How to Transfer Photos from Android Smartphone to iPhone

Changing your smartphone does not necessarily mean “losing your photos”, even if you switch from Android to iOS. We explain how Apple makes your life easier.

The photos and videos you take with your smartphone are precious. It would be really unfortunate to lose them, just because you are switching from an Android to an iPhone. Indeed, losing a contact is not too serious, it is relatively easy to recover the lost number.
