Every September, Apple would release a new series of iPhone as well as a new iOS system. In 2019, the iPhone 11 series is the one that will come to us. The most attractive feature of the iPhone 11 series is the upgrade of the camera. The new iPhone added a night mode for the camera, which provides better pictures in a dark environment. And iPhone 11 pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max are designed with a triple 12MP/4K camera.

After the new iPhone was released, a big portion of users would like to try the new one. Among which a huge part is Android users. For Android users, how to sync content from Android to iPhone is one thing they need to concern before set up the new iPhone. Here in this post, we will focus on the syncing of text messages. The following guide shows two of those ways for you to do the messaging migration process on your devices.

Method 1. Transfer SMS Messages from Android to iPhone with Move to iOS

To make it easier for Android users to switch to an iPhone, Apple has released an app called Move to iOS. What the app does is it allows you to migrate certain kinds of data including text messages from your Android device over to your iPhone.

To use this app to transfer data from Android to iPhone, you have to erase data on your iPhone. Besides, you cannot transfer data selectively via Move to iOS. And it only supports users to transfer limited data categories. Want to avoid these troublesome situations? Method 2 can be a better option.

Check out our detailed steps below to learn how to use the app to transfer messages from Android to iPhone free:

Step 1. The app requires an iPhone that has not been set up yet. If yours is already set up, you need to unset it by going to Settings > General > Reset and tap on Erase All Content and Settings. It will reset your device.

Step 2. Once your iPhone is reset, boot-it up and follow the setup procedure until you get to the apps & data screen > Tap on Move Data from Android.
