What Move to iOS Fails

1.Only a new iPhone, iPad, or iPod can be available to it. If your iOS device is already set up, you need to restore it to the factory settings firstly.

2.It can only work under Wi-Fi. Cellular data, or no network is unallowed. Besides both Android and iOS device have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi.

3.It won’t bring your apps over, of course, but it also doesn’t attempt to find the same app in the App Store. You’ll have to go fetch those manually, which may get tedious.

4.Most time, transferring process cannot start, or be stuck there forever. Mainly they are related to Wi-Fi disconnection, so you need to turn your Android to Airplane Mode. Besides, there are many other Move to iOS not working problems, according to thousands of user’s feedback.

5.There are no words to notice users how many items are already transferred, and many items are left behind without notification.
