Send Anywhere is also a good alternative on data transfer. It did a good job on Photos, Videos, Contacts and Files transfer between Samsung and iPhone 12.

Shareit, just as it is named, is to share files between different platforms. Based on a demanding internet when you do a file sharing between Samsung and iPhone 12.
