As iOS 11 comes out, the new iPhone, maybe the name of iPhone X & iPhone 8 Plus, is awaiting its release day. Are you ready to get it? Or you may want to buy an iPhone X or iPhone 8 Plus upgraded to iOS 11. But, what do you do with your Huawei Ascend/Honor/Mate phone? You may find it kind of difficult to transfer the data stored on Huawei phone to your new iOS 11 devices.
I believe it is not too hard to change a phone but if you have a handy application to help you. It is known that Huawei phones run Android Operation System, which is quite different from iOS 10/11. And not only Huawei runs Android, but also a lot of others like Sony, LG. And it is never too easy to transfer data between Android and iOS 12 / 11.
Huawei indeed developed a software called HiSuite to back up and restore data so that we can get the data transferred actually. But it asked us to finish it with two actions, which are really troublesome. And sometimes, it can cause data loss during transmission. In this case, dr.fone – Switch & dr.fone – Backup&Restore(Android) may suit you down to the ground. It is compatible with devices with Android, iOS and Symbian. And all the data are transferable including contacts, call logs, messages, photos, audios, videos and apps. And it is very easy for users even the novices.
Now, here goes a brief tutorial about how to transfer data from Huawei to iOS devices:
Part 1. Backup Huawei Ascend/Honor/Mate phone data and then Restore to iOS 10 or iOS 11
First you need to download and install dr.fone, and then run it to get yourself face to face with the primary window.

Tap on “Backup&Restore“, and connect your old Huawei phone to your computer. Then you will see a box with a list of data, check the one you want to back up, and click on “Backup”.

After it finishes backing up, simply eject your old Huawei phone and plug in the new iOS device one. Then tap on “Backup&Restore” on the primary window. On the left box, you can see a few backup files with names of devices and backup dates. Choose the one you want to restore, and on the middle box choose the data.
