According to a survey showing that there will be an increasing number of swithcers from Android to iPhone. So the problem is coming, when getting a new iPhone, how to deal with the data on old Android? Of course, migrate data from Android to iOS? How to make it? We will discuss in the following description.

Part 1. Move to iOS - Wireless Android to iOS migration

Yes. Apple has changed its strategy of iOS to make it more open. According to the announcement of Apple official website in iOS 9 updates, Apple adds a new app to allow moving Android files to iOS devices. Android users who want to transfer files from android to iOS only need to download the "Move to iOS" app with a wireless environment. It assures to transfer you contacts, messages, camera photos, videos, calendars wallpaper and more. It also can rebuild your app library for downloading free and paid apps separately.

Well, what are the light spots of this "Move to iOS" app?

1. You only need to download this app on your Android device.

2. It allows you to transfer every files.

3. It becomes more convenient for both Android and iPhone users.

However, there are some shortcomings of this app which you need to pay attention to:

2. Transfer files with wireless will be very slow, do you have enough patience?

3. The new App will appear in 9/10/11/12. What if you do not want to upgrade iOS?

Open your iTunes on your computer, control "shift" on the keyboard and "upgrade" on the iTunes at the same time, and the rest upgrading part can be finished automatically. Choose the prepared iOS 9/10/11/12 firmware, making sure that it is an .ipsw file.

We can get that "Move to iOS" app is not stable and mature enough to copy files from Android to iOS. In addition, this app has its limitation, that is, it supports transfer files from Android to 9/10/11/12, only. Not to other iOS operating system, not iOS to Android.

Three steps of making Android to iOS migration

Step 1 Plug your Android and iPhone to PC, and set the target and source device correctly.
