Google has published an official “How to” guide elaborating how you can switch from iOS to Android ecosystem, without losing your data. The user guide is available on Android website and will be a handy tool for those planning on switching to Android OS.
Google has elaborated how you can transfer you music, photos, contacts, apps and mail from iPhone or iPad to your Android phone. The process is quite simple. To transfer your images and other media content, just download Google+ on iPhone and enable auto backup.
Contacts can be backed up on Gmail. Google also lets you transfer up to 20,000 songs from iTunes to Google Play Music for free! The process to do so has been elaborated in Google’s official user guide.
Transferring contacts is not as seamless. You will have to convert contacts to vCard format and add the file to Gmail. This won’t be hard to accomplish either. Head on to the user guide for more details
Of course you can also use other apps and cloud services for the same, but Google options work well and won’t cost you anything. Google also published How to guides for the first time android users on Android website.
Earlier Apple posted a similar guide which obviously explains how you can switch from iOS to Android. So if you have been avoiding shifting to a new eco-system for the fear of losing your precious data, both Apple and Google are eager to help you eliminate that road block.
