Before we come to the point, I've got some questions for you: Are you an iPhone owners who're planning to change your phone? Has the latest batch of Android phones convinced you to put down your old iPhone? Before saying hello to the Android world, are you confident enough to make a perfect data switch from iOS to Android?
Once making a determined decision to switch from iOS to Android, many long-term iPhone users will be anxious over making the data transfer, but as a matter of fact, they needn't be. You would surprise how easy it is to get off your iPhone data and switch them to your new Android device. In this guide, I'll walk you through how to transfer your data from iOS to Android. As you can see, two different methods are listed below to get this job done.
Here we'll take an example of adding your iPhone contacts to Android. If you have a Google account, your phone will inevitably sync with it and then you'll likely have duplicate contacts, which may lead to a data mess.
- Firstly, launch your email app from your home screen or app drawer of your Android phone.
- Open the email containing your vCard file.
- Tap the download button next to the vCard file to download it.
- Swipe down from the top of your screen to reveal the Notification Shade.
- Tap the completed download notification to open the vCard file.
To transfer your data between two different operation systems, you can use the software like RecoveryTool Phone Transfer. It is a professional helper that can make a perfect switch of your data including contacts, SMS, photos, videos, music, apps and calendars all in once. Install Phone Transfer and follow the guide to learn how to use it.
Step 1: Run Phone Transfer on your PC
After installation, Run it. And you'll see the primary window shown as below. Then click "Start" under the Phone to Phone Transfer.
Step 2: Connect both your devices to PC
Next, get your iPhone and Android phone connected to the same PC. Once the software detects it, set your iPhone as "Source" and your Android phone as "Destination". If they're in wrong places, click "Flip" to change them.
Step 3: Select the files you want to switch
As you can see, there are many contents in the middle column, now you need to choose the expected files and tick the select box, then click "Start Copy". Just few minutes, everything would be well switched from iPhone to Android phone.
The job is done.
