> Migrate from Android
Moving from another type of phone to iOS might seem daunting, but there’s an app to help you with that. It’s called “Move to iOS,” and it works with devices running Android 4.0 or later. To find it, simply search for “Move to iOS” on the Google Play Store — just be careful that you choose the app attributed to “Apple Inc” and not one of the third-party alternatives.
Apple’s migration tool saves you a lot of hassle getting information from Android apps into their equivalents on your new iPhone. That’s not all it does, though. The latest version of Move to iOS saves you time by identifying iOS versions of your apps. For those that are free, you’ll be asked during the transfer process whether you want them on your iPhone — you can accept or reject individual apps, so this is a chance to ditch any you no longer use.
As for paid apps, you aren’t asked to buy the iOS versions during transfer. At the time of writing, Apple’s blurb about Move to iOS mentions that paid apps are added to your Wish List in the App Store app. However, iOS 11 removed the Wish List feature, and so far it hasn’t been restored by any update, so you’ll need to investigate replacement apps for yourself.
Ensure that Wi-Fi is switched on and both phones are connected to power. Check that the total amount of information you want to transfer from your Android phone, including any SD card contents, will fit on your iPhone X.
Prepare your iPhone
Turn on your iPhone, and follow the standard setup steps as far as the Apps & Data page. Tap Move Data from Android. If you’ve already set up your iPhone, you can move data manually — see bit.ly/andtoios.
Install Move to iOS
On your Android phone, get Move to iOS from the Google Play Store and open it. Tap Continue, review the terms, then tap Agree, and finally Next. On your iPhone, tap Continue and a code will be displayed; enter this on Android.
Transfer your data
On the Transfer Data page, select items to transfer and tap Next. Ignore Android if it says it’s finished; when the bar on iPhone is done, tap Continue. For any items that fail to transfer, try the manual method mentioned in step 2.
