How to Copy all Data from Android Phone to iPhone 5, 4S, 4 :

Transfer Calendars and Contacts from Android to iPhone: 

There are two methods to transfer calendar dates and contacts. Each method depends on the way the information is stored into the Android phone.

Method if the local data is synchronized with a Google account online:

  1. Open up Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars on the iPhone
  2. Make a new ‘Microsoft Exchange account’
  3. Input the details which include the login info and the email. If you have a domain for an actual ME server, enter it. Gmail users can skip entering it.
  4. Choose ‘Server’ > put “m.google.com” for Gmail, or input the ME server address
  5. Choose what you want to import (calendars, contacts, mail, reminders etc.) on the final screen > select Accept.

If the data is in the local memory of the Android device

  1. On the android, open the Contacts app > tap the menu key > select Import/ Export.
  2. Choose the option to “Export to SD Card” (by default it should save as 0001.vcf).
  3. Connect the SD card to the PC (through a USB cable/ phone/ card reader). From the SD card, copy the .vcf file from the SD card onto the desktop
  4. Open the Gmail account and choose contacts from the drop down menu in the upper left corner of the screen. From the More Actions menu bar, choose Import. Choose the .vcf file and import it.

How to Transfer Media files? 

There are a few options in this one. iTunes can be used if the transfer is just for photos and videos form Android to iPhone:

  1. Plug in the Android device to the computer and using Outlook or Exchange, Sync it.
  2. Now unplug it, and connect the iPhone with a Wi-Fi or a USB cable. Open iTunes.
  3. Choose “Sync with iPhone”. Choose the things desired to be imported on the phone, apps, audio etc., and let iTunes do the rest.

Keep the data you keep in the cloud as it is, while iOS apps can be downloaded for storage lockers like Evernote, Dropbox and Amazon Cloud Player, allowing the data to sync automatically.Google Play data may not transfer, and there’s a fee on iOS. However, the music can be uploaded manually with iTunes to the iPhone.

How to Transfer Apps? 

This is important. Apps like Instagram, Foursquare etc. can be duplicated on the App Store, but what about the apps you paid for, will you pay them again?You can just call or email the customer service and explain them that you’ve already paid for the Android version and are simply switching the operating system. Tell them, you don’t want to stop the using the app just because of a few dollars. If you are polite, then you be in lock. But be careful, if you can buy a new phone, for them an app for you won’t be a big cost.

Buying Cheap iPhone 5 Lighting Cables will not work – Warning

Buying Cheap iPhone 5 Lighting Cables will not work – Warning ! Apple introduced iPhone 5 with completely new smaller dock connector called “Lightning”.

Have you just got an iPhone 5 and looking for buying a new lightning cable which may cost you hefty $30. Well, we have already posted that you can get many cheap charging cables from “Amazon” and “EBay”.

Are you planning Buying Cheap iPhone 5 Lighting Cables ? Hold on, Read this post first!

Buying Cheap iPhone 5 Lighting Cables

As posted by Gizmodo, Double Helix Cables told that there is an authentication chip inside the Apple Official “lightning” cable and cheap third party Cable probably won’t work without this chip. This awkward chip is placed between the power pin of the lightning cable and the USB contact of the cord. And this chip is the basic key which will prevent working of other third party cables with new smaller dock port.

Buying Cheap iPhone 5 Lighting Cables Will not work – Warning !

Buying Cheap iPhone 5 Lighting Cables

There’s another thing, basically this chip doesn’t block and data lines, however, data and power cable should be connected by the USB cable.  Here’s what peter from Double Helix Cables told:

This could mean that it’s less nefarious than a authentication system, that it’s just for power regulation – but it looks like a serious microcontroller of some sort, it doesn’t look like a garden variety voltage regulator that I’ve ever seen. It has a mirror-finish shiny metal exterior with lasered numbers on it, it does not look like a generic black IC. If it really costs $3.50 for a lightning plug, then it could be something quite high tech. Whatever it is, it’s expensive and highly miniaturized. And the cable isn’t going to function without it, that I can tell at this point.

The main thing which we learned from this news is that one can’t simply make a cable by copying a cable of same shape and connectivity. So, if you are planning to buy any cheap cables for $10 or $20, don’t buy it.  Because you might end up with non-functioning cable. Simply head over to Apple Store to buy a genuine cable for $30 or wait for anyone who can manage to make a perfectly working third-party cable for iPhone 5.
