Google Finally Makes Switching to Android Easier for iPhone Users

Google quietly released its “Switch to Android” app for iOS earlier this year to help users switch from an iPhone to an Android device. At launch, this app was only compatible with Pixel devices, but today Google has announced (opens in new tab)that the Switch to Android app will now support all Android 12 smartphones.

While the iOS app has made the transition from iPhone to Android easier, it’s not a fully automated process. It provides an easier way to escape Apple’s walled garden if you choose to do so.

The app starts the transfer by scanning a QR code on the Android 12 setup screen in the initial setup process. The app will ask you to connect your old iPhone to your new Android phone using a Lightning to USB C cable or wirelessly.
