Moving from Android to iOS is easy. Here’s how to transfer your contacts, messages, photos, and more! Before you start, your Android device should have Wi-Fi turned on, and both your devices should be plugged into power.
If you haven’t already, make sure you download the Move to iOS app on your Android device. You should also double-check that you have enough space on your iPhone for the content you’re transferring from your Android device.
It’s best not to finish setting 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. All right! Let’s get started.
First, follow the on screen instructions on your iPhone to start setting it up. When you get to the Apps & Data screen, tap Move Data from Android. Next, on your Android device, open the Move to iOS app 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. On your iPhone, tap Continue on the Move from Android screen.
If a notification appears on your Android device that you have a weak Internet signal, feel free to ignore it. Enter the code that appeared on your iPhone on your Android device. Then 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. You’ll need to transfer music, books, and PDFs manually.
Some apps that are free and available in your region on both Google Play and the App Store will download automatically on your iPhone. Now tap Next. Even if your Android device says the process is complete.
leave both your devices alone until the loading bar on your iPhone completes. Depending on how much you’re moving, this process can take a little while. Wait for the loading bar on your iPhone to finish.
Then tap Done on your Android device and follow the on screen steps to finish setup. And that’s it. Now your content should be transferred. To learn more about your iPhone, from setup to helpful features.
