Switch from Samsung to iOS

I switched from the S5 to the iPhone 6 for a couple of reasons. I like iOS better and couldn't get used to Android software. I think iOS is smoother and has less problems. Also, I did not like the water resistant charging port cover. It was cheap, prone to breaking, and a royal pain. I am much happier after switching back to iPhone.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Vs iPhone 6

Many Samsung users now are willing to switch to new iPhone 6S or iPhone 6S plus, but they don't know how to transfer all from the old Samsung Galaxy to iPhone 6S without complex operation. In fact, both Samsung, Apple and other software company have developed apps to solve this problem. Here in this article, we will introduce two ways to transfer data from Samsung to iPhone.

1. Move to iOS

According to Apple, this Android to iOS transfer app securely transfers your contacts, message history, camera photos and videos, web bookmarks, mail accounts, calendars, wallpaper, and DRM-free songs and books. And it will help you rebuild your app library, too. Any free apps you used — like Facebook and Twitter — are suggested for download from the App Store. And your paid apps are added to your iTunes Wish List.

Step 2 On your Samsung phone, search and install "Move to iOS" in Google Play Store.

Step 3 Tap Continue on both phones, and Agree and then Next on the Android phone.

Step 4 One the Android phone, enter then 12-digit code displayed on the iPhone.

Step 5 After entering the code, it will ask whether you want to transfer your Google Account info, Chrome bookmarks, text messages, contacts, and the photos and videos in your camera roll. Select what you want, and then tap Next.

Step 6 After the loading bar finishes on your iOS device, tap Done on your Android device. Then tap Continue on your iOS device and follow the onscreen steps to finish setting it up.

Note: Move to iOS won’t bring your apps over, of course, but it also doesn’t attempt to find the same app in the App Store. You’ll have to go fetch those manually, which may get tedious. That's why it's very necessary to bring up Plan B to you.
