Apple has posted a convenient new how-to guide on the company’s website: “Move content from your Android phone to iPhone.”
Ready to make the switch to iPhone? Here are some tips for moving your photos, music, documents, and more from your Android phone to iPhone. – Apple
With Apple’s all new, 64-bit smartphones, the gorgeous 4.7-inch iPhone 6 and the stunning 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus, there’s never been a better time to stop settling for imitations and make the move to the real thing.
Apple’s new guide covers:
• Mail, Contacts, Calendars: iOS supports several email providers, including Google, Exchange, Yahoo, and more. So you can likely use the same email, contacts, and calendars that you have now.
• Photos and videos: Have lots of photos and videos on your Android phone? You can move them to your iPhone using an app or a computer with iTunes.
• Music: When you switch to iPhone, you can bring your music with you. Just install a streaming music app, or use iTunes to import the music from your Android phone.
• Books and PDFs: iBooks supports the standard ePUB and PDF formats, so you can easily import books that you purchased somewhere other than the iBooks Store. You can also open eBooks that you purchased through other apps.
• Documents: The iOS apps for Numbers, Pages, and Keynote support several file types, including Microsoft Office documents. You can import documents from your Android phone and then edit them on your iPhone. Then you can use iCloud to keep those documents up to date across your devices.
• Apps: You’ll probably find the apps you’re already using on the App Store. Go to the App Store, search for the apps you have now, and install them. Then sign in with your user name and password.
