How to transfer contacts and calendars from an Android phone to an iPhone

However, this shouldn't necessarily be the case. In recent years, manufacturers have cared to provide tools, which help users quickly extract their data from their old handset and put it in the new one. As our tests with HTC's Transfer, Samsung's Smart Switch, and Sony's Xperia Transfer proved – while some of these apps make the process a bit easier than others, we could say that they all manage to do their jobs in a painless manner, be it in an Android-to-Android or iOS-to-android switch.
But what if you wish to try one of these new, large-screened iPhone 6 or 6 Plus? We all know that Apple likes to keep their ecosystem a bit more... isolated from others, but would this cause headaches for one who wishes to try their product out? Well, not too much, we found.
The most essential part of your information on an Android phone – your contacts, emails, and calendar events – are transferred extremely easy. So let's start with that:

Backup phones are good to have. They may have lent an android to a friend. Android is very open. You'd think that Apple would have a migration app. Samsung smart switch works great and pulls icloud data.

Do the same thing...sync contacts and calendar to gmail account on iPhone and then add account to android phone and select contacts and calendar for sync. you can use exchange/outlook account instead of gmail if you want to!

Unnecessary. once you go android you most likely never go back to iphone.

thats not universal by any means , a lot of midrange android phones are being sold to ignorant customers, which don't offer a great expereince ,laggy UI on top of slow processors and Gpus. So some might save up money and get a iPhone rather than a Android flagship cause of bad experience. the Customer satisfaction is quite low for many android OEMs other than samsung. Non-techie users/older generation using Android might also prefer the simplicity and speed of iO.S as well. also sometimes friends / girlfriends might be using a iPhone which might force people to switch to iO.S in order to use iMessage or facetime. and many more reasons

are you really saying that they aren't any low end android phones with bad processors , cameras , poorly designed UI ? c'mon even your favorite samsung has a few in their lineup then there's Lg , Htc desire series , kyocera , blu smartphones the list is endless, it would take too long.

You can also use Office Outlook (the PIM-part of MS Office). iPhones sync to outlook through iTunes and you can use something like MyPhoneExplorer on Android to sync your device locally. No need to use any cloud especially when privacy is a concern.

Google account is very useful to transfer contacts from Android to iPhone. But all must be done with the internet connection. And when syncing Android music to iPhone in bulk, the slow speed is totally a pain. May be we can use USB cable to transfer contacts and calendars from Android to computer, and then get a third-party tool, like iOS File Transfer, to transfer contacts and calendars to iPhone from computer. Also you can use this too to sync iPhone contacts to Mac or PC, and then copy the data from computer to Android. The whole transferring process is safe and quick.

With Gmail: If your contacts are synchronized in your gmail account, tt means you only need to put that gmail account over your new phone and switch the synchronization to on position, once the synchronization completes you will see all the contacts will appear on your new phone.

I built an app for this very purpose. There is literally no setup needed. The apps name is Qikshare, it's a free app and all you need to do is download the app to both devices and from within the app click contacts (on the sending devices) -> select all -> Send -> then you choose your receiving phone from the dropdown list (The phone just needs to be nearby). Thats it! It's available on the Google Play Store and the Apple Store "Qikshare"
