send videos from iPhones to Androids

Are you looking for a way to send videos from iPhones to Android? Welcome to the right place. I will be listing four methods I use on how to send videos from iPhones to Androids. Videos help get memories of places you visited or occasions you want to preserve.

Or a documentary you made about yourself. Making video records using an iPhone is not the issue. I even recommend you record videos using iPhones since it has awesome camera specs that some Android phones don’t possess. But some apps help enhance the recording features of Android phones. The real problem we usually face is when we want to transfer these videos.

Transferring data from an iPhone to Android is usually difficult since both mobiles operate on different platforms. However, with the right tips and steps, you can easily transfer videos or any form of data without the usual difficulty you mostly go through. Let’s quickly check these steps out and how we can use them.

4 Ways To Transfer Video From iPhones To Android Phones With Ease

As I earlier mentioned, I will be giving you the four ways we have found out that can help you transfer videos or any kind of file from iPhones to Android phones. All you have to do is to select any of the methods I will be listed below. And I must advise that you follow each step as I have listed it.

1. Using Drag And Drop

The simplest method you can use is to transfer videos from iPhones to Androids. All you need for this method to work out is, a USB cable, a device driver for both iPhone and Android. These are necessary, for your system to detect both devices with ease. If all these are available just follow the steps below.

  • Firstly, you have to download iTunes on your computer if you don’t have it. And make sure it is up to date.
  • Connect your iPhone to your computer using a USB cable.
  • If your computer successfully detects your iPhone, go to the DCM folder and select all the videos you wish to transfer.
  • Copy the selected videos and paste them into your computer’s local drive. I will advise you to create a new folder for that.
  • Now, connect your Android to your computer. Select the folder you copy the videos into and drag and drop it into your Android phone.

You can also drag and drop the videos directly from your iPhone to your Android device. However, this method can be halted for an unknown reason especially you are trying to copy a large file. To avoid these unknown errors, just follow the above steps.

2. Using Cloud Storage

Most people are only thought cloud storage is only useful for making backups. But what you don’t know is that some cloud storage services allow you to transfer large files like videos. If you want to transfer large video files from iPhones to Android devices without losing their quality, using cloud storage services is the best.

The two recommended cloud storage services good for making transfers are Google Drive and Dropbox. Both have 15 GB and 2 GB storage space for storing and sending. The two cloud storage services I listed are free to use. I will be giving the steps you need to send video files for both services.

Google Drive

  • Log in to your Dropbox on the iPhone and enable the automatic camera upload feature. This will then upload all of your photos and videos to your Dropbox account.
  • Tap on the Menu button and select upload to all your photos and videos from your iPhone. Take note, if you have a large number of photos or videos, the process will take some time before uploading all. However, you can select the video you want to upload.
