Are you planning to switch from an Android phone to an iPhone and wondering how to transfer your photos? While it may seem a bit complicated since you can't directly send photos via Bluetooth, there are still ways to transfer your photos from Android to iPhone using various platforms. In this article, we will explore three methods to help you seamlessly transfer your photos and make your transition smoother.

2. Transfer Photos from Android to iPhone using iCloud
iCloud is a cloud-based storage service provided by Apple for its devices, including iPhones. It functions similarly to Google Drive.
