Android has announced support for the ‘Switch to the Android app on iOS Wednesday, which will now be available to all users upgrading from iOS to phones with Android 12. The app is designed to make the transition from iPhone to Android easier. Android’s switch to Android” is a welcome sight for former Apple fans who have switched to Google’s mobile operating system, especially since Apple launched the “Move to iOS” app in 2015 for Android to iPhone switchers. .
Google app launched the ‘Switch to the Android app’ at the end of April. If you wanted to move your data from iPhone to Android, it was a more tedious task before this app. You’ll need to go to a “Switch to Android” webpage, back up your data to a computer, and then move it to Google Drive.
The app helps move important information from your iPhone to your Android. You can connect your iPhone to Android via cable or Wi-Fi, then follow their setup instructions for seamless data transfer. And you don’t have to worry about your data disappearing from your old phone, the transfer only makes a copy of your data.
According to the Android website, the data that will move from iPhone to Android over the cable includes: contacts, photos and videos (which are stored locally on your phone, not iCloud), messages, wallpapers (custom photos only), music (all DRM-free, non-iTunes music), plus call logs, alarms, and device settings.
If everything on your iPhone is backed up to iCloud, the process may take longer. When the Android app was found originally not listed in the iOS app store, one of Gizmodo’s reporters tested it. The final step was to sign in to your Apple ID to copy your photos and videos from iCloud, and also involves sending a request to Apple for a copy of all your data. The benefits of switching to Android and using that app may outweigh that inconvenience of waiting for your data to transfer, like Android did. features that many people love.
