Switching from Android to iOS can be daunting – you’re not just switching to a new device, you’re switching to an entirely new operating system.
But it turns out that the switch itself actually might be the easiest part.
Back in 2015, Apple introduced one of only two apps it lets Android users download, called Move to iOS (the other app is Apple Music).
Move to iOS is intended to help Android users seamlessly swap to an iPhone without losing their important data, like contacts, photos, calendars, and more.
The app is a key part of making the switch, but there are a few other steps along the way before you can get started with your new iPhone.
Step 1: Back up all your data.
Step 2: Download Google Photos that are on your Android device.
Step 3: On your new iPhone, begin the setup process until you get to the screen that says “Apps & Data.”
Step 4: On your Android phone, download Apple’s Move to iOS app.
Step 5: Start the transfer. This may take a while …
Step 7: Download all your favorite apps onto your iPhone.
