The Oppo N1 is a very unique device, as it features CM 11 out of the box, delivers a unique camera that rotates back-to-front, and it also comes with a touch-sensitive back panel. In other words, the Oppo N1 is a very interesting Android smartphone, and if you happen to have switched from an iPhone to the N1, then you already know this. You might also wonder how you can easily transfer your contacts from the iPhone over to the Oppo N1, and if that's the case, then here you will find four easy methods of doing so.

Using iTunes to Transfer Contacts from an iPhone:

iTunes is more than just a music player, as it also allows you to backup and transfer / manage data from your iPhone. Using iTunes, you can share your iPhone contacts with your Oppo N1

  1. If necessary, visit the official Apple website, download the iTunes client and install it
  2. Launch iTunes on your computer
  3. Connect your iPhone to your PC using the proprietary USB cable
  4. Once connected, the iPhone will appear in iTunes. Click on it to access the handset's summary page
  5. Go to the "Info" tab and mark the "Sync Contacts With" check box
  6. Select "Google Contacts" from the drop-down menu
  7. Enter your Google account login credentials, in case you haven't done so before. Otherwise, you can click "Configure" and select a previously added Google account
  8. Click "Apply" and allow iTunes to sync your iPhone contacts with your Google account
  9. On your Oppo N1, register the same account, if you haven't done so already. To add a new account, go to "Settings" > "Accounts"
  10. Allow Google to sync the contacts with your Android handset

Using iCloud to Transfer Contacts from an iPhone:

Assuming that you've used iCloud on your iPhone before, then your contacts should've already been backed up onto your iCloud account. You can export them to your Oppo N1 using the same service

  1. Use your computer's Internet browser to access
  2. Log in with your iCloud account
  3. Click "Contacts" and select the desired ones from the list
  4. Now click the icon depicting a cog wheel, located at the bottom-left corner
  5. Select "Export vCard". This will create a VCF file containing your previously selected contacts. The file will be downloaded on your computer
  6. Import the VCF file to "Google Contacts". Alternatively, connect your Oppo N1 to your computer via USB, copy the VCF file to your "sdcard" directory, open the contacts application and select to import contacts from the external storage

Using "My Contacts Backup" to Transfer Contacts from an iPhone:

My Contacts Backup is an application that allows you to transfer contacts from an iPhone without the need of a computer. To use this method:

  1. Using your iPhone, visit the App Store and download the "My Contacts Backup" application
  2. Open the app and tap "Backup". This will create a VCF file containing your contacts
  3. Once the backup is complete, tap "Email" to compose a new email containing the VCF file attachment
  4. Enter your own Gmail address as the email's recipient, and send it
  5. On your Oppo N1, open the email containing the VCF file and download it in order to import the contacts to your Android handset

Using the "Bump" Application to Transfer iPhone Contacts:

Bump is another application that allows you to transfer contacts from an iPhone. To use this method, you don't need access to a computer. However, you do need an active internet connection on both your iPhone and your Oppo N1

  1. Use your iPhone to visit the App Store and download the "Bump" app
  2. On your Oppo N1, visit the Play Store to download the same application
  3. Open the app on both smartphones, and allow permissions if prompted to do so
  4. On your iPhone, swipe to the "contacts" section and select the contacts that you wish to transfer
  5. After the "Bump now!" label appears in the top-right corner, you can gently bump your two smartphones together to begin the transfer process
  6. When prompted, tap the "Connect" button on both smartphones. The previously selected contacts will now be transferred to your Oppo N1
