Ready to move to iPhone from an Android device? Here’s how to transfer your contacts, messages, photos, and more. To do this, you’ll need Android version 4.0 or later, and an iPhone 5 or later running iOS 9 or later.
How to Switch from Android to Apple iOS
Before you start, plug your devices into power and turn them on. On your Android device, check to see that Wi-Fi is turned on, and turn off cellular data. You should make sure that the amount of data you want to transfer will fit on your new iPhone. You’ll also need to download the Move to iOS app from the Google Play store on your Android device. It’s best not to set up your iPhone before you begin this process. If you’ve already set it up, you’ll need to erase it and start over. If you don’t want to erase it, you can move your content over manually.
Since transferring your data can take a while and you can’t use the devices while it’s in process, you might want to do it overnight.
All right! Let’s get started
First, follow the onscreen instructions on your iPhone to start setting it up. When you get to the Apps & Data screen, tap Move Data from Android. Now, open the Move to iOS app on your Android device and tap Continue. If you agree to the Terms and Conditions, tap Agree. Then tap Next in the top-right corner of the Find Your Code screen. Now in your iPhone, tap Continue on the screen called Move from Android. Then wait for a ten-digit or six-digit code to appear. If your Android device shows an alert that you have a weak internet connection, you can ignore this. Now enter the code on your Android device and wait for the Transfer Data screen to appear.
Next, select the content that you want to transfer. You can move contacts and message history, photos and videos, and mail accounts and calendars. Some of your apps will download automatically on your iPhone if they’re free and available in your region on both Google Play and the App Store. After you’ve made your selections tap Next. Now, wait for the loading bar on your iPhone to finish, then tap Done on your Android device.
The whole transfer can take a little time, depending on how much content you’re moving to. Now tap Continue Setting Up iPhone on your iPhone, and follow the onscreen steps to finish that up. Once it’s complete, check to see if your content transferred. Music, books, and PDFs will need to be moved over manually. If you want to get any more apps, go to the App Store to download them.
And that’s it!
