Move Data from Android Phone to New iPhone
If you’re interested in learning how to move data from Android to iPhone, continue reading this post.
Method 1. Using “Move to iOS” app
Are you ready to make the switch to iOS? To help you transfer from your Android device to your new iPhone download the “Move to iOS” app on your android phone from the Google play store.
Before transferring data make sure your both phones are plugged into power and are connected to WiFi.
Step1. On your iPhone, while you set up your new iOS device, look for the Apps & Data screen. Then tap Move Data from Android. (If you already completed the setup, you need to reset your iOS device and start over. If you don’t want to reset, just transfer your content manually or you have another option “Anytrans” explained in the second method.)
Step 2. On your Android device, open the Move to iOS app and tap Continue. Read the terms and conditions that appear. To proceed, tap Agree, then tap Next in the top-right corner of the Find Your Code screen.
Step 3. On your iPhone, tap Continue on the screen called Move from Android. Then wait for a ten-digit or six-digit code to appear. If your Android device shows an alert that you have a weak Internet connection, you can ignore the alert.
Step4. Enter the code on your Android device. Then wait for the Transfer Data screen to appear.
Step5. On your Android device, select the content that you want to transfer and tap Next. Then — even if your Android indicates that the process is complete — leave both devices alone until the loading bar that appears on your iOS device finishes. The whole transfer can take a while, depending on how much content you’re moving.
Here’s what gets transferred: contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, and calendars. If they’re available on both Google Play and the App Store, some of your free apps will also transfer. After the transfer completes, you can download any free apps that were matched from the App Store.
Step6. After the loading bar finishes on your iOS device, tap Done on your Android device. Then tap Continue on your iOS device and follow the onscreen steps to finish setup for your iOS device.
Some drawbacks about this method
- It does not trasfer whatsapp chats, songs saved in phone memory, ringtones.
- Transfer speed is slow and the transfer process is likely to be interrupted for unknown reasons.
- Only works when setting up an iPhone for the first time—it’s not for transfers to an already operating iPhone or you need to reset your iPhone.
But don’t worry we have got your back. Read the second method.

Method 1. Using “Apple Quick Start”
Quick Start allows you to quickly set up a new iOS or iPadOS device using information from your existing device. The rest of your data and content can then be restored from your iCloud backup to your new device.
Step1. Turn on your new device and place it next to your old one. The “Quick Start” screen opens on your current device and allows you to set up your new device with your Apple ID. Make sure you’re using the Apple ID you want, then press Continue. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on if you don’t see the option to continue on your current device.
Step2. On your new device, wait for an animation to appear. Place your old device on top of the new one, then position the animation in the viewfinder. Wait for the message “Finish on New [Device]” to appear. If you can’t use the camera on your current device, tap Authenticate Manually and then follow the on-screen instructions.
Step3. When prompted, enter the passcode for your current device on your new device.
Step4. Follow the instructions to set up Face ID or Touch ID on your new device.
Step5. Tap Transfer from [Device] to begin transferring your data from your previous iPhone or iPad to your new device.
Few weak points about this method:
Only works if setting up a new iPhone or users need to erase and reset first if it is an already operating iPhone.
Can’t transfer non purchased music
Only selected items can be transferred.
To overcome these issues try another method using Anytrans described below.
Method 2. Using Anytrans
AnyTrans is the most efficient and capable method for migrating all of your desired data to your new iPhone, regardless of where it is stored. Not only can you restore data from an iTunes or iCloud backup, but you can also transfer data directly from an iPhone or iPad. You can transfer images from iCloud, contacts from previous iPhone, videos from iPad, and messages from iTunes backup all at once because the migration does not wipe any existing data on the new iPhone.
One of the best features I liked about Anytrans is you can transfer Whatsapp chats to anywhere you want. AnyTrans keeps your whole chat history as well as all attachments within reach since your WhatsApp discussions are too valuable to lose. It’s as simple as clicking a button to move them to a new iPhone or generate a backup on your computer in case of an accident.
Before you start this process make sure you have iTunes installed on your Windows PC.
Step1. Open Anytrans on your PC. Click on Phone Switcher
Step2. Click on Apps to iPhone. Connect your old iPhone with a USB cable and it will show on the screen.
Step3. Connect your new iPhone with a USB cable and you are ready to transfer data.
Did you see how easy it was? If you are not satisfied with tools provided by Apple for transferring data or iPhone management then you must give Anytrans a try.
