Swap to Android’ App Now Available to All Phones with Android 12

Source: www.gizmodo.com

Android announced its support for the ‘Swap to Android’ app on iOS Wednesday, which will now be available to all users moving from iOS to phones with Android 12. The app is designed to make the hassle of transitioning from iPhone to Android easier. Android’s ‘Swap to Android’ is a welcome sight for former Apple fans who moved to Google’s mobile operating system, especially since Apple released the ‘Move to iOS’ app in 2015 for Android-to-iPhone switchers.

Google soft launched the ‘Swap to Android’ app in late April. If you wanted to move your data from iPhone to Android, it was a more tedious task before this app. You would have to go to a ‘Switch to Android’ webpage, back up your data to a computer, and then move it to Google Drive.

The app helps move important information from your iPhone to your Android. You can connect your iPhone to Android via cable or wifi, and then you have to follow their setup instructions for a seamless data transfer. And you don’t have to worry about your data disappearing from your old phone, the transfer just makes a copy of your data.

According to Android’s website, the data that will move from iPhone to Android via cable is the following: Contacts, Photos and Videos (that are stored locally on your phone, not iCloud), Messages, Wallpapers (custom photos only), Music (any DRM free, non-iTunes music), as well as call logs, alarms, and device settings.

If everything on your iPhone is backed up to iCloud, you may have a longer process. When the Android app was originally found unlisted in the iOS app store, one of Gizmodo’s reporters tested it out. The last step was to sign in to your Apple ID to copy your photos and videos from iCloud, and also involves sending a request to Apple for a copy of all your data. The positives of swapping to Android and using this app may outweigh this con of waiting for your data to transfer, as Android has features a lot of people love.

AJ helped me out and the 30-day warranty was great! The time was crazy fast too (just 30 minutes). I am very satisfied with the service.

I'm no different from you. I, too, felt like a lost soul when I didn't have access to my computer for work/school. However, Eazy Computers was there for me. They were communicative, reassuring, and most importantly, got my computer back to me in one piece. In fact, they even cleaned her before returning her back to me. When another problem arose a little later, they swifly took her back and still provided the same professionalism. I 10/10, 5/5, gold star, would recommend.

I went about a month ago to fix my Macbook Air, which Apple was trying to charge me $700 to repair. Eazy Computers fixed it faster, and save me about $600. They were so professional and helpful, and I can't thank them enough for the incredible job they did. LOVE this place

AJ was so wonderful and helped my father and me with so much ease and grace. Stacey Also helped us with such a lovely attitude and they allowed me to stay and watch the “operation” as they replaced my incredible cracked glass on my phone. I recommend this group of beings with all my heart! Thank you so much!
