Some people get rid of their old Android phone before buying the iPhone. In that case, you might not be able to use the Switch option as it requires that both your phones should be available together. In that case, you can use the Backup & Restore option to backup your Android phone’s files to your computer and later transfer them to your iPhone.
Types of Files to Transfer from Android to iPhone
The following types of files can be transferred from Android to iPhone:
- SMS Logs.
- Calendar information.
You can use dr.fone – Switch to transfer most file types from Android to iPhone with the exception of call logs and apps.
