However, move to the iOS app transfers a huge amount of your data, it doesn’t move your apps music, or any kind of passwords. Also, you can only move data using a tablet or Android phone to an iPad or iPhone running iOS 9 or higher. However, if you’ve got the latest iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max, then you no need to worry.

Step 1:

Initially, set up your iPad or iPhone until you reach the display screen titled “Apps & Data”.

Step 2:

Step 9:

Step 10:

On your mobile device, input the 12-digit code shown on the iPhone or iPad.

After you input the code, the mobile device will plug with your iPad or iPhone over a peer-to-peer internet connection and decide what data will be moved.

It will ask whether you like to move your Google Account info, Chrome bookmarks, contacts, messages, and the images and videos in your camera roll. Simply choose everything you like to transfer over.

Your tablet or mobile phone will move the chosen data over to your iPad or iPhone and put the appropriate content into the accurate apps. The two devices will unplug and Android will prompt you to take your old device to the Apple Store, where they’ll then recycle it for free.

When the transfer process is complete, click on Continue Setting Up iPhone or Continue Setting Up iPad on your device then carry on setting up the latest Apple ID or logging into your existing one.
