Switch from Android to iOSDan Graziano offers simple but important tips on how to switch over from an Android phone to an iPhone.
[MUSIC] Features like apple pay and a larger screen have a lot of people interested in upgrading to iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 plus. Even some android users have taken notice. If you're one of those people who are ready to take the plunge to Apple from android, you're in luck. [MUSIC] It used to be a pain to switch from one mobile platform to the other, but it's now easier than ever to transfer all of your old data from Android to your new iPhone. Syncing your mail, contacts and calendar with your new device is simple. Google will automatically back up all of your information to your Gmail account. From your new iPhone, check the settings, scroll down to mail, contacts, calendars. Tap add account, and select Google. Enter your Gmail credentials and click next. Make sure everything you would like to synch over to your new iPhone is checked off and then click save. Your contacts, calendars and email will now be synched up. But one thing is still missing, and that's your photos. The easiest way to get your photos over to your new iPhone would be to use a cross-platform cloud service such as Google Plus Photos, Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox, or a similar app that is available on both Android and iOS. You can also upload your photos to your computer and manually transfer them to your iPhone. To do this start by connecting your Android device to your computer. If you're on Windows you can simply drag and drop files, on a Mac you must download a free program from Google called Android file transfer. Once it has been installed, open it, click on the DCIM folder, followed by camera. You can then drag and drop all of your photos or specific ones to your computer. I recommend creating a New Folder and placing the photos in it. This will make it easier to sync with them with your iPhone later on. To get those photos over to your new device, simply connect your iPhone to your computer, open iTunes and choose to Sync Photos from that same folder. [MUSIC] For everything else, Google has a ton of apps available for free on the Apple's App store. There's Google Play books, movies, music, and newsstands for all of your content. The must haves for any Android user, has to be Google Maps, and the Google search app, which will show you all those cool predictive Google now cards. And that's all it takes to bring the world of Google to your iPhone. [MUSIC]
