Up process of selecting our language and our region and connecting to a Wi-Fi network we'll go ahead and enable location services will set up touch ID and we'll set up a pin now here's where things get interesting we are given the

Option to restore from an iCloud backup or restore from iTunes back those are useful if you already have an iPhone in this case we don't we're switching from Android setup as new iPhone will set up straight but move data from Android lets

Us take everything that's on this the important stuff like our contacts and calendars and photos and transfer the month the item so that's what we're going to do it tells us that we need to download the move to iOS app punch the

Android phone so that's exactly what we're going to do we'll fire the Play Store and we'll do a search for move to iOS and there it is we go ahead and download and install this app it's asking for all

Agree of course and it's asking us to find our code from the iPhone so we will could tap continue here on the iPhone and it gives us this code this is to help us create a network that bridges the two devices so we have our code and

Whole transfer is complete we'll continue setting up our iPhone we're going to head and create a new Apple ID because we're setting up a new account here we will turn on Siri we're gonna turn on diagnostics in we'll share app

Analytics with developers and we'll go I think get started here and here we are the iPhone just as you'd expect now if we go ahead and tap into photos here we could see that the photos that I had on the Android phone have been transferred

Over onto this phone everything that I took over here so we're here and now we're getting gonna start getting pop-ups for entering our passwords because it's transferred over the account settings but it hasn't
