Move all your files from iOS to Android in 3 easy steps. Here’s How

4 min read

People find it very hard to switch from one OS to another because of how incompatible these platforms are.  A clear example is iOS and Android. How would someone who is so used to iOS switch to Android with ease and transfer all their data and files from the former to the latter?

Not to worry at all Google with the help of its Google Drive will help new Android users to transfer all there data from their iPhone’s to Android Nougat with just a few clicks.

Getting people to leave behind their iPhones and move to Android is something Google has focused on more heavily in recent months.

The recently outdoored Google Pixel and Pixel XL has a ‘Quick Switch’ feature that enables this transfer. This tool turns Google Drive into a useful utility for backing up data to Google’s cloud before switching devices.

The files from your iOS will be backed up to Google Contacts, Google Calendar, and Google Photos connected to your Google account you created and signed in with.

Instructions Follow Carefully 

Transfer your stuff from iOS in 3 easy steps.

Step 1:

First, download Google Drive to your iOS device and sign in with your Google account. If you don’t have a Google account, you can create one now or when you sign in to Google Drive.

If you already have Google Drive installed, make sure to update to the latest version.



Step 2 :

Back up your content

Once you’re in Google Drive, open the backup wizard by selecting Menu > Settings > Backup. Choose the content that you want to back up, or simply back up everything by clicking “Start Backup”.

Backing up may take several hours, so we recommend you connect your device to power and Wi-Fi.

Step 3:

Sign in on your Android device

Sign in to your Google account on your new Android device. Make sure to use the same account that you used to back up your iPhone.

Don’t forget to turn off iMessage. Learn more.

Apple has also released an Android utility called “Move to iOS” which performs this same process in reverse.
