Part 1: Tricks for Android users switching to a new iPhone 7

We know you love your Android device but perhaps it is time to try your hands on an iPhone. With the new iPhone 7 coming out, it is a great time to migrate from Android to iOS. If you are totally new to iPhone, here are some great tricks you can use when you are ready to switch to a new iPhone 7.

  1. Contacts and calendar details that are synchronised with your Google account, you will be able to import them from your Gmail account on iOS. This will sync all the data that you have on your account to your new iPhone 7.
  2. Contacts that are locally saved on your Android device, you will need to export them to your SD card (Contacts > Menu > Import/Export). Once you have them on your SD card, transfer them to your computer and save them on your Gmail account. From there, export them on your new iPhone. Alternatively, you can download iTunes on your computer and use it to transfer the contacts from your SD card to the new device.
  3. Media files are best transferred using iTunes. Launch iTunes on your computer and connect your Android and iOS devices to your computer via USB cables. Drag and drop files from your Android device into iTunes---it will then automatically sync with the right folders on your iPhone 7. Alternatively, you can always transfer media files using any cloud storage services.
  4. Download Google Play Music, Google Play Movies & TV and Google Play Books to access music, movies and books you purchased on Google Play. You will instantly get your collection through this method.
  5. If you mostly stream and "download" music from a streaming service like Pandora, Slacker and Spotify on your Android device, there is probably an iOS-compatible version for your favourite music streaming apps.
  6. Following the steps used to transfer media files, any types of documents can be transfered via iTunes. It will automatically sync with your iPhone 7 so you can be assured that your documents will be in the right folder. Alternatively, you can always transfer documents using any cloud storage services.
  7. If you use your Android to browse the internet, chances are that you have a large bookmark library.  Transfer your browser (Chrome, Firefox or IE) bookmarks to Safari  via iCloud.
  8. If the only reason you are prolonging the switch is because you cannot part with your Google apps and services, we would like you to know that there are Google apps and services run on iOS too. Here is a list of iOS-compatible Google apps and services that you can continue to use freely on iPhone 7: Gmail, Chrome, Google Drive, Google Maps, YouTube, Google Docs, Hangouts, Google+, Google Earth, Google Search, Google Play Books, Google Play Music and Google Translate.
  9. Download the Move to iOS app  that allows Android users to transfer content from their current Android device to iPhone 7 wirelessly. The app is able to let you transfer ontacts, message history, media content like photos and videos, web browser saves, as well as mails, calendars content, and more without any problem.
  10. If you are sure that you will be changing to an iPhone 7, find out which accessories that you will need to purchase due to incompatibility. It would be wise to purchase "standard" accessories (battery backups and earphones) in advance because you will be lured to purchased iPhone-7-exclusive accessories. They are nice to have but not necessary.

  4. Apple finally decides to make  removing pre-installed iOS apps an option ! It is a good thing especially when not many people are using apps like Stocks, Compass and Weather. It also allows many users to be able to have only one email app that works best for them.
  5. Speaking of email apps, the upgraded Mail app will make it easier to unsubscribe to mailing lists . While reading an emailer, iOS 10 will give you an "unsubscribe" button readily at the top of the page---this will make it easier for your to remove yourself from the list without squinting at your iPhone to find the right link.
  6. Live Photos has been working great. So, what will make it more awesome? Well, combining Live Photos features with filters  of course!
  7. A dream come true for many people: inline video playback . Users will be able to resize the video button once it starts playing in full-screen mode in mobile Safari.
  8. Users will be able to turn Read Receipts on/off individually  so that you only get notifications that matter.
