We think you are a little crazy (see our iPhone and Android article to understand why), but we are sure you have found a good reason to switch from iPhone to Google Android smartphone.
In fact, if you are already using Google’s services (Gmail, photos, music, etc.), then switching from iPhone to Android may be very simple. Even if you don’t have a Google account, transferring digital identities from iPhone to Android is relatively easy.
The first thing you want to transfer from iPhone to an Android phone may be your contacts.
Your contact has been linked to your email account. Therefore, you can store your Cotactsin an iCloud or Gmail account (if you are using Gmail). The way to find out is as follows:
- Tap Settings.
- Tap Calendar.
- Tap Default Account.
If your default account is under Gmail, all you need to do is log in to your Android device with your Google account.
If iCloud is used for contacts, it is best to transfer files as vCards (these cards can be shared). You can share each contact card individually. Go to each contact and select the shared connection.
If you have many contacts, you can quickly jump to Apple’s icloud.com website on your Mac and download your connections.
- Open iCloud.com in Safari.
- Open Address Book.
- Click the Gear icon and choose Select All.
- Click the Gear icon and choose Export vCard.
Transfer Mail and Messages from Android to iPhone
Mail is easy to handle. You log in with your Google ID to receive an email in Gmail. Alternatively, you can log in with your iCloud account details or other email address and then read the message.
Sending a message is very difficult. And it’s best not to bother. If you want to preserve an old message, check for an app like AnyTrans.
Transfer photos, music, and media from iPhone to Android
Using the Google Photos iOS application, you can quickly transfer photos from iPhoto to Google Photos.
- Download Google Photos from the App Store on your iPhone.
- Open Google Photos.
- Sign in with your Google Account.
- Choose Backup & Sync. (It’s best to leave ‘Use mobile data to back up’ set as Off unless you have unlimited data.)
- Tap Continue.
Use the Google Music application and install Music Manager for Mac to transfer music. This application (installed in macOS) moves all music in iTunes to Google’s cloud.
Then you can stream all the music from Google Play Music to your Android phone.
