How to Transfer Photos from Android to iPhone

Naturally, you will want to make the shift to your new flashy iPhone will all your memories (in photos, videos, memes, and GIFs) from your old Android. So what’s the best way to go at it?

1. Google Photos aka Google Drive

You have to hand it out to cloud storage, it is accessible via any device. That is as long as you have an internet connection. As it works out, each time you take a photo on an Android device, the Google Photos app backs it up to the cloud (Google Drive). You can later access these photos from any device (or any platform) as long as you have an internet connection.

All you need to do is head on to, and get all photos and videos that were successfully backed up to the cloud. Take note, photos you took and were not backed up will remain locally on your Android device. Until you get an internet connection and the backup process takes place successfully.

Therein lies a big problem. What if backing up tens or even hundreds of MBs in photos is not an option for you. That could be due to a myriad of reasons including poor internet connection, or expensive internet connection. Actually, a lot of people don’t use the backup feature on Google Photos app simply because they are on a metered connection. To avoid maxing up their mobile data plan, they hardly use the feature.
