One always faces the trouble in figuring out the shift from an Android to iPhone. But not to worry now as there is an easier way to transfer all your data in just 5 simple steps.
Here’s what you need to do:
STEP 1- SAVE YOUR INFO
Before you go ahead and delete all necessary and unnecessary data from your old phone, create a backup and save it all so that you may have it restored once your new iPhone has been setup.
STEP 2- DOWNLOAD ‘MOVE TO IOS’
Your next step will be to download ‘Move to iOS’ on your Android smartphone from Google Play Store. The app will help transfer all the required data in the blink of an eye. But, don’t start the application just yet.
STEP 3- SETUP THE IPHONE
If this step is still not running in your phone then setup the iPhone by selecting your region, country, time zone, connect to a Wi-Fi Network, etc. Eventually, you will come across the menu reading ‘Apps & Data’ where an option below reading ‘Move Data from Android’ will appear. As you select the option, a code will appear on your screen with 10 digits.
But if your iPhone is already running the process than you will have to erase the setup from your device and go through the entire process once again. For this step, go to Settings, click on General, followed by Reset, and choose the “Erase all content and settings” option.
STEP 4- TRANSFER THE DATA
After receiving the code from your iPhone, now access the ‘Move to iOS application’, as you continue you will be said to fill-in the 10-digit code received earlier on your iPhone. Enter the code and continue.
You will now have the option to choose what data you wish to keep and what not, in your new device: Options will include your Google account, Chrome bookmarks, text messages, contacts, and photos and videos. Pick and select the files you wish to transfer and click ‘Next’. The data is now being transferred to your new iOS device automatically.
STEP 5- TAKE THE SIM/SD CARD OUT
Once the data is transferred, turn off the device and remove the SD/SIM card out. Place it in your new if you have not already done this. However, as your iPhone does not have an SD card slot, this becomes an option for you to either keep it in your old phone or trash it. However, it is advisable to do so at the end, when all your data has been transferred to your new iPhone.
