Part 1: Transfer Game Progress from Android to Android via Cloud

In Android phones, the easiest way to transfer game progress to new phone Android is using Google Play Games. It is a Google Cloud service used by many games to store game progress, achievements, etc. Follow these steps to transfer game progress from Android to Android using Google Play Games:

Step 1: On your old Android phone, go to Google Play Games and tap "Three Dots" to open the "Settings" menu. In "Settings," enable the "Automatically Sign-in to Supported Games" option located under the "Profile and Privacy" section. Ensure you have created the Google account backup on the old Android device.

Step 2: Now activate your new Android phone and sign in using the Google account used in the old one. Next, open the Google Play Store, tap the "Profile" icon, and select "Manage Apps and Devices." You will see a prompt, "Install apps you've used before."

Step 3: Open the prompt by pressing "Review All," Here you can see the list of apps you already used on the old Android phone. Select and install the games you want on your new Android phone.

Part 2: How to Transfer Game Data to New Android Phone Manually

Another way to transfer game data from Android to a new Android phone is by doing it manually. You will need to connect your Android devices to a computer and allow Windows to access your phone storage. Follow these steps to transfer game data manually:

Step 1: Once both your Android devices are connected to your computer, open the mobile storage of the old Android device. Now, navigate to the game's folder whose data you want to transfer. It will be located inside the "OBB" folder. The "OBB" folder can be accessed by tapping "Android."

Step 2: When you have located the game folder, find and copy the OBB file of the game. Before moving to your new Android device, ensure that the targeted game is already installed on your new Android device. Remember not to open the newly installed game.

Step 3: On your computer, move to the mobile storage folder of the new Android device and locate the game folder of the targeted game by following the same procedure as in step 1. Paste the copied OBB file there.

You can now enjoy the game on your new Android device from where you had left it on your old device.

Part 3: Transfer Games From iPhone to iPhone

If you are upgrading to the latest iPhone model and want to transfer your games to the new iPhone, you can use iCloud backup.

The iCloud backup of your old iPhone allows you to easily restore your old data and games to the new iPhone. Follow these steps to use iCloud to transfer games from iPhone to iPhone:

Step 1: First, ensure that the latest iCloud backup of your old iPhone exists. Open "Settings" on your old iPhone and tap on the Apple ID profile. On the next screen, tap "iCloud" and press "iCloud Backup."
