Preparing phones

First step — find out how much mem­o­ry on the iPhone is occu­pied by all the data. To do this, go to “Set­tings” — “Gen­er­al” — “Stor­age / Device”.

Sec­ond step — you need to check if there is enough mem­o­ry on the new device. You need to go to “Set­tings” — “About phone”. Fur­ther in the “Stor­age” block, the amount of avail­able mem­o­ry will be imme­di­ate­ly vis­i­ble.

There should be a lit­tle more free mem­o­ry on the new phone, so that it is def­i­nite­ly enough for the trans­fer.

Third step Both gad­gets need to be ful­ly charged.

Fourth step — you need to make sure that they can be con­nect­ed to Wi-Fi and via a USB cable to a com­put­er.

If you need to trans­fer brows­er data from iPhone to Android, then update it on both devices to the lat­est ver­sion.

If both phones are charged and work­ing with­out fail­ures, then you can trans­fer data very quick­ly. Illus­tra­tion: appleinsider.ru

A quick way to transfer data from an old iPhone (iPhone)

This method is the fastest and eas­i­est. If you need to trans­fer data from iPhone to Android, you can use a spe­cial appli­ca­tion, a file man­ag­er. For exam­ple, SHARE­it. One ver­sion of it needs to be installed on the iPhone, the sec­ond on Android.

  • On the iPhone, select Trans­fer Files. On Android — “Get Files”.
  • Next, you need to select all the files that you plan to trans­fer to a new device.
  • With the help of an iPhone, a QR code is scanned at the receiv­ing device.
  • This will start the file trans­fer process.
One device (smart­phone or PC) must have a QR code. And with the help of anoth­er device, it needs to be scanned. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

This appli­ca­tion can only trans­fer the fol­low­ing files:

  • gifs;
  • Pho­to and video;
  • music;
  • wall­pa­per.

Oth­er appli­ca­tions for trans­fer­ring files work sim­i­lar­ly. For exam­ple, Zapya. Through it you can trans­fer pho­tos, videos, music.

How to transfer data from iPhone 6 (and older) using Google

Google Dri­ve is anoth­er option to trans­fer files and data.

If Google Drive has already been installed

If a per­son used Google Dri­ve on an iPhone, he can use this method:

  • first make sure that all doc­u­ments, spread­sheets, pre­sen­ta­tions, pho­tos and videos are uploaded to Google dri­ve. If some­thing is miss­ing, you can click on the “+” at the bot­tom of the screen, select “Upload” and add all the miss­ing files;
  • go to “Set­tings”;
  • select “Back­up”. Using this method, you can trans­fer Google cal­en­dar, Google con­tacts (not from the usu­al phone book) and pho­tos, videos, pre­sen­ta­tions, doc­u­ments, spread­sheets;

  • when copy­ing is com­plet­ed, you need to go from Android to Google Dri­ve;
  • after syn­chro­niza­tion, every­thing that was on Google Dri­ve will be avail­able on the new phone. Files can be down­loaded to a new device or left in the e‑cloud.

If you haven’t installed Google Drive before

How to trans­fer data from iPhone to Android (Xiao­mi, Sam­sung, Hon­or, etc.)? This method will help you trans­fer pho­tos, videos, pre­sen­ta­tions, doc­u­ments, spread­sheets that are on your iPhone. Cal­en­dar and Google con­tacts are not trans­ferred this way.

  • Step one is to install Google Dri­ve from App Store on iPhone.
  • Next, you need to log into your account, select “Menu” — “Set­tings”.
  • After log­ging into your account, you need to upload all impor­tant files to Google Dri­ve through the “+” at the bot­tom of the screen. They can be divid­ed into fold­ers so as not to lose any­thing.

After that, just enter your Google Dri­ve from Android and down­load all the files to a new device.

How to upload only photos and videos

This is the eas­i­est option.

  • You need to down­load the Google Pho­tos app on both smart­phones.
  • As soon as it is installed on the iPhone and the per­son logs into their Google account, it will imme­di­ate­ly offer to make a copy of the files.

If this does not hap­pen, you need:

  • go to the Menu (click on the cir­cle with the avatar);
  • select “Appli­ca­tion set­tings”;
  • select “Start­up and sync”;
  • enable autoload (impor­tant: when the appli­ca­tion is installed, it will ask if the own­er of the device gives access to files on the device. Per­mis­sion must be giv­en, oth­er­wise the appli­ca­tion will not be able to access the con­tent).

How to transfer data from iPhone to Android via PC or laptop using Wondershare MobileTrans

This is a pop­u­lar desk­top appli­ca­tion that will help you trans­fer infor­ma­tion from your old iPhone to Android.

Down­load­ing the appli­ca­tion on a PC is easy. There are hints for the user. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

There are oth­er pos­si­bil­i­ties:

  • trans­fer­ring infor­ma­tion from a smart­phone to a PC;
  • data trans­fer from PC to phone;
  • iTunes data recov­ery;
  • what­sapp data trans­fer.
The paid ver­sion of the app has even more fea­tures avail­able. Illus­tra­tion: Eliza­ve­ta Chupiko­va, Photostore.Expert

There are 2 ver­sions:

  • free — trans­fer of the phone book, images, music and oth­er data from one smart­phone to anoth­er in one click is avail­able, back­up;
  • paid — for $ 40 you can buy the max­i­mum ver­sion for a year, in which all func­tions are avail­able. Every­thing that is in the free + data trans­fer of instant mes­sen­gers (What­sApp, WeChat, Viber, Kik), iTunes back­up.

If you only need to trans­fer What­sapp data from iPhone to Android, you can use a cheap­er tar­iff, which includes only the trans­fer of all data from mes­sen­gers. It costs $30 for a year of use.

What hap­pens if you just rein­stall What­sApp on a new device and log into your account? If there are no con­tacts in the phone book, then only group chats (no his­to­ry) will be saved. And all cor­re­spon­dence will be delet­ed, as well as media files.

But even if there are phone num­bers, then it will not be pos­si­ble to trans­fer all the data in all cas­es. Trans­fer­ring chat his­to­ry to anoth­er plat­form is cur­rent­ly only avail­able when switch­ing from an iPhone to a Sam­sung Android device.

To trans­fer data, you need to make a back­up (“Menu” — “Set­tings” — “Chats” — “Back­up copy of chats”). When log­ging in from a new device, you will need to down­load a back­up saved in the cloud stor­age.

Transfer contacts

If there are few con­tacts in the phone book, then some­times it is eas­i­er to trans­fer them man­u­al­ly — just rewrite the num­bers. But if there is no time or desire for this, or there are too many num­bers, you can use one of these meth­ods.

There are sev­er­al ways to trans­fer con­tacts. Illus­tra­tion: apple-iphone.ru

  • you need to click on it;
  • after that, a new menu will open on the left, in which you need to select the “details” item, check the box “Syn­chro­nize con­tacts with: Google Con­tacts”;
  • then you need to go down to the end of the page, make sure that “Con­tacts” is ticked and click “Apply”, wait until all the data is trans­ferred.
  • Sign in to your Google account on your new device. All con­tacts should auto­mat­i­cal­ly pull into it.
