If you are an Android user and now want to switch to an iOS device (got the new iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus?), transferring data from your Android device to iOS device will top your priority list. Until now, Apple eco-system has never allowed any other penetration unless iTunes, iCloud or any product or service from Apple.
But sensing the need of the hour, Apple has made some significant changes with the release of iOS 9. And now you can transfer or move your data from Android smartphone to iOS phone, i.e. iPhone.
However, Apple, with its iOS 9 public release, has provided an easier way to move data from Android to iOS. Before you move your data, please note that this method will work on a blank iPhone, i.e. a brand new one. If you want to transfer data from your Android phone to iPhone, you need to go for Factory Reset in your iPhone.
“Move to iOS” is an app that can help you migrate from Android to iOS device. And you can find this app on Google Play Store on your Android smartphone.
