Since iPhone and Huawei devices run two different operating systems, transferring files from one device to another is usually a stressful task. It is because the Huawei phones do not support the iPhone’s AirDrop feature and most Android sharing options are not supported on the iPhone. Despite that, a few apps and methods have come into existence to help bridge the gap.

If you have been an iPhone user all this time and now you are switching to a Huawei device, the first thing you will want to do is transfer your iPhone’s data over to your Huawei device. Applying to all Huawei series like Huawei P10/P20/P30, Mater 10/20/30, etc. While you can certainly use the methods you already know, there are many more ways that you might not know about.
