Compatibility with other Operating Systems, such as Android and Microsoft has always been the issue iPhone users often face. It is a problem for those who are not tech savvy enough to improvise. Everybody must not be one.
An Android user could decide to upgrade to an iPhone, that’s exactly where the problem starts. Obviously, you must have had enough files and transferring hem to an iPhone becomes an issue.
Even if you decided not to transfer files to our new iPhone, you cannot afford to be paying for all music downloaded from the web. It sucks especially when you know well that such music could be downloaded for free using an Android device.
If you have got a NEW iPhone, I will recommend you check out how to migrate from your old Android device to iPhone.
If you have been using your iPhone and wanted to this, there are ways also to do this manually.
The best and easiest way to do this is through iTunes. Install it on your Windows if you don’t have one on it. It should, by default, be on the Mac
Things you will Need
Before making this journey, get the following close to you – your android phone from which the files are being moved, a USB cable (both of Android and of iPhone), a laptop/PC (any of Windows or Mac).
How to transfer
- If you are using Mac for the process, make sure to install Android File Transfer so as it to recognize your Android device.
- Create a folder on the desktop where you will put all the files you will be moving.
- Copy all you want to move such as pictures, videos, music, contacts.
- Connect your iPhone via its USB to the PC.
- Now move the copied files in the folder on the desktop to your iPhone.
If you are using iTunes, after copying your music and videos from your Android, then you just synced the files to your iPhone.
You don’t need to worry about your mail, messages, and calendars. They are stored on Cloud.
Just log in your account in the iPhone, and everything is synced, including your browsing history, and all that your email account has.
