Preparations Before Transferring Data from Android to New iPhone

Before you start transferring any data from your Android to a new iPhone, there are some preparatory steps that you need to follow to ensure a smooth transition between your old and new mobile phones. These steps are explained below:

1. Plug in Your iPhone and Android or Fully Charge Them

Before transferring data from Android to iPhone, the first step is to charge both phones or plug them in fully. This is due to the fact that your phones will rapidly drain their batteries during this process.

2. Backup Your Android

Then, ensure that your Android phone is backed up and ready to go in case you need to use it again. That way, you won't lose any data when upgrading to your new iPhone.

3. Update iOS and Android

After that, you need to ensure that your new iPhone and Android are updated to the latest operating system version.

4. Turn off 2-Factor Authentication

The last main thing you need to do to prepare for transferring data is to turn off your 2-factor authentications. This ensures that you experience a smooth data transfer between your devices.

How to Transfer Data from Android to New iPhone via Move to iOS

Move to iOS is an app developed by Apple for Android users like you that makes it very simple to transfer your existing smartphone data to an iPhone. This is one of the simplest ways to transfer your data. You only need to follow the steps listed below to use this method.

Step 1. You need to add all the required details until you reach the page that prompts you to either set up your iPhone X from scratch or import data from existing sources. There, click on Move from Android.

Once you buy your new iPhone, the first thing you need to do before you can transfer any data is to set it up. So that is going to be your first priority.

Step 2. Next, you have to install the Move to iOS app on your Android phone if you don't have it installed. You can easily get this app from the Google Play Store. You can let it download and install while you set up your new iPhone.

Step 3. To ensure smooth data transfer, connect both phones to the same Wi-Fi or internet connection.

Step 4. On the Move to iOS app, you'll get a code (usually 6-digit) that you need to input in the corresponding space on the Move from Android page on your new iPhone.

Enter code

Step 5. The next item on the agenda is to actually select the data you wish to transfer to your new iPhone. You can transfer contacts to your new iPhone, and it also supports messages, photos, videos, and many other types of data.

Step 6. After selecting the wanted data, hit the transfer button and wait for the process to complete. It might take some time, depending on the size of the data you want to transfer.

Step 7. Once the data has completely been transferred, look at your iPhone to ensure nothing was left behind during the process.

How to Transfer Data from Android to New iPhone via Google Account

If you don't want to use Move to iOS to transfer your data to your new iPhone, there are other options for you. For example, you can use your Google Account to transfer your data to your new phone. Here are the steps you need to follow for this purpose.

Step 1. Tap on the Settings icon, and navigate to "Passwords & Accounts." Select "Add Account" and add your Google account to your iPhone.

How to Transfer Data from Android to New iPhone via Google Drive Folder

Step 1. The first step in this method is to open the Google Drive app on your Android and create a new folder there. In this folder, upload all the data that you wish to transfer to your new iPhone.

Step 2. Now, download and install the Google Drive app from the App Store on your new iPhone and log in with your credentials.
