iOS to Android: Photos

Google+ Photos is a great way to have all your pics – past and future – in one place, with unlimited private storage* and accessible from any Internet connected device. There are always lots more choices on Google Play to find the photo app that works perfectly for you.

*Only photos over 2048 x 2048 pixels and videos longer than 15 minutes count against your 15 GB of free storage.

  1. On your iPhone, download the Google+ app from the App Store.
  2. Open Google+ and sign in using your Google account (i.e. your Gmail address and password).
  3. Select "Auto-Backup" for your photos by selecting the menu icon, followed by the gear icon in the top right. Now go to "Camera and Photos", touch "Auto-Backup" and switch it on.
  4. Sit back as all your photos are being saved to the cloud.
  5. Open the Photos app on your new Android device to see all of your photos from your iPhone or iPad.

Transfer through iTunes:
