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.
