Here we take data migrating process from iPhone to an Motorola handset (Moto Z Force Droid, Z, Z Droid, Z Play, G⁴, whatever) for instance and show you step by step how to use the tool.

Step 1: Plug your Moto and iPhone into the computer and open Phone Transfer

Launch Phone Transfer on computer (here we take a Mac for example). And connect your both iPhone and Motorola to the computer through USB cable.

Once you open the program, you will see four modules are available on the main interface. For moving content (contacts, music, messages, photos, etc.) from iPhone over to Motorola and vice versa, we select Phone to Phone Transfer module and move on to the next screen.

You will notice the two devices are displayed on both side of the screen, as you can see in the screenshot below. If not, try connecting again or click Cannot recognize the device link to fix the issue.

Remember to put your Motorola phone on a debugging mode to authorize data access. If you don't have a clue how to do this, please refer to How to Enable USB Debugging Mode on Android article; and for iPhone tap Trust on home screen to proceed.

Step 2: Select transferable items from scan list

After you have two devices connected, you'll see a list of transferrable files from iPhone's internal storage, including contacts, text messages, calendar, photos, music, call logs and other in the conter pane of the screen.

Just select the data types you want to migrate by ticking the boxes next to the items, In this example, we have selected all transferable items. You can also erase files from your Motorola smartphone (if you've already use it) to make room for more stuff by clicking the "Clear data before copy" option in the bottom right corner of the window.

On the top the Flip button is offered to switch the two devices if in the opposite position.

Note: Call logs and Apps is not in the transferable list if you're switching from Motorola to an iPhone.

Step 3: Start moving selected sorts of data to Motorola from iPhone

Now comes the easy part. All left to do is press Start Copy button on the bottom center of the window and let Phone Transfer do the rest. This is the part where you'll need to be patient. To maintain data integrity, please avoid disconnection in the process of data migrating between your iPhone and Motorola smartphone.

The migrating process will take a while from seconds to minutes depending on the scale of the data types you select as well as the transferring speed. After the process is completed, disconnect both your Motorola phone and iPhone from the computer.

Done!
