So, you've been using your Sony Xperia Android phone for years and you're thinking of upgrading to a new iPhone 11 (Pro, Pro Max). Replacing a cell phone is pretty easy, then what? Perhaps your favorite video clips and movie files are still stored in the old Sony Xperia device that you want to move over to the new iPhone 11? There's no reason to worry.

Just like other types of data, we have put together 5 effective ways here to help you transfer videos on Sony Xperia to iPhone 11 (Pro, Pro Max). Here's how.

Method 1. Sync videos with Move to iOS

Apple offers an data migration app named Move to iOS, the Apple's first Android app, allowing users to achieve seamless switching from Android to iOS devices. It comes with a simple, user-friendly interface that steps you through the process. It shows all the types of files on the screen of the app. You just need to tap the data you want to begin the transfer.

Here we'll show you the full migration process on sending videos from Sony Xperia to iPhone 11, which involves pairing the two devices together. Let's begin.
