Today we are discussing how we can transfer data from iPhone to Android.
Switching from an old phone to a brand new android phone can be stressful, and you have a fear of losing data, especially if you’re going from an iPhone to one that runs on the Android version. You have to transfer all your necessary contact numbers, drag your photos and videos to an Android one, and remember passwords to accounts and all running apps.
Switching old iPhone phones with different operating systems makes everything even more of a hassle, but we try to resolve these entire problems.
The good thing while switching to iPhone is that it’s pretty easier and quick to transfer contacts details, photos, and other essential data from old or broken data from iPhone to Android (and vice versa) than it used to be.
If already you have a Google’s services account (Gmail, Photos, Music, and so on), switching from an old iPhone device to an Android device could be remarkably simple and hassle-free. And even if you don’t have a Google account, it’s can be easy to transfer all your identity data from iPhone to an Android device.
How to transfer contacts from iPhone to Android
The priority was that first you want to transfer contact detail from your iPhone to an Android phone.
Your contacts must be linked to your email account. So you may have all of them stored in the part of iCloud or your personal Gmail account (if you’re using a Gmail account). Here’s how to find out:
- Open Settings.
- Then Tap on Calendar.
- Tap on the Default Account setting.
If your default account has access to Gmail, then all you need to step in to sign in to your Android device using your Google personal account.
If you’re using iCloud to store your contacts details, it will be best to transfer your files as vCards (these are contact cards that can be shared). You can share the entire contact card you want individually as much as you can. Go to each contact detail and choose the Share Contact option. You can also use the facility to email the vCard to your Gmail account and then open it when you set up all your setting on an Android device.
How to transfer mail and messages
Moving Mail is very easy to transfer details.
- You sign in with your Google ID to get any emails in Gmail.
- You can also sign in with your iCloud using account credential details or your other email address, and now you can read your mail messages.
Moving Messages is quite difficult to transfer. And it’s probably best not to bother because we are with us. At the same time, you are searching for an app like AnyTrans, a third-party app if you want to preserve any old messages if you wish.
How to transfer Photos, Media and Music
It’s pretty easy to move your snaps from iPhoto to Google Photos using the Google Photos iOS app.
- Download Google Photos from the App Store on your iPhone.
- Open Google Photos.
- Sign in with your Google Account.
- Choose Backup & Sync. (It’s best to leave ‘Use mobile data to back up’ set as Off unless you have unlimited data.
- Tap Continue.
Transfer your music data via Google Music app and by installing Music Manager for Mac on your device. This app (installed in macOS) transfers all your music in iTunes to Google’s cloud; this is a rapid and fast process.
Then you can stream all of your music from Google Play Music on your Android phone.
