Hi Everyone, 
I've switched to Samsung from Apple and I know i how to transfer my contacts and text messages to my new S23+.
Since Apple doesn't save the contact on SIM, it makes it difficult to copy all my contact on my new phone. Same for the text messages.

Hi, you can download Smart Switch on your iPhone to transfer your contacts to your Samsung Galaxy S23+. For your text messages, I don't know if you'll be able to transfer them because Apple uses a different messaging protocol (iMessage), which isn't compatible with Android devices

I did download smart switch, but it says that I have to scan to QR code on my S23+. I can't find the QR code🧐

Install smart switch. Launch smart switch. Tap the down arrow receive data. On next screen tap on iPhone Apple. Follow instructions.

You can transfer using cable connecting both phones, or using WiFi.

You might also be able to export you contacts from iCloud, to a vcard file, and then import that into your S23+.
