How to Transfer Data from Android to iPhone Device

How to Transfer Data from Android to iPhone Device

0.0/7 rating (0 votes)

If you are an Android user and thinking to shift to iPhone, perhaps the biggest worry for you at the time is to find out how to transfer data from Android to iOS. By data I mean everything: contacts, music, messages, videos, pictures, notes. Well, it seems transferring data from Android to iOS is not that difficult. In fact, Google and Apple recently launched apps and tools which enable you to easily transfer all the data from Android to iPhone. Apple’s latest app makes it very easy to transfer data.

Let’s see in detail how to transfer data from Android to iPhone without any trouble.

Using Move to iOS Feature

In iOS 9, Apple gave a “Move to iOS” app only to facilitate users to move to iOS platform easily. What this app does? It transfers all your data, messages, contacts, internet history, website bookmarks, images and everything else from your Android to your new iPhone wirelessly.

So the easiest way to use this app. Just use Move to iOS app in your iPhone. 

1. When you will setup your iPhone, you will get the following screen in the process. This is where the device asks you where you would get the apps and data. Here, you will see an option “Move Data from Android” as shown in the image.

2. On your Android device, Tap on Google Play Store app and type "Move to iOS"Get it installed in your Android phone.

3. Choose Continue on both Android and iPhone devices. Tap on Agree and then Next on the Android phone.

4. In your iPhone’s version of “Move to iOS” app, you will get a 12-digit code. Enter this code in your Android’s version of this app.

When you enter this code, both the devices establish P2P connection over the Wifi.

After the connection, you will be asked what items you want to transfer from Android to iPhone. Just select the things you need from the list which shows items like bookmarks, messages, contacts, camera roll and others.

5. You will get no problem at all in transferring data from Android to iOS using this free app. But in case you want to transfer data items specifically and individually between the devices, there are some other methods as well. Let’s check them out.

Transferring Contacts Using Gmail Sync

Contacts are the single most important data items you need to transfer from Android to iOS. First, you should backup Android.

Just launch settings in your Android phone and tap on the "Accounts and Sync”. In the latest version, in settings, you will see the option called “Accounts” under the “User and Backup” tab. Just tap it and tap the “Sync” option.

All your contacts will be synced with your Gmail account.

Now launch Settings in iPhone.

Go to Mail >> Contacts, Calendars and add the credentials of your Gmail account.

You will see all the contacts here because they will be brought by the Gmail account via synchronization.

Transferring Apps

You can transfer all the apps from Android to iOS using the first method. But mostly, the apps will not be transferred and you have to get them in your iPhone anew. But the good news is that almost all the apps you use on Android are available in iPhone.

Transferring Photos

To transfer photos from Android to iOS, you should use the apps specially designed from this purpose. I would suggest using the Copy My Data (Android, iOS) app. You should install this app both in your new iPhone and Android. Follow the on-screen instructions and you will find no hurdle in transferring photos between the two devices.

This is how to transfer data from Android to iOS. You can literally move every part of your data, web history and messages to your new phone using the above methods. In case you face any problem in the process, just comment on this post with the problem details and we will get back to you with a solution.
