This video and article will show you how to transfer data, such as clips, messages and contacts from your iPhone to Android device.

Getting a new phone is great. But there is always the problem of moving your data from your old phone to your new one. I have done a few transfer videos before however this changes year on year depending which model phone you have. So this is the 2019 version which will hopefully make it an easy process.

Step 1 – Back up your iPhone to icloud

The first step is to backup your data to iCloud. You can do this by going into Settings and at the top sign into iCloud with your Apple ID. You want to make a backup of your data before you move to the next step. Also now is a good time to get rid of any data you don’t want moved over to your Android phone. In your iCloud account setting go through and toggle off anything you don’t want. Lastly go onto the iCloud.com website and check your data has been backed up. Very Important!

step 2 – use smart switch app to download data from icloud to your android device.

If you don’t have smart switch on your phone already you can pick up this app from play.google.com. Direct link here. Go through the options. Bring data to your new phone. Next select the WIFI option and make sure both phones are on your WIFI.

You can also use a cable if you prefer. An option should now come up asking you to Get Connected. Choose the device you want however in this video we choose iPhone/iPad. Next put in your Apple ID. Select the data that you want to download from iCloud. Simply press Import and you are done.

iOS 12, Is it faster? Benchmark & Features

iOS 12, Is it faster? Benchmark & Features

Hi guys Matt from 123myit here and in this video I will go over Apples iOS 12, Is it faster? we will find out.

Ok Guys I heard that Apple latest iOS 12 update should improve device performance rather than slow it down. So I thought I would give this upgrade a shot and test it on my older iPhone 5s and see if I notice any better performance along with checking out the new iOS 12 features.

Before upgrading I ran the Benchmark and you can see the result below with iOS 11.2.

iOS 12, Is it faster?

The results from iOS 11.2 were as follows:
Single core score, 1261
Multi cord score, 2157

To upgrade your iPhones iOS to 12 you can do this by going into Settings > Software update.
And you will read in the update information it states iOS 12 brings performance improvements and exciting new features.

Below is a picture of the Benchmark result after the upgrade to iOS 12. As you can see the Benchmark does confirm Apples claims to being faster.

iOS 12, is it faster 2

The results from iOS 12 were as follows:
Single core score, 1308
Multi cord score, 2169

For me personally I think this is a welcomed change from Apple who was always the company seen to slow down the older devices to force customers to upgrade their iOS device. Right now this means you might get a little bit more use out of older devices which is fantastic news, however lets see what happens when Apple releases iOS 13. Will they delivery the same positive boost?

Other features that have been added to iOS 12:

Notification’s screen.
Battery usage.
Measurement screen ar kit leveler tool
New animal emojis koala and t-rex
Create your own emojis
Screen time how you are using iOS device
Limits on apps
Downtime app limits
Content and privacy restrictions
