Find out how to transfer high-quality iPhone videos (MOV files) to Android devices.
You need to transfer an iPhone MOV clip to an Android device immediately for personal or professional reasons. You can choose from a variety of methods to transfer videos (MOV/MP4) from an iPhone to an Android device. But the positive and negative are mixed together. There are solutions that do what you want them to do, but they sacrifice quality in the process. Others are still fully functional, but have size constraints that can be problematic for videos. We’ve sorted through the less-than-ideal options and come up with the best, easiest ways to copy videos from an iPhone to an Android device.
Drag And Drop Process
Without a doubt, dragging and dropping is the quickest and easiest way to transfer videos shot on an iPhone to an Android device. A standard USB cord will do the trick. Then, here’s what you need to do to get your videos to us:
|1.||iTunes is a digital media player that can be downloaded for free and installed on a computer. That, or update to the most recent version of iTunes.|
|2.||To transfer videos from an iPhone to a computer, you must first connect the device to the computer using a USB cable, then access the DCIM folder once your desktop detects the iPhone, pick the desired videos, and transfer all to your native hard disc, where you may then rename the folder.|
|3.||You can also connect your Android smartphone to your computer via a USB cable, then simply drag and drop the media folder into your Android smartphone to watch it.|
The use of text is a popular method for transferring videos from iPhones to Android devices. The steps are really simple. The process is selecting the required videos on the iPhone and sending them via text message to Android. It’s finished! Well, here are some details to focus on more than usual:
|1.||You can use your iPhone’s SMS feature by switching it on and disabling iMessage and Multimedia Messaging Service (designed for iPhones).|
|2.||Make sure the connection is strong and solid. In addition, turn on “Cellular Data” in the iPhone’s “Cellular” settings|
|3.||Verify If There Is An Update Available For The Program. If there is a new update, install it before you leave.|
|4.||Keep the file size of your video to between 300 and 600 kilobytes.|
Usage of Cloud
Cloud services can transfer huge iPhone videos to Android. They do more than backup data. Most let you share iPhone videos to Android without hardware restrictions. Dropbox and Google Drive, with 2Gigabytes and 15Gb of free storage space for videos and other files, are the cloud services’ gold and silver winners. Upgrade to premium or complete more tasks to increase cloud storage. Share iPhone (MOV) videos to Android with Dropbox or Google Drive. Take Google Drive.
|1.||Launch Google Drive on your iPhone, then sign in using your Google credentials.|
|2.||To transfer videos from an iPhone to Google Drive, go to “Drive,” then “My Drive,” and finally “Upload data” or “Upload folder.”|
|3.||After your upload is complete, navigate to My Drive and select the videos you wish to transfer to Android.|
|4.||Select “Share” from the context menu, then add names or emails under the “People” heading.|
|5.||First, select “Get shareable link,” then “Done,” and finally, “Send the link (no sign in necessary)” or “Sent an invitation” if the receiver doesn’t already have a Google account.|
|6.||When you’re ready to watch this movie on your Android, just hit the “Send” button. The same procedures apply to uploading and sharing videos with Dropbox.|
Assuming you already have a Dropbox or Google account, the above workaround is really useful. In the event that you do not have any such accounts, you may want to think about using Email instead. However, there is a glaring absence in the video Emailing provides. A video of that size is quite substantial. Simply said, you can only transfer a limited amount of data (i.e., a tiny video) from an iPhone to an Android device. Were it any smaller, we’d hardly see it. Common email services like Gmail and Yahoo have a 25MB ceiling, while iCloud Mail, Hotmail, and Outlook are even more limited with a 20MB upper limit.
Third-party applications (Send Anywhere, Phone Clone), WhatsApp, Kakao, Skype, Facebook Messenger, etc., are other techniques worth considering in addition to the ones already listed. Alternatively, you can record video on your iPhone, then transfer the files to your Android device to watch later or share with others.
