Although they may be enticed, many users are afraid to take the radical step of changing their mobile phone and operating system… what about the photographs, the audio collection, and the contacts? The process of transferring from iOS to Android or vice versa and migrating all of the data can be awkward, but not impossible. So there isn’t any reason to remain”stuck” in the community of Apple products or Google: here we tell you how to make the jump without grief in the attempt. In this installment, we cover the steps to move in the Android system to the iOS.

Use a Migration App
If you don’t need to do the process of transferring your information step by step, you may use the help of a migration app, such as the free Copy My Info or AT&T Mobile Transfer, even though the available applications vary from one nation to another. This type of program transfers your contacts, calendars, photos, and videos via a Wi-Fi link, so you do not need to connect your phone to a computer.

You only need to download the app on both phones; Android and iPhone and follow the instructions.

How to Transfer Your Contacts and other Records
During the setup process, when you include the email accounts you want to your new iPhone or iPad, you could also decide to include the data related to each email account, be it contacts, calendars or notes.

On the other hand, if you store your contacts and calendars in an account of a social networking like facebook, Twitter or Weibo, you may use the programs of those exact networks to transfer them to your new iPhone.

To do this you need to log in from your mobile phone in the particular program you want and activate in the calendar and contacts preferences. According to data from July 2015, Apple sold 47.5 million of the iPhone in the quarter which ended in June, 35% more than last year. However, iPad demand continued to decline, 18 percent less than the prior year. Moreover, if you create an account in iCloud, using your Apple ID, you may even import the contacts that you have recorded in the vcard document and keep them stored in the cloud.

Click on the icon on the bottom left that looks like a little wheel and mark”Import vCard” from the menu.

When you turn in your new iPhone, the setup wizard will allow you to activate iCloud on your mobile phone. If you skipped that step in the configuration process you may trigger it manually by going to Settings or Settings> iCloud. With iCloud, you may also access from the iPhone any Word, Excel or PowerPoint document that you have stored in the cloud.

How to Transfer Your Photos
In order not to lose the photographs and videos of your Android phone you’ll have to move them to a new iPhone or iPad using an app or a computer with iTunes. You will see several data transfer programs in the Apple App Store and at the Google Play store based on your country.

In addition to the overall data migration applications mentioned previously, there are additional specific ones for photos, such as PhotoSync. Alternatively, you can move your pictures to iTunes with a Mac or PC computer. For this, you’ll need to first pass your images from your own Android phone to your computer and then synchronize them with iTunes.

Uses for irons

Uses for irons

Iron, House Work, Budget, Smoothing

Do you have an iron? Most of us do. Do you have your clothes ironed at a laundry? Not a huge deal. The iron at your home can still find various uses to prove its value. Read on and you will find that you have been missing out on lots of these. You may even gain a bit more respect for the iron kept at your dwelling.

Here are the 7 most unique uses of an iron that you’ve never considered.

1.

Barbecues need time to get heated up and ready for grilling. An iron can function as an emergency grill while you’re craving a delightful grilled sandwich. It’s DIY and too easy. Ready up your sandwich and wrap it up in square shaped aluminum foil on the top and bottom. Keep the hot iron onto your sandwich for about 10 minutes. Then, flip over the sandwich and set the iron on the other side for another 10. You’ve just grilled yourself a yummy sandwich.

2. The Plastic Sealer

You might at some stage must seal polythene or plastic bags for various reasons. You might want to laminate some valuable papers. You may even need to pack some of your stuff in a plastic bag. Whatever be the case, an iron can help. Cover the end of plastic you wish to seal with foil, and work the iron carefully over the foil only. The plastic melts with heat and becomes sealed. You can remove the foil afterwards.

3. Wallpaper Remover

Wallpapers look great on walls. What about the stubborn pieces of paper left once you remove wallpaper? That is too ugly. Your fabric iron can help you get rid of this. Let’s learn how. Set your iron to steam mode and heat it up. Keep this hot iron in a slight distance from the wall. This creates soggy conditions around the newspaper. The heat from the steam loosens up the glue, and the moisture eliminates the stubbornness of paper.

4. Cleaning up a Wax Mess

So you had a excellent candle lit dinner or just a gorgeous candle night. Check your surroundings. You could just have spilled a few drops of wax which refused to not stick. The way to eliminate this wax stain with your iron, once again coming to the rescue. Cover the stain with foil and put the heated iron over it. Wax cleaning does not get simpler than this.

5. Dent Free Your Flooring

After spending a fortune on the most expensive and attractive wood floors in your house, you don’t need to see dents left by foot traffic, accidents, or even furniture. What is the solution? Cover up the dented place with foil and run your iron . The dent will vanish, and you are done fixing your floor.

6. Eliminate Water Stains on Wood

Water is the enemy of wooden crafts. Water can sometimes leave a very unpleasant mark on our wooden furniture, floors, and other wooden materials. Your cloth iron, again, gets some work there. Cover up the water stain in your wood with a cloth and run the iron over it at the lowest temperatures. The warmth the iron transfers to the wood makes it moisture free.

7. Preserve Flowers

Flowers are gorgeous. They can also be a token of love. So when you receive that love in the form of bouquets, you may want to preserve not just the feeling of affection but the physical token you have been given. Would you believe me if I said an iron could do that too? Keep your flowers between a couple of pieces of wax paper and place some weight on it. After some time, put a paper towel on it and run the dry iron over it. The blossoms are safe for a long time now.
