Android has tons of games available for it on the official Play Store as well as on many unofficial websites. You have likely played at least one game on your device and have scored well. After all, Android is an efficient mobile operating system and handles games pretty well than other similar operating systems. But it is pretty difficult from you to transfer game data from Android to iPhone. The issue here is that you when you switch to an iPhone, you don’t have a straightforward way to transfer your game data.

While there are tons of methods available to transfer other things like photos and videos from Android to iPhone, there aren’t many methods to transfer game data from Android to iPhone. The reason being Android stores game data with a Play Store account whereas an iPhone stores game data with your Apple account. Both are different accounts and they don’t sync with each other.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t transfer data of all the games you have on your Android device. There are a few games that let you sync data between various devices.

Transfer Game Data from Android to iPhone

Usually any game that syncs with your social media accounts such as your Facebook account should let you transfer data to an iPhone. The reason is because your data is synced to a social account that is accessible on both your Android device and your iPhone.

Subway Surfers, for instance, allows you to sync your game data with a social account. So when you switch from an Android device to an iPhone, you could choose to transfer game data over to your iPhone and continue from where you left off on your Android device.

If you have games that solely work with an Apple account, you have got no way to transfer their data unfortunately. The only way you can play those games on your new iPhone is by installing a fresh copy of the game and starting from the beginning. It’s a little bit hard but that’s the only option you have got sadly.

The following shows how to transfer game data from Android to iPhone, for example, Subway Surfers, with social media accounts such as Facebook. Keep reading and learn more on it.

Step 1On your Android device, launch the game and tap on the Play with friends option. It will come up when you have finished at least one mission in the game.

Step 2Follow the on-screen instructions to link your game profile with your Facebook account. It should be easy and quick.

Step 3On your iPhone, install the same game and tap on the Play with friends option. Then, log-in to your Facebook account and you will see all of your game data on your Android phone is synced on your iPhone.

While the above method is very limited and only works with a few games, it at least lets you transfer something than nothing with regards to games on your devices. If you have any other games that use a Facebook or any other social media account, feel free to use the above method to transfer your game data over to your iPhone.

The Bottom Line

This is all about how to transfer game data from Android to iPhone. Transferring game data from Android to iPhone is not as easy as transferring other files. Fortunately though, there are a few games that support data transfer with the help of social media account. Hope this guide could provide you with some help.
