Given the hardware and design of Samsung’s latest phones in the form of the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge, it probably wouldn’t come as a complete surprise if iPhone users were tempted by the design and features to jump ship. In fact more than a few probably did, but for those who are holding back because of the difference in platform, Samsung is here to make your life easier.
The company has recently launched their Smart Switch feature which is basically a way for iOS users to transfer all their data from their iOS device onto their brand new Galaxy S6/S6 Edge handsets. Smart Switch itself is an app (downloadable via Google Play) that users will have to download onto their Samsung Galaxy S devices, and from there users can choose a variety of methods to transfer said data.
For example if you’re an iOS user who has primarily backed up their data in iCloud, the Smart Switch website provides instructions on how to transfer that to your new phone. There are also methods of transferring via iTunes or via a cable, depending on your preference. Last but not least there is also a method for transferring from one Android handset to the other.
