How to move from iPhone to Samsung

Back up your old iPhone or iPad

  1. From your Home screen, go to Settings > Your name > iCloud > iCloud Backup.
  2. Here, you’ll be able to see when your phone was last backed up. If there isn’t a recent backup, tap ‘Back Up Now’ to make a new one.

Backing up to iCloud may take a while, so make sure your iPhone is fully charged or charging while it backs up.

Restore your backed up data to your new Samsung

On your Samsung phone, install Samsung Smart Switch from the Play Store to get started. Once it’s installed, follow these steps to transfer your data:

  1. Open the Smart Switch app on your phone. If you have a newer Samsung phone, it might be in Settings > Backup and reset > Open Smart Switch.
  2. Tap Start on the welcome screen to proceed.
  3. The app will show you what permissions it needs in order to work. Tap OK to give permissions and continue.
  4. If you don’t have any cables to connect between the two phones, you will need to transfer data wirelessly. Tap Wireless to move on.
  5. As you’re transferring data to your Samsung, tap Receive.
  6. Pick iOS Device.
  7. You will be asked to sign in to iCloud with your Apple ID and password. Enter the information, then tap Sign in.
  8. Once you’re logged in, all available backups will be shown. Tap on the backup you’d like to restore from, which will usually be the most recent.
  9. Choose what types of data you’d like to transfer, then tap Import.
  10. After the transfer is complete, you’ll get a confirmation that basic content is imported. Tap Continue to move on to the next step.
  11. Now you can import personal files like photos, video and more. Smart Switch can even find Android alternatives for apps you’ve got on your iPhone, if you leave Apps selected.
  12. Once the data has finished transferring, you’ll get a confirmation message telling you what was successfully imported. Press Close app to quit back to your Home screen and start using your Samsung phone.
