Android, Android Transfer

Are you switching from an Android device to the new iPhone XR? Transferring your data manually is easier than you might think. In this tutorial, we will guide you step by step on how to transfer your data from Android to the iPhone XR without the need for any third-party apps.

Step 1: Backup Your Android Device

Before starting the transfer process, it is essential to create a backup of your Android device. This backup will ensure that all your important data, including contacts, photos, videos, and messages, are safely stored.

Backup Your Contacts

To backup your contacts on an Android device:

  • Open the Contacts app on your Android device.
  • Select the menu icon (three vertical dots) in the top right corner of the screen.
  • Choose “Import/Export” or “Manage Contacts” from the menu options.
  • Select “Export” or “Share Contacts.”
  • Choose where you want to save the file (e.g., Google Drive or email).
  • Tap “Export” or “Send.”

Backup Your Photos and Videos

To backup your photos and videos on an Android device:

  • Connect your Android device to a computer using a USB cable.
  • Navigate to your device’s storage or SD card through File Explorer (on Windows) or Finder (on Mac).
  • Select the photos and videos you want to backup.
  • Copy the selected files and paste them into a folder on your computer.

Step 2: Set Up Your iPhone XR

Once you have created a backup of your Android device, it’s time to set up your new iPhone XR. Follow these steps:

Insert Your SIM Card

Eject the SIM card tray on your iPhone XR using a SIM eject tool or a paperclip. Insert your SIM card into the tray, then push it back into the iPhone XR.

Power On Your iPhone XR

Press and hold the side button (power button) until the Apple logo appears on the screen. Once you see the logo, release the button.

Set Up as New iPhone or Restore from Backup

Select “Set Up as New iPhone” if you want to start with a fresh installation. Alternatively, if you want to restore from an iCloud or iTunes backup, choose “Restore from iCloud Backup” or “Restore from iTunes Backup.”

Step 3: Transfer Data Using ‘Move to iOS’ App

If you chose “Set Up as New iPhone,” follow these steps to transfer your data:

‘Move to iOS’ App Setup on Android Device

  • Select “Apps & Data” on your iPhone XR setup screen.
  • Select “Move Data from Android.”
  • In the Google Play Store on your Android device, install the “Move to iOS” app.
  • Open the “Move to iOS” app on your Android device.
  • Tap “Continue” and agree to the terms and conditions.

Data Transfer Process

  • Select the type of data you want to transfer (e., contacts, messages, photos).
  • Tap “Next” on your Android device.
  • Type in the unique code displayed on your iPhone XR.
  • Wait for the transfer process to complete. This may take some time depending on the amount of data being transferred.
  • Select “Continue” on your iPhone XR when prompted.
  • Fulfill any additional setup steps required (e., sign in with your Apple ID).

In Conclusion
