Apple is keeping folks in suspense as it works on the eventual release of a revamped iPhone 8. The past days have seen varying speculations and most of it are not comforting due to potential delays. Regardless, some devices are getting a price cut such as the iPhone 6s with deals that may be hard to resist.

Getting an iPhone 6s is the easy part, probably financed right into one’s budget. Folks who have been Apple users all their life are likely to make an easy transition, especially when it comes to moving data from their old unit to the new one. But what if the new iPhone owner is someone who previously used Android?

Thanks to the rise of cloud technology, migrating contacts, messages, photos and web bookmarks should be easy. All of that depends on how one has configured their Android phone. Hence, it all boils down to how organized one is, not necessarily done because they were looking to shift operating systems at one point. Rather, it was more about making sure that - in cases of phone loss or theft, their data can be retrieved at any point, BGR reported.

For those who have a phone data in disarray, don’t fret. There is an app that can help you out called “Move to iOS.” The name of the app is pretty much self-explanatory and supports devices that run on Android 4.0 or higher. With the app, contacts, the message history, camera photos/ videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts and calendars should be synced in easily.

If not the latest iPhone devices in the market, folks who (for some reason) decide to shift to iOS will find this app handy. It could be due to performance issues or perhaps just to use a different OS-powered phone for a change.

Moving data from Android to iOS has been a bane for most so the “Move to iOS” gives most a break. The thing here is that you are moving most of the data. If one is just concerned about contacts, an easy way would be to save your contacts to a VCF file. Transfer it to the phone or access it via email and you can migrate all your contacts in a jiffy. Again, this only covers contacts and not other data.
