Apple and Google Simplify Photo Transfer from Android to iOS

Moving from Android to iOS, or vice versa, often comes with many challenges, one of which is transferring years of accumulated photos and videos. As early as 2021, a service was launched allowing users to transfer photos from iCloud Photos to Google Photos, and now there’s an option to do the reverse.

The collaboration between Apple and Google is part of the Data Transfer Project, an open-source initiative aimed at facilitating data transfers between different online platforms. Transferring photos and videos from Google Photos to iCloud Photos will soon be available to users in over 240 countries and regions within the coming week.

Importantly, this process does not remove data from Google Photos. The transfer occurs directly from one cloud service to another, eliminating the need to locally download photos and videos. Depending on the volume, the process can take anywhere from a few hours to several days.

To transfer photos and videos from Google Photos to iCloud Photos, follow these steps:

  1. Launch the “Google Archiver.”
  2. Click “Get Started,” granting the necessary permissions.
  3. Select “Apple – iCloud Photos” as the destination service for data transfer.
  4. Authenticate using your Apple ID.
  5. Authorize the data transfer.

For more detailed instructions on transferring, visit Apple and Google’s respective websites.
