Upgrading to a new Huawei from an old android phone or iPhone is an inevitable calamity that always results in the loss of contacts or other data stored on the old phone. To avoid data loss, there will be a necessity to transfer data from your old iPhone 5/5C/5S, Samsung, Huawei, HTC, LG, Xiaomi, Oppo to Huawei P9/P9 Plus, especially contacts.
