There are several ways to transfer contacts from ios to android.
One of the easiest is using a Google account.
You can also transfer contacts using Yandex.
There are several more methods and a number of applications that will help you transfer contacts. But the above are the most accessible and simple ones.
There are several proven ways to transfer contacts from iOS to Android, we will tell you in detail about each of them so that you can choose the most convenient for yourself.
Method one - via iCloud (a remote cloud service for storing information, you need to know your Apple ID before syncing).
Before exporting contacts, we'll need to make sure that contact sync is enabled. You need to open Settings, enter the iCloud section, and put the slider in the active position opposite the Contacts item.
Then, we need a computer or laptop. Turn it on, open the iCloud program on it and log in to it by entering your Apple ID.
Then select the icon with Contacts and click on it. We are waiting for the entire list to finish loading.
After that, click on one of the contacts (to select it), then press the key combination CMD + A (if we are working on a MAC), or CTRL + A (if we are working on Windows). This action will select the entire list of contacts.
Then, click on the gear icon in the lower left corner, select the "Export vCard" option. The browser will display a file with contacts, which will need to be sent to a new device and run on it. After that, all contact information will be automatically saved on the new device.
The second method is through a special application for transporting contacts (there are different versions of such applications on the AppStore). Let's use the example of the popular My Contacts Backup (https://apps.apple.com/ru/app/my-contacts-backup/id446784593 )
Download the application from the AppStore, launch it, and confirm the access permission to the contacts on our iPhone. After that, click on the green Backup button - the download process begins, we wait for it to end (usually it lasts a few seconds). After the end of the process, click on the Email button, and send yourself an email with a file in VCF format (with a list of all contacts).
On a new device, go to the mail, open this letter and run the VCF file. This will automatically transport the list of contacts to the new device.
The third way is through iCloud + DropBox.
Open the Safari browser in the iPhone, go to the iCloud.com website. After opening the site, click on the "Share" button (rectangle button with an arrow), in the list that opens, we find the item "Full version of the site", click on it. After downloading the full version of the site, we need to log in by entering our Apple ID.
After authorization, you will see the iCloud menu, in which you need to find and select the "Contacts" section (if the full version of the site hangs on an iPhone, click again at the bottom of the screen, the "Share" button, and again click "Full version of the site").
After opening the "Contacts" item, click on the gear icon in the lower left corner, double-click on it and click on "Select all ". The contact list should turn blue, after that we tap the gear again and select "Export vCard".
When the VCF file is loaded, Safari a new tab will become available. We select the item "Open in ... ...", and save it to the cloud service - the one we use - Google Drive, Drop Box, etc.
From a new device, go to the cloud storage, open and upload a file with contacts - and they will be automatically saved.
The fourth method is through the iCloud server and a special Android application CardDAV.
Download the free version of the application on Android from Google Play, launch it, and select CardDAV in the list of accounts.
Enter as the server:
For username and password, enter your Apple ID details. Click "Next".
Enter the account name and put a tick in front of "Synchronize only from server to phone", press the "Finish" button.
Wait until the download process is complete and check - Contacts will be loaded into the memory of the new phone.

Open the Safari browser in the iPhone, go to the iCloud.com website. After opening the site, click on the "Share" button (rectangle button with an arrow), in the list that opens, we find the item "Full version of the site", click on it. After downloading the full version of the site, we need to log in by specifying our Apple ID.
After authorization, you will see the iCloud menu, in which you need to find and select the "Contacts" section (if the full version of the site hangs on the iPhone, press again at the bottom of the screen, the "Share" button, and again click "Full version of the site").
Contacts from iPhone to Android can be transferred either by transforming contacts into a table file (CVS or Excel), and then by sending this file with contacts to Android via mail. We'll tell you more.
To back up all contacts to be stored in a CVS file, we need a computer. Open iCloud.com on your PC and go to your account by entering your Apple ID login and password.
Then open the "Contacts" section, find the gear-shaped icon at the bottom left and click on it. A window will open, in it we press "Select all" to select the entire list of contacts. When they are highlighted, again click on the gear, and select "Export by vCard". The files will be exported to the local drive, after which we need to reformat them to CSV format. To do this, you can use a file converter, for example, this one: http://labs.brotherli.ch/vcfconvert/
Look carefully on the website when converting files, the settings section:
in the Format section specify CSV and Comma.
Check the Add Header Line setting.
Encoding section - check Unicode.
Sections Filter and Modification - leave empty, do not specify anything.
When the settings are set, click "Convert". The file will be saved on the computer, it can be opened in a spreadsheet application, for example, Excel.
If you cannot access the computer, you can convert contacts to a CSV file on the iPhone itself, but for this you need to download a special one from the AppStore converter application, for example, SA Contacts Lite:
https://apps.apple.com/ru/app/sa-%D0%BA%D0%BE%D0%BD%D1%82% D0% B0% D0% BA% D1% 82% D1% 8B-lite / id385462419
Following the steps-instructions of the application, in a few seconds you can convert a file with contacts, as well as upload it to the cloud storage.
In addition to the fact that contacts can be exported to iCloud, you can use the Gmail service for subsequent transfer from to Android. This is done right on the iPhone:
Go to Settings, select the Contacts section, click. In the "Default account" column, enter your data from your Gmail account. After that, click on the "Import SIM contacts" option. All contact information will be imported to your Gmail account.
Now that our contacts are saved in a CSV file in iCloud or Gmail, we connect the android device to the PC via usb, and transfer the table file with contacts to the Storages folder of the new device. After that, go to the Contacts section on the android, and open the information about the contact data in it - the contacts will be copied from the CSV file.
Or send the file with the contacts to our Gmail mail, and go to our mail already from the new android - the phone will automatically save contacts from the file.
You can also use a special application from the AppStore to backup contacts on an iPhone, for example, My Contacts BackUp: https://apps.apple.com/ru/app/my-contacts-backup/id446784593. It will convert files and sendt them to Gmail-mail, which will need to be entered from android in order to save contacts on the phone.
Ask questions, we will be happy to discuss!

All of the above did not help me.
Solved the problem with google drive, downloaded it to the iPhone, copied all the data "video, contacts, photos, etc." and then synchronized on android. Thumbs up if my advice helped you.
I made it much easier. I have not set up any Gmail accounts on the iPhone. Just installed MyContactsBackup, run it, click Backup , when the file is formed, the Email button appears, click it and send it to the mail that is configured on the android. Right from the box, click on the file, the system offers options for programs with which to open the file, select contacts , the import takes place and all your contacts on the phone.
On iPhone, you can add a Google account, transfer contacts to it. After that, use this account on your android smartphone. You can also use third-party applications My Contacts Backup. It exports contacts in a format suitable for android devices, and sends them to mail, from which you can then transfer them to a new phone. This can be done manually on the apple icloud service.
