How to Transfer Google Contacts to Your iPhone

Nowadays, technologies have evolved so high that you need not note down all the contacts from one phone and enter them manually on your other phone. Instead, there are several ways to transfer all your contacts.

But this gets trickier when you want to transfer all your contacts to a cross-platform operating system phone—for example, transferring the contacts from Android to iPhone. However, the best possible way to move your Google contacts to your iPhone would be by syncing the contacts through iCloud or adding the Gmail account to your iPhone.

Don’t worry if you are new to this and wondering how to do it. We are here with two simple solutions on how you can transfer Google contacts to your iPhone explained in the post below.
