Xperia Transfer 2 is an official data transfer app released by Sony Mobile Communications, which allows you to migrate photos, music, contacts, calendars, etc., from your old iPhone/Android smartphone to a Sony Xperia phone. Nevertheless, this app only supports iPhone with iOS 9 or later and Xperia 1/Xperia 5/Xperia Pro/Xperia 10 with Android 6 or higher versions.
If both of your devices meet the requirements, you can begin with the following steps.
1. Run the Xperia Mobile Transfer app on your Sony Xperia phone, tap Next, and select the other device as an iPhone.
2. Connect your iPhone with the Sony Xperia via a USB host cable. Click Trust when Trust This Computer message pops up on your iPhone.
3. After pairing your devices, choose the content you hope to copy on your iPhone and hit Transfer. Then, tap Accept to agree to the privacy notice and wait until the transfer process is complete.
You can also send data from iPhone to Sony Xperia via Google Drive. The whole process takes two steps: back up your iPhone contacts, photos, calendars, and videos to Google Drive and restore the backup content to your Sony Xperia phone.
How to transfer contacts from iPhone to Sony Xperia XA? You can check the following tips.
1. Back up iPhone contacts to Google Drive. On your iPhone, install Google Drive from App Store, open it, and sign in with a valid Google account. Next, find the Backup settings, choose Contacts, and click Start Backup to sync the contacts to Google Drive.
2. Restore the Google Drive contacts to your Sony Xperia phone. On your Sony Xperia, go to Settings > Accounts & sync > Google > log in with the same Google account you use on iPhone for backup > enable the Contacts option > hit Sync now.
Alternatively, you can click the Backup & Restore option under Settings > Restore > select the relevant backup file which contains contacts > tap Restore to get the backup file to your Sony Xperia.
Finally, you can use iCloud to make the iPhone to Sony transfer. However, this way works for transferring contacts rather than any other iPhone. Besides, the whole process is complex. If you never mind it, you can follow our instructions below.
1. Open iPhone's Settings > tap your name > choose iCloud > enter your Apple ID to sign in > toggle on Contacts to sync the contacts to iCloud.
2. Visit iCloud.com from a computer web browser and sign in with the same Apple ID. After that, tap the Contacts tab > press Show Actions menu (or the gear icon) > select Export vCard to save the iPhone contacts to your computer.
3. Connect your Sony Xperia to the PC via a USB cable. When the computer recognizes your phone, open the internal storage on your Sony Xperia and copy & paste the vCard file to the SD card.
4. Disconnect the Sony device from the computer and open the Contacts app. Afterward, click the menu icon > choose the Manage contacts option > Import/Export > Import from internal storage > find the vCard file and import it to the Contacts app.
You now find that all the above four easy methods can finish iPhone to Sony transfer, but there are distinctions. The Google Drive and iCloud's way only transfer limited file types from iPhone to Sony Xperia, and Xperia Transfer 2 does not work for all Sony devices. And only Coolmuster Mobile Transfer can safely move multiple iPhone files to Sony in the shortest time. Therefore, it is not hard for you to make the decision.
