Getting a new device can always be an exciting time unless you’re deciding to jump ships from one OS to another. In which case it can be somewhat of a real downer trying to copy all your data from your old one to the new as there’s not exactly a direct method you can use. However, there’s no need to panic as there are often workarounds that you can employ, some of which we will discuss here in our tutorial which essentially will teach you how to copy data from iPhone to Android with ease.
How to Copy Data from iPhone to Android
- It’s always a great idea to use a third party software which will essentially do all the heavy lifting for you. One great software for that purpose is known as Mobile Trans. However, the software itself isn’t free but it does come with a functional trial version which can come in handy if you only have to do the data transfer once or twice.
- Another way to transfer your data is through the usage of any cloud storage of your choice (but we will recommend you use iCloud as it’s easier to access on an iPhone). Though you will need a fast internet connection for that purpose and let’s face it, it can get a bit hectic if you have a large amount of data you want to move.
- The easiest way to copy data from iPhone to Android is with the help of a PC or a Mac. Just pop in your iPhone, open up iTunes and sync all media content from your phone to the PC. Then just upload all of your contacts and calendar appointments onto iCloud. Now you can simply connect your Android and copy all the media content while downloading everything else from iCloud to your Android phone. If you have some trouble syncing up your contacts, do remember that iTunes has a built in function to export all your contacts to your Gmail account which in a way is almost similar to copying your contacts manually to your phone.
So, if you want to copy data from iPhone to Android, you can just follow any one of these simple procedures and you’ll be good to go. If not, you can always use third party cross-platform apps for that purpose as well.
