Transfer Data iPhone to Pixel 4 – 2020

Hi Guys and welcome to 123myit, in this video I will show you how to Transfer your data from iPhone to Pixel 4. Ok guys in this video we will show you the official way to transfer all your data from iPhone to Pixel 4. This is helpful if you just got your Pixel 4 phone and you want to move all your Texts ,Messages,  contacts, calendars, photos, videos, free apps and music to your Pixel 4.

Ok guys lets get started. If you have a new pixel 4 then you will see this start screen. However if you have already setup your phone then you will need to reset the Pixel 4 back to factory defaults.

System and Advanced

We can do this under settings > System and Advanced. Just remember if already have data on your Pixel phone this will wipe that data. So make sure you backup that data before doing the factory reset. Under reset options now and we want to tap on Erase all data. Go ahead and Erase all data again and confirm it.

Alright that will set your Pixel 4 back to factory defaults and you will be able to start the Transfer from iPhone. Also guys I get asked this question all the time will it transfer App Data. The answer is No unless it’s a cloud based App that stores your data for you. Will it transfer Paid apps. Again the answer is no. iPhone and Android are two different platforms. Having said that I am sure there is 3rd party apps out there that might do it, however that’s not part of this video.

Alright so we are back at the Start screen so just hit Start. Now if you have your sim you can put it In now. Otherwise you can hit skip. You don’t need a sim to Transfer data. Next connect your WIFI. This is important because the Pixel 4 will download the updated Transfer software.

Once connected the Pixel will check for that software I mentioned. Ok just tap next. And tap next again and then it will ask you for your old phone. Make sure you remove your passcode or any security features on your iPhone. You will also need your old phone cable.

Using the USB to USB C Adapter

iPhone to pixel 4
Use the USB to USB C cable to connect the two phones.

The Pixel 4 should have a USB to USB C adapter plug the other end into your old phone USB cable and then plug the adapter end into your Pixel 4. Now go ahead and plug both phones into each other to start the transfer. You can sign into google if you want or just skip it. And just tap Trust of your iPhone if it prompts on your screen. Alright phones are connected tap Next. You can enter your Google account or just hit skip. Ok right now the Pixel 4 will check what data you have on your iPhone that it can transfer. Ok cool, the Pixel 4 will give you a summary of what you can transfer. Just untick any data that you don’t want to transfer and tap copy. Also if you copying fails, try this method again but maybe try a small transfer first like contacts. Double check you don’t have any security options like passcodes that could block the transfer. Congratulations you just copied your data tap on next and unplug your phones. Follow the prompts of your phone.

Your Pixel 4 should show you a confirmation of the data you have copied. Alright you all done. Check your data and you are good to go. Also guys don’t forget to check out my other videos such as Pixel 4 unboxing and first look. And do me a favour hit the subscribe button and smash the bell icon.

Hi guys and welcome to 123, in this video I will show you how to remove the passcode from iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. This is helpful if you have Forgotten Passcode on iPad, iPhone or iPod.

Ok guys so have completely forgotten your passcode and you need to remove it from your device. How painful it can be to have Forgotten Passcode on iPad, iPhone or iPod? Apple recommends two ways to remove your passcode. However, this will erase any data on your iPad, iPhone or iPod so I recommend trying to remember you passcode first. Because If you have backed up your device via iCloud or iTunes then you will be able to restore your data and settings after restoring your device.

Check iCloud first

Alright the first way to remove the passcode is if you have added your iPad, iPhone or iPod to iCloud backup and find my iPhone. Once you are on the iCloud.com page login with your Apple ID.

And then click on find iPhone. Click on All devices at the top and you should see your iPad, iPhone or iPod that you want to restore. If you don’t see your device there then you will have to fast forward the video to the second option of restoring your device.

Forgotten Passcode on iPad
Erase your device with iCloud if you have it added to iCloud.

Here I have my iPhone 11 Pro and I will click Erase iPhone. This will restore your iPad, iPhone or IPod back to factory defaults. But remember that this will also erase any data on the device so be sure you want to do this. Next up enter your Apple ID and password and enter your secret questions. On the Erase iPhone menu click Next and then Done. And you will a message that states your erase has started.

Setup your device as new

Ok go a head now and start setting up your device again from scratch. Your passcode will be gone now. If your get activation lock you can enter your Apple ID or click the remove from account button in iCloud then go back on your device and the activation lock won’t come up once you have removed the account from iCloud. If you cant get past activation lock. You will need to take your device to Apple with proof of purchase. Follow the prompts to setup your iPad, iPhone or iPod. Your Passcode is now gone.

And there you have it you have removed you passcode.

If you haven’t Added your iPad, iPhone or iPod to iCloud then you will need to restore your device via iTunes. So you will need a computer with iTunes.

Recovery Mode

You will need to put your device into recovery mode and here’s how to do it for the different models. So for my iPhone 11 I just hold down the side button and plug it into my computer. Once done correctly you should see the restore screen.

But on your computer you iTunes should come up with a restore option. Click Restore and then Restore and update. Click next on software update.

In the top right hand corner of iTunes you should see the software start to download the new iOS for your iPad, iPhone or iPod. If you are using Mac OS Catalina the process is the same.  Click on Go and then computer.  Find your iPad, iPhone or iPod. Click ok and then hit restore. Again click restore and update. Click Next and Agree and your software will start to download.

Slow Internet?

If you are on a slow internet connection, your device might restart itself and you will have to put it back in Restore mode again. So once the download has finished it will extract and start to restore your iPad, iPhone or iPod.

You should now see a message that your device has been restored. However your device will restart itself and your passcode will be gone. Just go ahead and setup your device again. Congratulations you now have removed your passcode.
