Once both the iPhone and Android are detected you will be able to choose the data to transfer and send. The big button START COPY below is the only thing you will have to press once you have selected the files to copy.
Part 2. Send files between Android and iPhone with Move to iOS
If you just need to send files from an old Android phone to your new iPhone, Move to iOS is the default solution to switch from android phone to new iPhone. Make sure you connect the Android phone and iPhone to the same Wi-Fi.
Configure the iPhone following the standard process, and when you go to the screen Apps and data, select “Move data from Android”. After that you can tap on the Continue option to get a 10-digit code.
Then install the app Move to iOS from Google Play. Tap the option Accept for terms and conditions. Next, tap Continue and enter the 10-digit code from your iPhone or iPad to choose the files you want to send from Android phone to iPhone.
Once you've selected the files you want to transfer, tap the button NEXT and leave both devices alone until the loading bar that appears on your iPhone ends. Continue the setup process on your iPhone to get all iPhone files.

Part 3. Send files between Android and iPhone via Google account
How to send emails, contacts and calendars from Android to iPhone? In this case, the Google account is the best method for data transfer.
Go up Settings> Accounts and choose the Google account on the Android phone. Create a Google account if it's not available. Next, log into the account to upload contacts, calendar and others from Android phone to Google account.
Choose the files you want to send from an Android phone to your iPhone, such as Sync app data, Sync Calendar, Sync Contacts and Sync Gmail. It will backup all selected files from Android phone to your Google account.
On your iPhone, go to Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendars> Add Account to add the Google account. Log in to the account with the same ID and password. It will sync the calendar, contacts and other information from an Android phone to your iPhone.
The methods and solutions described above are those that we believe to be the fastest to transfer the highest number of data (even simultaneously) without having to manually transfer each type of data. Manual solutions also have the risk (always around the corner) of data loss or deletion.
