Transfer iPhone data offline / via cable

I want to transfer data (contacts, calendar, pictures, videos, WhatsApp-data, etc.) from iPhone 6 to FF3. I want to chance to FF3 because of its encryption function in a business-context. That is why I can’t use cloud services for sync/ transfer.

I did not find apps working for Fairfone. Samsung SmartSwitch does not recognise FF3. AndroidFileTransfer does not read iPhone or iPhone backup data.

I have everything setup: PC, Mac, OTG-adapter, cables, software uptodate.

Any suggestions?

Welcome to the Fairphone community.

I guess there is no direct way of syncing data locally between an iPhone and an Android phone, but if you use Outlook, you can try AkrutoSync:

Or you can use MyPhoneExplorer to import the data you exported from the iPhone manually and sync it to your FP3:

BTW: Business context, encryption, sensible data and WhatsApp doesn’t go together in my opinion.

Sorry, didn’t get exactly why you can’t use because of the encryption you mentioned.
But did you have a look at this support article?

And the Google cloud service mentioned does so not help you?

No, you can’t sync sensitive data through a google cloud service. This is forbidden by german law.

Well, I assume you’re referring to GDPR (which btw is a regulation of the European Union)?

Well, no. GDPR only rules the basic questions on data protection. German regulations specify the binding rules e.g. via blacklists published by the local regulatory offices.

As I don’t use and don’t want to use a data processing contract with google there is no way to store business partner data or sensitive customer data in cloud storages.

I am somewhat disappointed about the lack of help in this forum. I was just hoping for helpful answers to my problem not corrections on knowledge of european laws.

You’re right. This was just an example. I didn’t use WhatsApp in this context. But getting to know ways to transfer every kind of data stored on iOS-devices would be nice anyways.

So there is no native way outside cloud solutions, right?

Would this be different on /e/? Which kind of transfer is proposed for /e/-Phones?

Seems that way. I don’t see anything else in the internet either.

There’s no difference on /e/.
They seem to be pondering to become active in that regard, though, but that doesn’t help you now …

Just to mention … /e/ is still considered beta, this would need consideration in a business context.
And while Fairphone and the e foundation have an official partnership going on, Fairphone don’t support anything other than their own OS on the phone.

Just looking at this issue ??
