How to Transfer Data from Samsung to iOS Devices

The idea of upgrading to a new device is appealing until you start realizing the fact that your precious data is still residing in your older device, and it would be a real pain in the neck to transfer it to your new phone.

The thousands of messages, files and folders make your older device a virtual treasure chest. When switching from one Android device to another, transferring your data to the new phone is easy. However when you want to switch to a different platform such as to an iOS device, the data transfer process becomes trickier.

You can sync your contacts to a new device through Google Sync, and even iTunes can help you bring some of your old data to your new iOS device. However transferring all other data such as messages, photos, call logs etc. still remains a challenging task. Some major problems that you may face while attempting to transfer data from your Samsung to any iOS device include:

• Individually moving each folder such as Messages, Contacts, Photos and other media files manually can be exhausting.

• The lengthy process requires you to first transfer the data from your Samsung device to PC and then from PC to your iOS device. This is time-consuming.

• You are required to install a third-party applications such as android file transfer while transferring data from your Samsung to iOS device via Mac PC.

• You are needed to install a streaming music app on your iOS device to be able to transfer the music files from your Samsung device.

• For other files such as documents, pages and keynotes, you must either install a separate app or set up an iCloud account on your iOS device, and then go through the horrendous task of first transferring your files to your iCloud account from your Samsung phone, and then downloading those files on to your iOS device.
