Apple’s Move to iOS app facilitates the data transfer from an Android device to an iOS device on initial configuration over a Wi-Fi network. With Move to iOS, you can transfer contents in the micro SD card also, provided that you have enough space on the newly bought iPad. Below is how to transfer files from an Android device ft. Nougat to an iPad tablet ft. iOS 11 using the Move to iOS app.
Prior to starting the transfer, download and install Move to iOS app in Android Nougat from Play Store, enable Wi-Fi on the Android device and charge the device if low battery. Moreover, ensure you have the latest version of Google Chrome in Android in order to transfer bookmarks to the iPad.
Switch on the iPad and continue the beginning configurations steps and select Apps & Data when you reach there and then choose Move Data from Android option. Now, open Move to iOS on your Android device, and choose Continue by tapping Agree once you read terms and conditions on the Find Your Code page. Subsequently, tap on Next on the Android device.
After that, choose Continue on the Move Data from Android page appearing on the iPad and a verification code would be sent to the device in a few seconds. Enter the verification code on the Android device once prompted and wait for a while until the Transfer Data page pops up.
You can then choose the content you want to move on the Android device including Calendar, Contacts, Bookmarks, Messages, and Bookmarks. If the free applications feature in both Google Play Store and Apple App Store, you can transfer the apps also to the iPad using the Move to iOS app.
Choose Next once you select the transferrable files on the app and leave alone both the Android device and the iPad even if the app notifies a successful transfer on Android. In fact, you should wait for the loading bar to complete on the iPad indicating the moving process that may take a few minutes or longer as per the content size.
Once the process completes on the iPad tablet, tap on Done on the Android device. Then, you can Continue the configuration of the newly bought iPad by following the on-screen prompts as usual.
