It’s a well know fact that Apple is the market leader when it comes to smartphones, and if their recent profits are any indication, the company has no intention of slowing down or losing ground. In just the past three months, Apple Inc has managed to sell no less than 47.5 million iPhones.
If you’ve previously been loyal to Samsung or any other Android brand, but have finally decided to make a change and switch to the ever popular iPhone, here’s some advice to help make the transition easier for you.
1) You should wait until winter before making the switch. Why? Because that’s when the next version of iOS (iPhone’s operating system) will be released. iOS 9 is set to offer wireless migration, which means that all you have to do is install an app called “Move to iOS” on your current Android phone and watch as all your contacts, email accounts, photos, messages, bookmarks and DRM-free music are being transferred on your new, shinny iPhone.
2) If you already have an iPhone, you can still move all of that information on the newer iPhone, however the process will be a little more complicated. Good news is that there are plenty of apps that will offer you step-by-step guidance.
3) Once your Google account has been synced with the iPhone you will need to remember to add your Gmail information into the smartphone’s mail and contacts settings.
4) If you don’t want to install the app for it (called “Copy MY Data”), you can copy your photos, videos and word docs onto the iPhone by first copying them on a computer desktop.
5) Your best option for moving DRM-free music files is via iTunes. Simply install iTunes on your computer or laptop, connect your Android phone to it and copy the files straight into iTunes. Install them in the library, then connect your iPhone to your PC and watch the music tracks automatically sync.
6) Social media account and music streaming accounts are some of the easiest to move. Simply install their specific apps on your new iPhone and log into you’re personal accounts. And you’re done!
One downside of iPhones? They don’t support SD and MicroSD memory cards. Just so you know.
