After creating a guide that teaches you how to easily move from iPhone to Android, Re/code is back with a similar article that shows you what you have to do to port your precious data, including contacts, music library and photo collection to iOS from Android.

The only problem when making such switches is related to apps. You can’t just hope to download the same paid apps you had on Android once you move to iPhone. All the premium apps you purchased from Google must be bought again from the App Store on the iPhone.

However, many of the popular online services you’re currently using have free-to-download apps readily available on most smartphone platforms, and they will only need your credentials to provide the same functionality.

As for contacts and calendar, music and photos, you simply have to follow a few easy steps (for some procedures there are plenty of different avenues to take) in order to transfer data. Re/code’s step-by-step guide of switching from Android to iPhone is available at the source link, complete with screenshots to help you along the way.
