How to Switch from Android Phone to IOS Phone (iPhone)

How to Switch from Android Phone to IOS Phone (iPhone) – You’ve made the decision that it’s finally time to upgrade to an iPhone. Maybe it’s the $399 iPhone SE’s value for money. Perhaps you care more about privacy, or you’re sick of buying phones that only get OS system updates every year or two. Perhaps you own a Mac and want a phone that is compatible with it.

Whatever the case may be, we’re here to make the switch from Android to iPhone as painless as possible. Let’s make the switch between your old Android phone and your new iPhone.

Using the Move to iOS app, you may transfer data from Android to iOS.

Apple has a nice marketing page that explains why switching from Android to iPhone is a good idea. Although it’s more hoopla than practical advice, Apple does provide a useful tool for making the switch: an Android app!

Download the Move to iOS app from the Google Play store on your old Android phone. Make sure your Wi-Fi is turned on and then open the app.

Start setting up your new iPhone only after you’ve downloaded the Move to iOS app. You’ll see a list of alternatives for restoring your apps and data during setup. Move Data from Android is the option to choose.

Android IOS data transfer

The data from your Android phone is transferred to your iPhone during the first setup process.

You can always wipe your iPhone and start over if you’ve previously set it up. It might be worth your time if you just set it up now.

You’ll see a string of numbers on your iPhone (six or ten numbers) that you’ll be requested to enter on your Android phone as you progress through the procedure. Your Android phone may complain about a weak Wi-Fi signal at some point during this process, but ignore it; it’s a side effect of your Android phone connecting directly to your iPhone through Wi-Fi.

You’ll then be able to choose the stuff from your Android phone to move to your iPhone. Choose what you want and then press Next.

Depending on the functionality of your previous Android phone and the amount of data you need to transfer, the entire procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. A YouTube video from Apple Support shows the method.

Connect your iPhone to your Google account.

If you utilize the Move to iOS app, your Google account will most likely already be connected to your iPhone. You’ll have to add it yourself if you didn’t transfer your Google account during that process, or if you didn’t utilize the Move to iOS app (which may be fussy at times, and some users have problems getting it to operate properly).

It’s simple! Tap Settings, then Mail, on your iPhone. Tap Accounts, Add Account, and then Google from the drop-down menu. Your iPhone will launch a Google login page, prompting you to enter your account name and password.

Sync your mail, notes, calendar, and contacts with your Google account.

Once your account has been added, you may choose whether or not to sync your Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and Notes by selecting it from the Accounts list. These toggles will import data from your Google account into the iOS Mail, Contacts, Calendar, and Notes applications, but you may disable them if you want to use Google’s apps on your iPhone instead of Apple’s.

Takeout.google.com allows you to download a copy of your data from Google cloud services. That’s where you’d start if you wanted to download a copy of all your images and videos from Google Photos so you could upload them to iCloud again.

Take advantage of Google apps on your iPhone.

Google has a large number of iPhone apps. Moving to iOS doesn’t mean you have to give up your beloved Google apps; it just means they won’t work as well as they did on your Android device. You can’t make them your default program—for example, when you open a message link, it will launch Apple’s Mail app rather than the Gmail app.

You should download Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Photos, and Google Maps in particular. If you want to keep as many Google apps as possible on Android, the Google app will provide you with the search and Discover feed you’re used to, Google Assistant will replace Siri (though you’ll have to start the app to use it), and Chrome will make your browser feel more familiar.

Third-party apps like Spotify, Twitter, Instagram, and Netflix, for example, are all available on iPhone and look and perform similarly to their Android counterparts. All you have to do now is log in with your account and all of your material should appear. Remember to schedule time for things like downloading music or watching movies that you want to watch later.

If you don’t want to lose your progress in any of your games, be sure they provide a way to save your progress online. Many popular games allow you to check-in using either your Facebook account or a game-specific account, and your progress will be saved. When you re-download the game on your iPhone, just make sure you use the same account.

Do not attempt to convert iOS to Android.

It’s simple to link your Google account to your iPhone and download Google apps instead of Apple’s, but we don’t recommend going overboard straight away.

Try using Siri instead of Assistant, Safari instead of Chrome, Apple Maps instead of Google Maps, and Apple Photos instead of Google Photos for a bit after moving your data and logging into your Google account.

It will seem strange at first, and there will be a lot of small aspects to adjust to. Apple’s apps, on the other hand, are more tightly linked with the operating system, much like Google’s apps are on most Android phones, and they’re constructed with better privacy protections in general. After a few weeks of adjusting, you might realize that you prefer Apple’s apps, at least in some areas.
