Did you just purchase a new iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro and you are having issues with transferring all you have on your old Android device? Well, the same way Samsung and Google have simplified the process of switching from an iPhone to a Pixel 3, Apple also has a simple way to get all your data moved to a brand new iPhone and it is an app named “Move To iOS.”

This will transfer contacts, SMS history, site bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, pictures, clips e.t.c and will also download all Android applications that are free in the App store. These instructions will work with devices running Android 8.1 or earlier. On devices running Android 9 Pie, it won’t connect. Let’s break it down:
How Can I Transfer Data From Android 8.1 Or Earlier?
Because we are transferring data, before anything else, you need to charge up the 2 phones. As soon as the batteries are full, connect your Android device, to Wi-Fi. If you are using Google Chrome on your device and you wish to transfer your bookmarks, ensure the app is up to date before you begin any transfer.
After that, power on your brand new iPhone and adhere to the instructions until you reach the Apps & Data screen. Select “Move Data” from Android.

On your Android device, get “Move To iOS” installed from the Google Play Store, then launch it. On your iPhone, click “Continue” on the Move from Android screen. A six or ten-digit code will be visible.
Head back to your Android device and click “Continue” on the Move to iOS screen and then check the Terms and Conditions and tap “Agree.” On the “Find Your Code” screen, click “Next” in the top-right corner. Then enter the six-ten-digit code when asked. After that, on your Android phone, choose the content that you wish to move to your iPhone on the Transfer Data screen and click “Next.”
The process might take some time, so I advise you to start it before going to sleep or any other time when the phone is not in use. Bear in mind that, even when your Android device shows that the process is complete, make sure the two phones are left alone until the loading bar ends on your iOS device.
Next, adhere to the onscreen instructions to wrap up the set-up of your iPhone. When the transfer is over, download any free application that was matched in the App Store. Lastly, ensure all your content are transferred by accessing your picture gallery.
All songs, books or PDFs on your Android phone will have to be transferred manually. However, it is possible to download all this from your Android device with the Android File Transfer application on Mac or PC. Then they can be added to iTunes and synced to your iPhone or upload to iCloud Drive.
How Can I Transfer Data From Android 9 Pie Or Newer?
If you are using a phone that runs Android 9 Pie and you are transferring to an iPhone, use Move To iOS. If it fails to work, we have 3rd-party applications for Macs and Personal computers that will also get the job done. A decent option is AnyTrans.
More Information About Your iPhone 11:
The iPhone 11 is a smartphone designed, developed and marketed by Apple Inc. It is the thirteenth generation lower-priced iPhone, succeeding the iPhone XR. It was unveiled on September 10, 2019, alongside the higher-end iPhone 11 Pro flagship at the Steve Jobs Theater in the Apple Park, Cupertino by Apple CEO Tim Cook, with pre-orders beginning on September 13, 2019, with an official release on September 20, 2019, one day after the scheduled release of iOS 13.
The prominent changes compared with the iPhone XR are the Apple A13 Bionic chip, and an ultra wide dual camera system. While the iPhone 11 Pro comes with an 18W Lightning to USB-C fast charger, the iPhone 11 comes with the same 5W charger found on previous iPhones, even though both models can utilize this faster charger.
The iPhone 11 is available in six colors: purple, yellow, green, black, white, and red. There is a notch at the front for the TrueDepth camera system and speaker, similar to its predecessor, the iPhone XR. There is a bump in the back for the cameras and the flash that is the same size as the iPhone 11 Pro, although the iPhone 11 only has two cameras compared to the Pro’s three. Also, the iPhone 11 has a matte rear camera housing and smooth back, while the iPhone 11 Pro has a smooth rear camera housing and matte back. The Apple logo is now centered on the back of the device with no text.
iPhone 11 is shipped with iOS 13, which includes Siri, Face ID (through the TrueDepth camera), Apple Pay, and supports Apple Card.
