Way 2: Transfer LG to iPhone via Move to iOS

Move to iOS is an app that makes switching from Android to iPhone possible. The app is native to Android but designed by Apple.

Move to iOS lets you transfer data from LG to iPhone, including message history, contacts, mail accounts, website bookmarks, photos, calendars, and others.

While Move to iOS can help you accomplish the above, you should be aware of a couple of shortcomings:

  • If your new iPhone is already set up, you need to do a factory reset.
  • It takes too long to transfer data from LG to iPhones.
  • The transfer process can easily be interrupted if you get a phone call or switch to another app.
  • The screen can get stuck when it gets to 1 minute or 2 minutes.

How to use Move to iOS?

As per how to transfer everything from LG to iPhone, try using Move to iOS with the steps highlighted below.

Check the following before you start the transfer:

  • Wi-Fi turned on in Android device?
  • Android device and iOS device plugged into power?
  • Do you have enough space on your iPhone to accommodate what you are about to transfer?

Begin the transfer process:

  • Turn on your iPhone and place it close to the LG phone. Observe the setup instructions on your iPhone and follow them accordingly. Then, click on Set Up Manually on the Quick Start Screen.
  • Navigate to Apps & Data Screen, and click Move Data from Android.
  • Open the Move to iOS application on your LG phone.
  • On your iPhone, click Continue when Move from Android comes up. A 6-digit or 10-digit code will appear. Wait for it. Ignore any weak internet connection alert that may appear.

Way 3: Transfer LG to iPhone via Google Account [CONTACTS ONLY]

Some people suggest Google Account on forums where users ask how to transfer contacts from LG to iPhone. Without wasting your time, be informed that there is a huge limitation with using this method. This method can only be used to transfer CONTACTS ONLY.

If you seek a way to transfer all data types, I suggest using iCareFone iTransGo/Move to iOS.

Let’s see how to use google account to transfer contacts:

  • On your Android phone, go to "Settings" > "Accounts" > "Google" and make sure your contacts are synced to your Google account.
  • On your iPhone, go to "Settings" > "Passwords & Accounts" > "Add Account" > "Google" and sign in with the same Google account that you used on your Android phone.

  • Turn on the toggle switch for "Contacts" and wait for the syncing process to complete. Your Android contacts should now be available on your iPhone.

Way 4: Transfer LG to iPhone via Google Photos/Drive [PHOTOS ONLY]

Transferring LG to iPhone via Google Drive or Google Photos is possible. But, unfortunately, this is almost similar to the method above. It can only transfer photos, videos, and maybe a handful of other media files.

And since the backup has to be done through Google, you have to deal with the issue of limited storage size. For instance, the maximum storage size for each Google Drive or Google Photos is 15G.

Steps to transfer LG to iPhone through Google Photos:

  • Open Google Photos on your LG.
  • Click Settings. Toggle Backup & Sync to on. All your pictures will sync to Google Photos.
  • Install and open Google Photos on your iPhone. Ensure you log in with the same Gmail account details.
  • Download the pictures onto your iPhone.

Steps to transfer LG to iPhone through Google Drive:

  • Open Google Drive on your LG.
  • Create a new folder and upload all the photos there.
