Switching from Android to iPhone? The transition isn’t very difficult, but it may seem a bit complicated. Android and iOS are two very different operating systems. While both systems are very user-friendly and easy to use, the transition process can be a little tedious because it is impossible to transfer data directly from Android to iPhone.
How do I transfer photos from Android to iPhone?
The other way to transfer photos from Android to iPhone is to use a computer with iTunes. Since the introduction of MacOS Catalina, Apple has abandoned the software, but if you are using an older version or a Windows PC, you still have access to iTunes. All you have to do is find the photos and videos on your Android phone, move them to your computer, sync them with iTunes, and then sync your new iPhone with iTunes. A similar process works for music, as explained below.
To transfer your photos from Android to iPhone, simply connect your Android phone to your PC or Mac. Select the photos and videos you want to move and drag them to a folder on your computer. For your convenience, we’ve created a new folder on the desktop called “Photos for Transfer”.
Now connect your iPhone to your PC or Mac, open iTunes and click on your iPhone. Click on Photos, check the “Sync photos from” box, and choose the folder where you saved your photos. Click Apply, and the photos sync with your iPhone.
Using Google Photos
This is the simplest method to consider if you have an active Internet connection (be careful if it is a measured connection).
First, you need to make sure that backup and synchronization with Google Photos is enabled on your Android. You can also refer to an existing guide that will help you learn how to back up photos on Android, which also explains Google Photos.
Now all you need to do is go to your iPhone and install the Google Photos application. Once you have installed Google Photos on your iOS device, you need to enable the Backup and Sync option (see figure above for help).
Whether you’re making a complete transition from an Android environment to the iOS ecosystem, or you just want to see the photos taken with your Android phone on your iPhone, you’ll need to upload the photos first. Since Android and iOS are two different operating systems, there is no direct way to transfer photos from one device to the other. After all, they’re both giants in their field, and they don’t want to make it easy for people to leave to work for another company.
Fortunately, there are services that allow you to transfer your photos from your Android phone to an iPhone. These services are used to take photos from your source device and transfer them to the destination device, which is your iPhone. The following instructions cover two of the methods for transferring photos from Android to iPhone without a computer.
