Move to iOS from Android [All-Around Guidance]

Myra updated on Aug 29, 2023 | Home > Mobile Transfer

iPhone 15 is coming out this September, which has raised many Android users' desire to change their phones to iOS due to the new features and add-ons within the coming iPhone. However, a troublesome problem awaits you: How to Move to iOS from Android. Don't worry. We've got your back. Whether you want to transfer all your data from Android to iPhone or just certain types of files, you can find the solutions you want.

Before You Switch from Android to iPhone

🆙Update all apps and back up Android.

Considering that some apps work well with Android but maybe not with the iOS system, you need to update all your apps to the latest to reduce the likelihood of adaptability problems appearing. Also, to prevent data loss during the transfer procedure, you'd better have a backup of your old Android.

🆕Keep Android accessories relying on Bluetooth.

As you abandon Android, consider what you can't take with you. Your phone case won't be compatible with your new iPhone, and your desktop dock may not be either, but there's a good chance that any Android accessories relying on Bluetooth should work fine with your new iPhone. What's more, most speaker accessories and docks have iPhone compatibility as standard, so you can still use them as usual. Even wired headphones can work with the iPhone 13/14, though you need to buy a Lightning-to-3.5mm adapter.
