Transfer Contacts, Photos, Contacts, Notes, Bookmarks and More to iPhone Using Free iPhone Care

If neither of the aforementioned methods satisfies your demand or if you think both methods are rather complex to transfer your data on BlackBerry to an iPhone. I will recommend you to use Free iPhone Care, a free iOS transfer tool that can transfer files in batch and allow you editing your mobile files on computer with ease.

Part 1. Copy your files from BlackBerry to your PC or Mac

This is quite simple. Plug in your BB phone, and open up file explorer on computer. Navigate the content (Pictures, Notes, Videos, Contacts, etc.) on SD card (usually users store media files on SD card; but you should also check the separate device storage), and copy the directories and paste them to your PC/Mac.

Part 2. Install Free iPhone Care and Import your files to iPhone directly
