I am trying to some sort of adapter or cable to connect my iPhone 7 lightening cable to my S22 Ultra's cable so I can by the correct adapter or connector or whatever it is called.   I need it to transfer all compatible data from my iPhone 7 to my brand new s22 ultra through Samsung's Smart Switch.   I have wirelessly transferred some through my icloud,  but there's a lot of stuff that can't be transferred wirelessly. 

I am not having much luck. 

Any help and/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you in advance!!

@NC4 Samsung's Smart switch does a great job of transferring information from your old phone to the new phone. I've never used it with an iPhone but I would expect your crucial info to be transferred. 

An adapter is suggested since many people already have the 2 cables and simply need a device to connect the 2. There is no noticeable file transfer speed difference between adapter or single cable. 

If a transfer is stopped part way through the process, you would need to restart it. An alternative might be to select custom from the Smart Switch options and only do a partial transfer. Then on your next transfer select items which weren't selected before. Continue until you get all the items transferred. 

You need to go into iMessage settings and turn off iMessage. If you don't, you won't get any messages on your new phone.

My process is to move the SIM card from the old phone to the new phone. Then do the file transfer using Smart Switch. This will ensure that all text messages which come in during the transfer go to the new phone.

A Micro USB-C doesn't exist. And yes, the ultra will come with a USB-C cable in the box. You'd need a lightning to usbc adapter to connect your s22 ultra to your iPhone. But I'm really not sure it will even work. Try finding some videos on YouTube. But the cable is just USB-C, not micro USB

Thanks for taking the time to respond! 

May I ask why you don't think it will work?

Where can I find the lightening to USB C adapter? 

I spent like 10 hours just yesterday,  (so many more on other days),  and watched a bunch of YouTube videos.   A few mentioned the adapter I think you are talking about, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

Tried talking to Samsung, but the people I spoke with were not any help.  Samsung's website even mentions a smart switch adapter, but they didn't know what I was talking about or where to get one.  You would think they would sell something that they made called a Samsung smart switch adapter.   

Any suggestions on how to move my data over?

Thank you so much!

@NC4 The easiest solution is a lightning to USB C cable like this https://www.amazon.com/Apple-MQGJ2AM-A-Lightning-USB-C/dp/B07CMN7DCX

@LongHiker 

Thank you so much for the link and for what seems so simple.  I can't believe that Samsung didn't know about that!! 

So the ends of this cable connects directly into each phone?   So I don't need some kind of adapter to connect my iPhone lightening cable to my Samsung galaxy s22? 

This cable can be used to transfer data?  

Do I use smart switch?   Apple doesn't have a Samsung smart switch app.

Thank you LongHiker!!

@LongHiker 

Does the cable you provided a link to have to be an Apple product? 

What does 1m mean?  If that the length of the cable?

I remember seeing different numbers like 1.0, 1.5, etc.

Thank you!
