“I get a new Huawei phone and wonder how to send videos from my old iPhone to the new Android phone directly. Can someone tell me how to transfer videos from iPhone to Android?”

One of the most difficult things about switching from iPhone to Android is transferring data from one device to another. Since iOS and Android devices run on two different platforms, the process of transferring data like videos from iPhone to Android can seem impossible. But with the right tool and the right procedures, the process can become easy, seamless and even enjoyable.

In this guide, we’ve compiled some of the most effective ways to send videos from iPhone to Android without losing the quality of the original video.

Part 1. How to Send Videos from iPhone to Android by Drag and Drop

This is perhaps the easiest way to send videos from your iPhone to Android; you simply connect both devices to the computer and then drag the files from the iPhone data folder to the Android’s data folder. Follow these simple steps to use this method;

Step 1: Using USB cables, connect both the Android device and the iPhone to the computer

Step 2: Now locate the device in “My Computer” and open them to view the files. It may help to open the two devices in separate windows.

Step 3: Open the DCIM folder on the iPhone and select the videos you would like to send the Android device. You can then simply drag and drop the videos to the Android device’s DCIM folder or copy and paste them.

Google Drive presents one of the most effective ways to send videos from iPhone to Android. To be more specific, you can use the Google+ app to send the videos to another device.

Step 1: Connect both the iPhone and the Android device to Wi-Fi

Step 2: Now, download the Google+ app on your iPhone if you don’t have it already and the sign in to your Google account.

Step 4: Now install Google+ on your Android device and sign in to the same account you used to back up the photos on your iPhone.

Step 5: Go to “Photos” and you should be able to see all the photos from the iPhone there. You can then download any videos from the Google+ account to your device.

2. Using Dropbox

Much like Google Drive, you can also use Dropbox to easily transfer files from iPhone to your Android device. The process is also very simple. Follow these simple steps to do it;

Step 1: Begin by installing Dropbox on both the iPhone and Android device. Keep in mind that you will need to have an active Dropbox account to use the method. If you don’t have one, take a moment to create an account.

Step 2: Now login to our Dropbox account on the iPhone and enable the automatic camera upload feature. This will upload all photos and videos on your device to your Dropbox account.

Step 3: Now tap on the “Menu” button in Dropbox and then select “Upload” to upload the videos and photos that are already on your device. The process may take some time if you have too many photos and videos on your device. You can also select just some of the photos to transfer.

Step 4: Login to Dropbox on your Android device and you should be able to see all the photos and images on your iPhone. Select the videos you would like to transfer to the Android device and download them to the device.

It is our hope that you are able to use one of the solutions above to easily send videos from your iPhone to Android device. MobileTrans presents the easiest and least restrictive solution to use.
