Google has made it even easier to switch from an iPhone to an Android phone using Google Drive.
The company updated its Switch portal to reflect the Drive update, which can be downloaded onto the iPhone and used to back up all pertinent content, including contacts, calendar events, and photos & videos, to their respective places.
While Drive itself doesn't store all of the data, it uses Google's cross-platform prowess to upload contacts, calendar events, images and videos to Google Contacts, Calendar and Photos, respectively. Previously, users had to manually perform the backups through those apps; now, Drive does it for you.
Then, once the backup is complete, signing into a new Android phone with the same account will restore the data to its rightful place. The service even backs up iCloud entries.
This also applies to the Google Pixel, though that phone comes with its own adapter to transfer content directly from an iPhone to Google's new flagship.
