    If you buy from a carrier store they are supposed to transfer them for you, they have machines that make it easy.

    Otherwise if your contacts are synced with outlook which I believe they should be automatically on a Windows phone, you can log in with your email account and sync contacts to the new phone.

    I did switch to iPhone 7. This link is on point

    But you have to be careful, microsoft is trying to convince you to use outlook app instead of the native iOS apps. so it does not sync automatically. I refused the offer, deleted the account and added it back again, then it worked.

    You will need to sync your contacts to your microsoft account first, and then use outlook to restore to new phone. Or to save your time, you can use phone transfer tool to transfer contacts from Windows Phone to iPhone or Android.
