How to Transfer Photos and Contacts from iPhone to iPhone by Syncing

If both iPhones use the same Apple ID account, then the easiest way for you to transfer photos and contacts from iPhone to iPhone could be using iCloud. iCloud is designed to sync data across your devices that use the same Apple ID. Thus, when you switch to another iPhone and don't intend to change the iCloud account, you can turn on iCloud Photos and iCloud Contacts to sync photos and contacts from one iPhone to another automatically.

The issue "iCloud photos not syncing" may occur when you try this method. If you encounter such a problem, don't worry. You can refer to the troubleshooting guide to fix the issue.

To use a cloud-based service like iCloud, there are some preparations you need to make:

  • Ensure that you are using the same iCloud account on both devices.
  • Ensure there is a stable Wi-Fi connection on both iPhones.
  • Ensure there is enough iCloud storage to save the contacts and photos to be synced.

If you are ready, follow the steps below to transfer photos and contacts from iPhone to iPhone:

To transfer photos from iPhone to iPhone:

Step 1. Go to the Settings app on your iPhone and tap [your name].

Step 2. Go to "iCloud" > "Photos" and toggle on "iCloud Photos."

Step 3. Choose "Optimize [device] Storage" or "Download and Keep Originals" according to your need.

Step 4. Repeat these steps on the target iPhone and wait for the data syncing process to finish.

How to Transfer Contacts and Photos from iPhone to iPhone Wirelessly

Not all of you want to transfer all photos and contacts from one iPhone to another I guess. Is there any solution for you to transfer specific items quickly? If that's what you want to do, you will like AirDrop - the file-sharing service available on iPhone, iPad, iPod, Mac, and other Apple products.

With AirDrop, you will be able to send contacts, photos, videos, locations, websites, and more between Apple devices over Wi-Fi. Just keep both iPhones within the Bluetooth range, then follow the steps below.

Notes: Similarly, "AirDrop not working" happens sometimes and prevents you from sending contacts and photos from one iPhone to another successfully. That's when you need to tackle the problem or try an alternative way to get things done.

To transfer contacts from iPhone to iPhone:

Step 1. Enable AirDrop on both iPhones. (You need to turn on both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.)

Step 2. On the source iPhone, go to the Contacts app, tap the contact you want to share, and tap "Share Contact."

Step 3. Choose "AirDrop" and choose the target iPhone.

Step 4. On the target iPhone, select "Accept" in the prompt to receive the item.

AirDrop transfers contacts one by one. Thus, if you need to transfer multiple contacts, you need to repeat the steps above.

Share a contact

Step 1. Turn on AirDrop on both iPhones and make sure they can find each other.

Step 2. Go to the Photos app and select the pictures you want to transfer.

Step 4. Select the target iPhone and go to click "Accept" on the target iPhone to start transferring photos from one iPhone to another.
