iPhone 6 to Xperia XZ premium

Hi  

I have been trying to transfer data from Iphone 6 to Xperia XZ premium since last 3 days but couldnt get through.following are the various method i tried. 

1)  using icloud --> even though iphone back up is enabled, get a pop up and says there is nothing on the i cloud. enable the backup on the phone.

2)  took the back from i tunes and tried to upload the back up using sony companion using windows PC.  i get a message saying failure to transfer data.

3) using xperia transfer mobile app from the phone, i have a OTG cable of samsung as sony OTG cable did not come in the package it gets stuck on step 2 - pair devices evn though i click on i trust pop up on iphone. it doesnt move ahead. 

 

anyone have successfully trasnferred from iphone to sony, please your opinion would be really usuful. 

thanks 

Krunal

to better assist you have you been successful on transferring anything? maybe just the contacts?

Hi @KrunalC,

 

From my personal experience:

 

photos: you can use dropbox or some apps like that to upload all your photos in your iphone first. then download them into your XZP.

 

Contacts: you can use some apps like "Tencent Sync". Install it on both your iPhone andXZP. then just launch it, the app will guide you how to transfer the contract to your XZP.

 

Calendar: you can use google account/Microsoft account login both your iphone and XZP, then Sync the calendar. 

 

Anyother data(Files,music), also you can try to use the dropbox or some apps like that.

On your iphone setup your google account.

 

Tranfer your contact to google.

 

Setup Google photos, where it will backup all your pics to your google account.

 

Then on your sony just login to your google account and voila! Everything will be there.

Yes I migrated from an iPhone. I made a local backup on my mac and then used the desktop-companion to transfer the backup to the phone. Worked great. I had problems with the mobile-app too, since it wanted to login to iCloud using the 2 way verification and loaded until infinity after putting the numbers in.

Trying coolmuster mobile transfer to help you transfer data from Iphone 6 to Xperia XZ premium. Usually, data like contacts, text messages, videos, photos, books, etc can be easily transferred between them.
