on your device. Here is how you get these photos copied to your OnePlus device.

Option 1. Use the File Explorer Utility

This is the old-style copy and paste method that lets you easily copy photos from your iPhone and paste them on your Android device. You do not need to install any apps for this to work.

Step 1. Plug-in both your iPhone and OnePlus device to your computer using a USB cable.

Step 2. Launch the storage of each device in a separate File Explorer window.

Step 3. Drag files or photos you want from the iPhone’s DCIM folder to the Photos folder on the OnePlus storage.

Your selected photos will be copied over to your OnePlus device. These photos will then appear in the Gallery app on your device.

Option 2. Use a Photo Sync App

If you do not have access to a computer or you are having issues connecting your device to your computer, you can use a computer-free method to get your photos transferred.

Step 1. Download and install Google Photos on both your iPhone and OnePlus device.

Step 2. Launch the app on your iPhone and open the Settings menu. Turn on the Back up & sync option in the app.

How to Transfer Contacts from iPhone to OnePlus

Unlike other data types, contacts can be transferred using multiple ways. It is because most of the time your contacts are not saved at a single place.

Option 1. Use Google Contacts Sync

One of the ways to get your iPhone contacts on your OnePlus device is to sync the iPhone contacts with your Google account first. This will make the contacts reflect on your Android device.

Step 1. Head to Settings > Contacts > Accounts > Add Account on your iPhone and add the Google account that you use on your OnePlus device.

iCloud lets you export all of your contacts as a single vCard file. You can import this file into Google Contacts and it will sync your contacts with your device.

Step 1. Access the Contacts section on the iCloud website, select the contacts to transfer, click on the gear icon at the bottom, and select Export vCard.

Option 3. Email Yourself Your Contacts

You have probably been using this method to transfer various types of files. It’s available to transfer your contacts as well but it is only ideal if there are a handful of contacts to be shared. Because you need to choose contacts one by one.

Step 1. Open the Phone app and tap on Contacts. Select the contact you want to transfer to your OnePlus device.

Step 2. Tap on Share Contact followed by Mail. Put in your own email address in the To field and you will receive the selected contact in your inbox.
