How to Transfer Contacts from Sony Xperia to iPhone
For a frequent smartphone switcher, it can be quite a big task to move a large array of files from one phone to another, especially between different operating systems. While users can make use of a USB connector to seamlessly transfer most types of data between Android phones, transferring content between an iPhone and an Android phone can be a little tricky. In this article, a guide will show you how to make a quick transfer of text messages from Huawei phone to iPhone.
Huawei is a great mobile phone to use, but now you're planning on switching to iPhone. As you are preparing to abandon your old Huawei Android device for a brand-new iPhone, it is worth considering how to transfer all your text messages from Huawei's inbox to iPhone.
There's a number of ways that let you migrate text messages between the two platforms, but perhaps the easiest way is use a professional data migrating app like Phone Transfer. It provides a quick way to migrate all your data between Android and iOS, including messages, contacts, photos, videos, tracks and more. What's more, you can use it to back up your data to the computer and restore them to your device when necessary.
If you plan to sell your old Huawei to get some cash for the new iPhone, the best bet is to wipe out the data permanently. Its Mac version has another feature called "Erase your old phone", which is used to rid your device of anything private to protect against information leakage.
