When you decide to buy a new smartphone, there is a chance that you will have to break your head not only over which model to choose, but also because of how to transfer applications and everything acquired and downloaded from one device to another.

There are smartphones that come with software and cables to move data. Transferring them from such devices can be difficult, but possible. If your smartphone does not have such functions, the bundle does not imply any extra cables, and you really want to change iOS to Android – this article is for you.

How to Transfer Contacts, Photos and Calendar from iPhone to Android

Install the GoogleDrive app on iOS, sign in with your Google account. In the application menu, select “Settings”, and there “Backup”. After that, log into your Google account on your new Android – all the information is already on your smartphone.

If you want to transfer contacts from iCloud to Android, then select the item “Mail, contacts, calendars” in the iPhone settings, and in the item “Accounts” – iCloud and activate the switch next to the item “Contacts”.

After that, go to icloud.com from your computer, select “Contacts” and click on the settings icon in the lower left corner. Then click “Select All”, click on the settings again and select “Export to vCard”.

Now you can send a document with contacts to your computer, and then to your smartphone: via SD card, mail or the cloud.

If contacts are stored in the iPhone’s memory, you can transfer them to Android through the iTunes application on a PC. To do this, connect your iPhone to your computer, open the “Information” tab, in the “Synchronize contacts with …” item, select “Google Contacts” and enter your account.

How to transfer mail

If you used Gmail on your iPhone, then you literally don’t need to do anything, just go to your Google account on your Android device. Alternatively, if you use Outlook, Yahoo or Apple Mail, click Add Account and select the email client you want from the list.

How to transfer apps

The bad news is that the app data you use on iOS can’t be transferred to Android, so you’ll have to install your favorite ones again. The good news is that most mobile apps are developed for iOS and Android, and Google apps generally sync easily and work on both platforms.

How to transfer music

If you are subscribed to the Apple Music service and listen to your favorite artists there, just download the application of the same name in the Google Play Market. This is one of the few (if not the only) Apple apps that android owners can download on Google Play.

Tracks you store on iPhone can be transferred from your PC using the iTunes app. To do this, transfer them to your computer, and then, via iTunes, to your new Android smartphone.
