Q: I used to have an Android phone with a lot of important messages. These messages relate to my current data credentials. Recently I switched to a new iPhone, but I now need to migrate all the important SMS messages from my old phone to the new one, while I have trouble in how I can transfer the SMS from my Android phone to the new iPhone.
A: With AirDrop you can quickly, easily, and securely share files between iPhones, iPads, and Macs. While data and files transfer between totally different mobile operating systems can be cumbersome, just like Android and iOS. So connecting the two devices through a third-party program can completely solve this tough problem.
