Ready to transfer to iOS? Download the Move to iOS app to get help switching from your Android device to your new iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
If you live in China, learn how to download Move to iOS.
Here's what you need
- iOS 9 or later
- iPhone 5 or later
- iPad 4th generation or later
- iPad mini 2nd generation or later
- iPod touch 6th generation
- Android version 4.0 or later
Before you begin
- On your Android device, make sure that Wi-Fi is on.
- Plug your new iOS device and your Android device in to power.
- Make sure the content you're moving, including what's on your external Micro SD card, will fit on your new iOS device
- If you want to transfer your Chrome bookmarks, update to the latest version of Chrome on your Android device.
If you need help with the transfer
If you have issues moving your content, there are a couple of things that you can check:
- Make sure that you leave both devices alone until the transfer finishes. For example, on your Android device, the Move to iOS app should stay onscreen the whole time. If you use another app or get a phone call on your Android before the transfer finishes, your content won't transfer.
- On your Android device, turn off apps or settings that might affect your Wi-Fi connection. For example, turn off features like the Sprint Connections Optimizer or the Smart Network Switch. Then try again.
- Restart both of your devices and try again.
If you need help after the transfer
- If Messages doesn't work as expected after you've transferred your content, get help.
- If you don't see apps from your Android device on your new iOS device, find and download them in theApp Store on your new device.
- You might find that only some content transferred and your iOS device ran out of space, or your iOS device might appear full even though the transfer didn't finish. If so, erase your iOS device and start the transfer again. Make sure that your Android content doesn't exceed the available space on your iOS device.
