Switching is easier than ever

Transfer your stuff from iOS in 3 easy steps.

Here’s how to switch

Step 1 of 3

Get Google Drive

First, download Google Drive to your iOS device and sign in with your Google account. If you don’t have a Google account, you can create one now or when you sign in to Google Drive.

If you already have Google Drive installed, make sure to update to the latest version.


Step 2 of 3

Back up your content

Once you’re in Google Drive, open the backup wizard by selecting Menu > Settings > Backup. Choose the content that you want to back up, or simply back up everything by clicking "Start Backup".

Backing up may take several hours, so we recommend you connect your device to power and Wi-Fi.

Step 3 of 3

Sign in on your Android device

Sign in to your Google account on your new Android device. Make sure to use the same account that you used to back up your iPhone.

Don’t forget to turn off iMessage. Learn more.
