Switching from iPhone? Let’s get started.
Transfer works for iOS 8.0 and up. Here’s what you’ll need:
1
The Quick Switch Adapter that came with your Pixel.
2
The SIM ejection tool that came with your Pixel.
3
Your old phone’s charging cable.
4
Both your old phone and Pixel need to be charged to at least 50%.
Turn iMessage® off.
If your SIM card is still in your iPhone, disable iMessage by going to Settings > Messages and set iMessage to off. Then go to Settings > FaceTime and turn FaceTime off. If you’ve already inserted your SIM card into your Pixel, you can request that Apple deregister your number with iMessage by going here.
Encrypted backups.
If you turned on backup encryption for your iPhone in the iTunes® application on your computer, copying to your Pixel will be limited. You can turn off backup encryption by doing the following:
1
On your computer, start iTunes.
2
Connect your iPhone to your computer.
3
Go to the Summary tab for your iPhone. Uncheck Encrypt iPhone Backup.
4
When asked, give the backup encryption password. Wait while iTunes does a backup with encryption off.
5
Disconnect your iPhone.
Managed device.
If your iPhone is managed by a business, school, or other organization, your copying may be limited. Find out if this is the case by doing the following:
1
Open Settings and then General and then Profiles & Device Management.
2
Under the device name, look for policy profiles from your organization.
3
To increase what you can transfer, you can remove these profiles. This can affect your access to your organization's information.
Insert your SIM
It all starts with the SIM. Here’s what to do:
1
Open your old phone’s SIM tray and remove your current SIM card.
2
Open the SIM tray of your Pixel on the top left edge of the phone using the SIM ejection tool that was included in the box.
3
Insert the SIM card to your Pixel. Once inserted, it may take a few seconds to activate. If you haven’t already, you can now turn on your Pixel.
Connect your Pixel to Wi-Fi
Once you have the SIM in place and your Pixel turned on, find an available Wi-Fi network and join it.
