Conclusion

In this article, we showed you 4 popular tricks to transfer contacts to new iPhone. However, my personal recommendation is to use the dr.fone - Switch method as it’s easy and takes only a few minutes. Compared to that, the others have several drawbacks. Move to iOS app method can only work on an iPhone that hasn’t yet been set up and is connected to the internet. The Google method also only works if you’re connected to the internet, and if you have a Google account. And the SIM card method is unreliable as all your contacts might not get stored in the SIM card.
