Simple ways to transfer data from Android to iOS
It used to be a big pain to switch from one mobile platform to the other, but it’s now easier than ever to transfer all of your old data from Android to your new iPhone or iPad.
Apple’s Move to iOS app on the Google Play store makes the process quick and easy. While it can’t transfer your apps, music, or any of your passwords, it can be used to transfer your photos, calendar, contacts, text messages, photos, and videos to your new iPhone or iPad.
The Move to iOS app supports phones and tablets running Android 4.0 or later and can transfer data to devices running iOS 9 or higher.
1.On your iPhone or iPad, begin the normal setup process until you reach the “Apps & Data” screen. From here select the “Move data from Android” option. A ten-digit code will then appear on the screen.
2.Note that if you have already completed the setup process, you will be required to erase your device. This can be done on your iPhone or iPad by going to Settings, clicking on General, followed by Reset, and choosing the “Erase all content and settings” option.
4.ou will have the option to pick and choose which items you would like to transfer to your new device. This includes your Google account, Chrome bookmarks, text messages, contacts, and photos and videos. Select the items you would like to transfer and click Next.
5.Your Android device will now begin transferring the content over to your iPhone or iPad. Depending on how much is being transferred, it could take a couple of minutes for the entire process to complete. It took me less than 10 minutes.
6.Note that while the Move to iOS app recommends you to recycle your device at the Apple Store, you may be better off selling it to a through eBay or a service like Gazelle.
