Have questions about switching? Here are some common ones.Is it easy to switch from Apple to Google Pixel?
Switching to Pixel from iPhone is easier than ever. All you have to do is connect your old iPhone with your new Pixel, and follow the prompts on the screen. In about 30 minutes, your selected data – like contacts, photos, and messages – will copy to your new Pixel. Can I copy data from iPhone to Google Pixel?
When you set up your Pixel, you can safely transfer data from iPhone® to Google Pixel, including photos, videos, contacts, iMessages®, texts, WhatsApp® messages, apps, notes, call history, and more. After initial setup, you can copy other photos and videos you have stored in iCloud® to Google Photos.Will I have to repurchase my apps or subscriptions?
Most apps automatically copy over when switching from iPhone® to Pixel. If you have subscription services (like Spotify® or Apple Music®), just sign in to your account on your Pixel and you’ll see all your data in that app. And if you paid for apps or games, app developers can help you transfer them to your new phone.What will I do without my favourite iOS apps?
Pixel has comparable equivalents to your favourite iOS apps. Instead of iMessage, Pixel has Messages – an AI-powered messaging app that learns how you communicate and offers helpful suggestions. An alternative to AirDrop® on Google Pixel is Nearby Share, so you can keep sharing files with friends near you. Will it be harder to communicate with people who still use iPhone?
Pixel helps you keep in touch with anyone, regardless of the phone they use. With the Messages app, you can send and see reactions and emojis from friends who use iMessages®, and you can start or be part of any group text. You can also enjoy common group messaging apps like WhatsApp® and Facebook Messenger that work across any OS.What about video calls? Can I FaceTime® with Google Pixel?
Pixel users can easily make video calls through Google Meet®, WhatsApp®, Facebook Messenger, and many other communication apps. You can also join FaceTime® on Pixel if someone sends you a link.Can I still share my location with friends and family, and see their locations?
With Pixel, you can share locations with family and friends using Google Maps, which you may already use. With Location Sharing, you can choose who gets to see your location and how long to share it with them. What should I do before switching from iPhone® to Google Pixel?
Switching is a great time to do a bit of spring cleaning – you can use this opportunity to review old photos or clean up your contacts. Everything else comes in the box with your new Pixel. All you need is the SIM card from your old phone.
You won’t lose a beat when you switch to Pixel, whether you’re on iPhone® or Android. Find out more here.
