Step3. In the default setting, this Phone transfer will copy all the files from the Samsung phone to the iPhone, if this is what you want, just click the ‘Start Copy‘ to run the transfer process. If you just want to transfer some files like only contacts instead of the whole library. You have to uncheck the files by manually first. Please do not disconnect the phones during the transfer process. That’s all, after all things done, you can disconnect your phones, and you will find your Samsung phone files are all on your iPhone.

The operation is the same as the part 1. After you connect your iPhone and Android devices to computer, just need to click the ‘Flip‘ button on the software.
