I want to update from my old Android phone to iPhone 7, but I have shot some videos with my old Android phone, so I want to transfer those videos to the new iPhone. I wonder is there any easy way to realize it? I’ll appreciate your suggestions, thanks!

Thus, if you want to transfer videos from PC to iPhone 7 for an enjoyment, you will need to convert your videos to iPhone-compatible formats. In certain situations, iTunes will do the conversion stuffs for you, but you will probably need HandBrake or Leawo Video Converter Ultimate to give you a hand.
