For those who just purchased their first iPhone, or are thinking about getting one, the first step is transferring all the data. Users may have switched operating systems, but keeping the same settings and all of their memories is a must.
The process of transferring everything over to the new phone is simpler than ever if they're using a helpful app, Move to iOS. The first of its kind from Apple, it's an Android app that connects the previous Android phone to a new model iPhone using a direct WiFi connection. Once this is done, everything is ready for the transfer.
Keep in mind that the app moves a significant amount of data but it cannot transfer any apps (they are Android platform apps, after all). It also doesn't do any saved user passwords or music. In addition, users must make sure the iPhone or iPad is running at least iOS 9—any late-model phones such as the iPhone SE or 7, or the iPad Pro will already be compatible by default.
Some users may prefer only moving their photos from the old device to the new one. In such cases, the simplest solution is to install Google Photos to the Android device and sync all the photos before making the move to the iPhone or iPad. After the move is complete, it's a straightforward matter to install Google Photos on the Apple device and download the synced photos.
This ensures that users will keep their photos even if there is unforeseen data loss as the Cloud now backs up the photos in its database.
For users who only want to transfer their contact lists in their entirety, there's also a simple solution. Google uses a special protocol known as CardDAV to synchronize contact data between devices. iPhone recognizes the protocol, so users who go this route just need to follow the on-screen directions after logging into their Google account on the iPad or iPhone.
Following these steps makes the transfer process from Android to Apple device straightforward and painless, allowing anyone to enjoy the features of their new iPhone or iPad in a matter of minutes.
