Let’s suppose you have an iPhone, but you’re not exactly satisfied with the model. Furthermore, all of your friends have Android phones, and that aspect automatically increases your trust in Google’s operating system for mobile devices. In the end, you finally decided to make the big change and set your iPhone aside for an Android phone.
Switching from an iPhone to an Android device can be pretty difficult if you haven’t made a plan before, and not just because escaping the comfort zone is not the favorite game to play for most of us. That’s where Google comes to lend you a helping hand through its new “Switch to Android” app. By using it, it becomes a lot easier to transfer your photos, videos, contacts, and other data to an Android phone from an iPhone.

The Switch to Android app from Google helps you quickly and securely move your most important data types – photos, videos, contacts, and calendar events — to a brand new Android device without fussy cables.
The app also walks you through other important steps to setting up your device, like turning off iMessage so you don’t miss text messages from friends and family.
