The Best And Free Way To Send Big Files From Android To iPhone

One of biggest disappointment with Apple devices is the fact that it does not let you share files with any other mobile OS like Android and Windows phone.

I have come across a free Android app, which lets you send files from your Android device to any other iOS device. And the developers have suggested that its iOS app would be out soon and it would allow you to send files from iPhone to Android too.

But in this post, we would be talking about the Android to iPhone traffic.

Intro To Fast File Transfer

We do have few apps available which let you do the same, the problem comes when you have huge files to send. But this app named, Fast File Transfer has been designed in such a manner that it proves to be perfect for sending huge files.

This app uses Wi Fi tethering and won’t use device’s Internet or any common WiFi which makes the whole transfer very fast (20 times faster than conventional Bluetooth transfer).

Fast File Transfer does not have any dependencies on the receiver device type. It implies that you can send big files from Android to any device which has a WiFi connectivity provision.

How To Send Big Files From Android To iPhone

  • Get on to Google Play Store, look for Fast File Transfer and get it installed
  • Once installed, tap on it to launch it, enter the device name and password (if you wish to set one, its not mandatory) and tap on OK button
  • Get on to iPhone or iPad now, and get on to Settings and turn the WiFi ON
  • Now on your Android device, navigate to any File Explorer where you need to tap and hold the file that you wish to share
  • On from the menu, tap on Send, Share whichever option is displayed as its version dependent
