Apple Posts Guide on Moving Content from Android to iPhone

Posted September 16, 2014 at 9:49pm by iClarified
Ahead of the iPhone 6 launch, Apple has posted an entire support guide on moving your content from your Android phone to your iPhone.

The guide covers setting up mail, contacts and calendar accounts on your iPhone, as well as copying over other files such as music, photos, videos, apps and more. Apple features a couple of different third-party apps to help users copy their data from Android to iPhone including Copy My Data, AT&T Mobile Transfer, Photosync, and Android File Transfer.

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.


The iPhone 6 is shaping up to be a massive upgrade cycle for many customers, so it's not surprising seeing Apple attempting to lure as many customers as possible. Apple already announced record breaking pre-order numbers for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus and supply is already starting to slip.

If it's built like a Mac, looks like a Mac, acts like smack, the max attacks.

I have a iPhone 4S white, 16GB, factory unlocked available for sale. It comes with everything--box included, the original plastic cover is still attached to the phone screen that came with the phone. Contact me!

Nobody wants that old apple phone, don't you know the 6 and 6 plus came out, you better give it away, or just sell it for $100, way too small.

Why nobody wants to buy my old 5s gold 64gb, I paid $1,000 and because the 6 came out nobody wants it, I'm asking $800. Anybody

Lucky you, I'm trying yo sell my iphone 5s gold 16gb, and nobody wants it. I'm asking $450 so I can buy the iphone 6 plus, and everybody is telling why would they buy an iphone 5s if the iphone 6 came out. So now what...

My, my, Samsung has poked fun and woke up the 600lb gorilla. Withhout knowing the true performance benchmark, it would only be fair to say that now Apple has a phone that boasts a screen size the same size Samsung's phablet. For all people that went with Samsung's notes, it is now an issue of curiosity. If the benchmarks tips heavily in favor of Apple, I see Samsung in big, big trouble. It's so fun to be watching the them fight each other. I see a flood of 5/5S on sale on Craigslist, hehehe!

Just in time for 6 because it's greater than s5 and note 4. Plain and simple just like surveys conveyed.

Just don't drop it or go swimming with it, and get used to last year pictures, and put it in your pocket with your keys, and do not jailbreak , cause is not necesary, thanks to apple stealing cydias and android features.

I'm sure it's in hear but the more I look at apple the more I'm starting to crack are we really getting our money's worth? Less then a gig ram on the latest device? Only way to get a half decent battery is to buy a small laptop of a phone? Maybe the droids are getting to me however being apple for a long time if my plus doesn't live upto the task I'll have to start looking elsewhere

What do you do on your iPhone that requires more than 1 gig of ram? Are you facing memory issues? What model iPhone are you using?

Android base on Linux but application mostly using Java, thus it need lots of memory. iOS base on NextSTEP unix like OS and iOS application are develop in Objective C. As what you mention, Java vs C in term of performance is clear, java is slow thus need much higher CPU and lots of memory. Samsung Note 3 have 3GB ram, compare to iphone 5s which only 1GB ram and lower CPU core and clock speed yet when running the same application that appear on both platform Note 3 still lose out to iPhone. For Android and iOS we cant just simply do the bare metal comparison only, application and OS performance count too and this is the major factor affecting user experience.

What about ghz then if we're supposed to believe that, but if you look at the phones completely, none come close to beating iPhone.

And how do I move contents from iphone 5s to my new Galaxy S5 64gb with a 128Gb micro usb and is under water and wireless charging.

Hey genius, it says TO iPhone, not from iPhone, besides my iPhone does the same things galaxy does. Liquipeled my phone and carry a genneo to charge by movement. Saves money on electricity and wireless that also has an sd card accessory.

I have a 5th and I wish someone can show me how to take all my contents to an Android phone (hopefully note4).. Is there quite app or something?

gamerscul9870 - September 17, 2014 at 9:43am
I doubt there is anything. It needs to make a way now that apple made a path for helping users switch.

Thank god I can finally transfer my angry birds data. Even apple is smart to help users prepare a change. Time to finally sell the tablet no one really cared about since my dad randomly got awarded it with the main prize (tickets).
