Switching From Iphone To Android-How It Works

by | February 1, 2017

A change of the operating system is perhaps a little complicated, but not impossible. We show how it goes and what you must consider when the apps, photos, iTunes, mail, contacts, etc..

Apple is known to bind its customers particularly sent to its closed system. It feels a little like a golden prison. There are certainly users who thus have no problem at all and feel comfortable in the Apple world. There is also one or the other who has desire to try out an Android phone. Finally the Smartphones with the operating system Google have evolved gradually. But still many are reluctant to leave because they want to also continue to need their whole data, files and familiar apps and use from their iPhone. However, there are ways to realize the transition smoothly. We have the instructions, as opting out of the Apple world.

Before starting: Set up a Google account

Who wants to use an Android Smartphone, almost already necessarily needs a Google account. It is so to speak the Apple ID from Google. Without them, you can download any apps or use other services such as mobile navigation and location services. You can set your Google account at gmail.com. There are however some things to consider, what about your privacy. You to read our post, “What do Google know about me?” by.

Services of the Smartphone manufacturer

Some phone manufacturers offer own services that you facilitate the change from the iPhone to the Android Smartphone. Samsung offers smart Samsung switch for it. Sony offers the Xperia transfer mobile and HTC to the sync service.

 

Transfer contacts

The man is older, the more contacts accumulate over the course of time. If it were only friends, there are now, for example, important business partners, whose numbers you don’t want to lose. The error-free and above all complete acquisition of the contacts is even more important when changing the system of iOS to Android. To transfer the contacts on your Android phone, you must first save it in Euerem iCloud account. Go to settings and selects the item “Mail, contacts, calendars”. Then taps her on iCloud and activates the slider in “Contacts”.

Now, the contacts with the iCloud are synchronized. Then, open the Internet browser and logs you into your iCloud service. Click on “Contacts”, marked the contacts to be transferred and then click on the gear.

 

Have you done that, logs you in to the Gmail account, click to the left on “GMail” and then “Choose Contacts”. There you’ll find the menu item “export vCard”, with which you can create a vCard with the selected contacts. In the menu under the “more”, entry, you click on “Import”. Now you can login to your Android Smartphone with the Gmail account and contacts are synchronized to the device.

 

iTunes library on Google music

First, you must make sure that the music on your iPhone is completely synchronized on your computer via iTunes. After you download the Google play music Manager and connects it to your Gmail account.The Manager allows you a folder view. Select the folder to be synchronized and already you will be listening to iTunes track on your Android powered device under Google play. Who uses streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer or even Apple music, can download of course the associated Android app.

 

Pictures and videos

Transferring pictures and videos is a little more difficult. If your library is very large, the copying process with cloud apps like dropbox or Google drive is worthwhile, however, this is quite tedious. It was easier with SendAnywhere. The application is there for Android, iPhone, Windows phone, Windows, OS X, as well as a browser feature. To open the app, sets the data to be copied and enter the displayed number on the receiving device or clicks “Send Key”, if your devices on the same network. The app controls the rest.

Apps

Huge app selection here as

The number of app for the operating system has grown steadily since the launch of Android. End of October this year, it was ready: the Google OS could catch up for the first time in this category with the iOS competition from Apple, as cnet reported. Both had a list of 700,000 applications at this time. With the great app offer the two operating systems stand out significantly from Windows phone, whose store offers even a bigger range, but is pretty beaten down with about 130,000 apps.

Who was for a long time iPhone users, will no longer waive determines many of the already integrated or most popular apps for the OS. The good news: On the one hand more and more previously pure iOS apps in Android are offered (Wunderlist, Instagram, etc.), on the other hand, often interesting alternatives are available. While I will not dwell on those apps, which anyway are both iOS and Android available, such as Facebook, Twitter, SHAZAM, Deutsche Bahn Navigator, ARD library etc., but really on the special iOS applications.

1 Siri

With Siri Apple put out for his iPhone 4S a new language assistants, which considers not only sentences as voice input, but can also speak. Not just any ask Siri, you can dictate messages the program or create calendar entries can be.

Android are different alternatives available. So, the integrated “Search by voice” app can receive various commands such as “Weather in [place]” or “[Web page] show”. “Maluuba International” is a free app alternative. The menu navigation of the app, which is still in a beta state, while in English, Maluuba understands language input but already in German. Here questions to be on the one hand, and Wolfram alpha will be consulted, on the other hand, you can fill the calendar by voice command over “My Day”.However, users should wait until the application is fully available in German. “S voice” available, which is however still not really usable in German is finally a Samsung Smartphone owners.

For smartphones running Google Android 4.1 jelly bean, is the free app “Google Search” the best alternative of Siri. You search not only Google, but also the Smartphone itself and includes the service “Google now”, which reminds on dates, announces sports scores etc. If you press the microphone system, can ask the question by voice and gets a spoken response. Here, too, the German version is but is not yet fully mature.

Google search convinced anyway, in this video comparison with Siri (in English):

  1. FaceTime and iMessage

FaceTime is a video telephony application specifically for Apple devices, since iOS does 6 both Wi-Fi and cellular network. The alternative is clearly the best known video calling software Skype. This requires a (free) Skype account, which must have also the interlocutor, as long as you also want to see this.Otherwise, you can do (paid) talks to global landlines and mobile phone numbers with SkypeOut.

iMessage is the Messenger for Apple devices. With the applications you can from iPhone to another iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or on a Mac for free write, and in this way share photos, videos, contacts, etc.. Here you have the best alternative as Android users with WhatsApp (which is incidentally also available for iOS), because it is cross-platform and runs on Nokia’s Symbian and S40 OS. The app itself is free for Android, use an “annual contract” of 99 cents is charged for but now. There is also the completely free Messenger service ‘ChatOn‘ from Samsung, which also iOS that runs Windows phone, BlackBerry like WhatsApp on Android, and even on Bada. The spread is so far but far lower than WhatsApp.

  1. Safari

While the iPhone uses Safari, there are (still) no single browser for Android. In the future might Google chrome this

Assume role on the Google nexus 7 for the first time from House was installed. Until now, each manufacturer has its own browser but for his device, but these are not always the best option. There are many alternative browsers, of which the above mentioned Google chrome browser is definitely recommended. Uncluttered design allows it an extremely fleet display of pages and a liquid use to bookmarks, passwords etc. with the PC-chrome can easily be synchronized. Condition for use is an Android version from 4.0 ice cream sandwich.

Alternatively is the Firefoxalso known by the PC browser available, which can be just as easily synchronize and extend AdBlock Plus with Add-Ons such as the popular ad blocker. However, it is slower than the chrome browser a lot. In terms of speed has Opera Mini the nose front, which loads the pages on its own server and then compressed to the Smartphone sends. Thus, a sufficiently fast browsing experience is possible even if the weak data connection.

  1. AirPlay

With AirPlay you can send content quickly and easily from his iPhone to a TV. However, this must be equipped with an Apple TV set-top box. There are three different modes, so you can stream multimedia content on the TV (streaming), at the same time as an iWork presentation on both units display (mirroring), or represent a completely different content (dual screen), especially playing whats interesting, viewing extra information on the Smartphone which acts as a controller can be beiwelchen.

A 1:1-alternative to AirPlay is not yet available for Android. However became known recently, that Google is working on an open AirPlay alternative for his brand new GoogleTV. It reported GigaOM in mid-November. A first foretaste is “send to TV” from YouTube, which brings videos on the TV that you can control from the YouTube app on your Smartphone. DLNA is an already existing and known standard for transferring screen contents. But the possibilities are quite limited and the creation of somewhat laborious. Another standard in life was called with “Miracast” that uses the Wi-Fi direct technology and Android 4.2 jelly bean should be supported. It allows to display images and videos in full HD quality on a compatible device. However, only the mirroring of the content can be realized with Miracast.

 

Conclusion

There are now enough app alternatives and ways to realize the move of data and files from iPhone to Android. Who has so far hesitated, can dare quietly moving – help Google account, DoubleTwist and chrome, WhatsApp & co. let you soon forget the iOS apps. A still more iOS apps you fall, for which there are good Android alternatives? Or maybe one, soon should give it something adequate for Google’s OS for that anyway?
