Switching from Android to iPhone can be a difficult process, particularly if you don’t have the right tool for the job. Most people worry that since these two devices run on completely different platforms, the data on the Android device will be almost impossible to move to the iPhone.

To address this problem, Apple developed the Move to iOS app, an all-round solution that allows you to easily move all data from the Android device to the iOS device very quickly and easily. All you have to do is connect the devices wirelessly and select the data to transfer.

But some users have reported several issues with Move to iOS. In this article, we are going to share with you what to do when Move to iOS doesn’t work as expected.

Tip 1: Check Network Connection on Both Devices

For Move to iOS to work, both devices need to be connected to the same network. If one or both devices are unable to connect to the network, the transfer of data from the Android to the iOS device may prove very difficult.

You can check whether the devices are connected in the iOS and Android “Settings” app. Ensure that both devices are connect to same network and then attempt to use Move to iOS again.

Tip 2: Restart Both iPhone and Android Devices

A simple restart of both devices can also help you easily fix this problem. So, before you attempt any more invasive fixes, you should try to restart both Android and iOS devices.

The easiest way to do that is to turn them off, wait a few minutes and then turn them back on again. After restarting the devices, try using Move to iOS again to see if it works.

Tip 3: Put Android into Airplane Mode

You can also try to put the Android device in Airplane Mode for a few moments. This will help if the problem is due to connectivity. Putting the Android device in Airplane Mode will shut down the device’s network connections, refreshing them and then fix any issues with Move to iOS.

Tip 4: Switch between Wi-Fi and Mobile Data

If you are still having trouble using Move to iOS, you can try to disable the Wi-Fi connection on the Android/iOS device and try using Mobile data instead. If the process still doesn’t work with mobile data, try switching back to Wi-Fi connectivity again.

Tip 5: Update Both iOS and Android Versions

This problem can also occur when one or both devices are running on outdated versions of firmware. Therefore, it is important to update the firmware on both devices before attempting to use Move to iOS again.

  • To update the iOS device, go to Settings > General > Software Update > Download and Install.
