From iPhone to Android

How not to lose your previous data when you switch from iPhone to Android?

Switching from iOS to Android shouldn’t cause you any pain if you know what to do. 

Now you can use Google to seamlessly transfer your contacts, calendars, photos, etc. from your iOS to your new Android device. 

There’s no need to connect your iOS device to your computer and go through a series of steps to do this. Google has already simplified the process for iOS users to transfer all their precious data to their Android phones with only a few simple steps. All you need is a Google Drive account installed on your iPhone and a Gmail account — and that’s it! You are good to go. 

Here’s a step-by-step guide to follow:

1. Install Google Drive on your iPhone.

2. Then, open the App Store and ensure it’s up to date.

3. Launch Google Drive.

4. Tap on the Menu button.

5. Select Settings.

6. Select Backup.

7. Tap on each backup category to disable or tailor the data that’s being backed up. For example, for Google Photos you can select the backup quality.

8. Finally, tap on Start Backup.

Be sure you have a stable WiFi connection before you start this process. Also, leave the app open and your screen on. The backup may take a while depending on the number of photos and videos you have, especially if you backup in original quality. 

When you’re ready to set up your Android device, just sign into the same Gmail account you used in the Google Drive app on your iPhone. You will find your contacts in the Contacts app sorted into a group labelled with your iPhone’s name, as will your calendar entries. Whilst photos will be in the Google Photos app.
