Although they could be enticed, many users are scared to take the radical step of altering their cell phone and operating system… what about the photos, the audio collection, and the contacts? The process of transferring from iOS into Android or vice versa and migrating all of the data can be cumbersome, but not impossible. So there is no reason to stay”stuck” in the network of Apple products or Google: here we tell you how you can make the jump without despair in the attempt.
If you don’t want 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, photographs, and videos through a Wi-Fi link, so you do not have to connect your phone to a computer.
You just have to download the app on both phones; Android and iPhone and follow the instructions.
During the configuration process, when you include the email accounts you wish to your new iPhone or iPad, you could also decide to incorporate the data associated with each email account, be it contacts, calendars or notes.
On the other hand, if you keep your contacts and calendars in an account of a social network 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 app you want and activate in the calendar and contacts settings. According to statistics from July 2015, Apple sold 47.5 million of the iPhone in the quarter which ended in June, 35 percent over last year. But iPad demand continued to decrease, 18 percent less than the previous year. Moreover, if you create an account in iCloud, together with your Apple ID, you can also import the contacts that you have listed in the vcard document and keep them stored in the cloud.
To do this from your computer go to http://www.icloud.com, input your Apple account and click on”Contacts”. Click on the icon on the bottom left that looks like a little wheel and indicate”Import vCard” in the menu.
When you turn in your new iPhone, the setup wizard can allow you to activate iCloud on your cell phone. If you skipped this step in the configuration procedure you can activate it manually by going to Settings or Settings> iCloud. With iCloud, you may also access from your 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 own Android phone you’ll need to move them to a new iPhone or iPad using an app or a computer with iTunes. You’ll find various data transfer programs in the Apple App Store and in the Google Play store based on your country.
In addition to the general data migration applications mentioned previously, there are also other specific ones for photographs, such as PhotoSync. Alternatively, you can transfer your pictures to iTunes using a Mac or PC computer. For this, you’ll have to first pass your pictures from your Android phone to your computer and then synchronize them with iTunes.
