You bought an iPhone 14? Here’s how to transfer photos, apps, and WhatsApp chats from an Android phone

iPhone 14, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max are arriving in stores and customers’ hands in Malaysia starting today. Now, many of you are going from your Android phone, and if you’re like me, you’d probably think that migrating your data to your new device is a huge ordeal.

But you don’t really have to start over. There are ways to transport your things without very Lots of fuss, even if you live your whole life in your phone. Here’s how to transfer your data to your new iPhone and get started.

Use Apple’s Move to iOS app

The most straightforward way to move your data from Android to iOS is to use Apple’s Move to iOS app available at Google Play Store. The company says You will be able to transfer:

  • Contacts
  • message date
  • Pictures and videos
  • Photo albums
  • files and folders
  • Chrome bookmarks
  • Email accounts
  • calendars
  • Access settings
  • Display settings
  • WhatsApp messages and media
  • Some of the free apps found in both the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store

For this process to work, you need to have both your Android phone and iPhone close together and charging, and your iPhone should still be on setup (if you’ve already set it up, you’ll have to erase it and start over). On the Quick Start page, select “Set up manually” and follow the onscreen instructions. You will then be asked if you want to restore from a backup or transfer from an existing iPhone or Android device. Select Transfer Data from Android.

From here, you will need to switch to your Android phone. Open the Move to iOS app, select Continue and agree to Apple’s Terms and Conditions. You will then be asked to enter a six or ten digit code that will appear on your iPhone.

To transfer data, iPhone will create a temporary WiFi network, which you can connect to on your Android phone by clicking “Connect”. After that, you will be able to select the types of data you want to transfer. Select Continue and let the big step begin.

There is one important thing you need to do while this is happening: YOU You have To leave both phones alone, no matter how long it takes. Don’t Touch Your Android – Don’t walk away from the Move to iOS app, use another app, or even pick up a phone call. If you do any of this, the conversion will be canceled and you will have to start over. Let the progress bar on your iPhone finish, even if your Android phone shows that the process is complete.

Only when the progress bar is finished, you can tap Done on your Android phone. You can now select Continue on your iPhone and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the setup. Next, go to the App Store to download the free apps that were on your Android device.

no everything Music, books, and PDFs can, of course, be transferred manually using your Mac or PC and the iTunes/Music app. You also can’t transfer app data (so say goodbye to game progress and the like), and you’ll also have to buy paid apps again (if there’s an iOS version, of course). Also, if you are using WhatsApp, you cannot transfer your call history or your display name.

Sign in to your Google account

Another way to transfer some data from your Android phone is to sign in to the Google account you used as the primary account. You can sync your contacts and add Gmail and Google Calendar by going to the Contacts, Mail and Calendar menu in Settings (Accounts > Add Account). Of course, for the best experience, you can download Google’s own apps (GmailAnd the Google CalendarAnd the ChromeAnd the Google Drive) from the Apple App Store.

What about my notes?

It’s a more complicated issue when it comes to notes, as most Android phones have their own notes app that can’t be ported to iOS. However, you can copy text from your notes and paste it into a compatible notes app, such as Google Keep. Keep in mind that this is a very tedious process, especially if you have a lot of notes – but it may be worth it if there is important information.

Stability in iOS

If you’re using a modern full-screen Android phone, the iPhone should feel quite familiar. Apple ditched the Home button starting with the iPhone X, which means you have to swipe from the bottom to go back to the Home screen and swipe along the bottom bar to switch between apps.

Cupertino has added some Android-aping features in newer versions of iOS to make it easier for Android users to feel right at home. You can add widgets on the home screen, browse the app library and remove apps from the home screen without deleting them starting with iOS 14, and with the latest iOS 16, you can now edit fonts and add widgets on the lock screen.
