Apple has released a guide for Android users transitioning to iPhone 6

A lot of people are impressed with the iPhone 6, and Apple certainly has high hopes for both models. So much so that it’s created a guide for the waves of Android users who are no doubt going to be flocking to the phone once it’s actually released. The guide includes instructions on transferring Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Photos, Videos, Music, Books, Documents, and Apps as well as highlighting a number of third-party apps that will help them get the job done.

The guide recommends a number of iOS features that can make the process easy and simple for those betraying the Android cause, and mentions third party apps for handling things that iOS itself is unable to do. As for the apps you had previously, since there is no cross-platform compatibility you’re just going to have to download them again and start from scratch.

To do so Apple recommends this process:

You’ll probably find the apps you’re already using on the App Store. Go to the App Store, search for the apps you have now, and install them. Then sign in with your user name and password.

Because apparently some people don’t know how app stores work.

Apple published the guide yesterday, ahead of today’s iOS 8 launch, and Fridays iPhone 6 release date. The fact that it took the time to creat such an extensive guide for transferring from Android to iOS means that it is expecting a number of users to ditch Google in favour of Apple products — regardless of the superior hardware specs that are available on a number of Android devices.
