Device Data

Back up the data from your device to either a desktop computer or the cloud. On Apple iOS, use iCloud to back up your phone to the cloud or use iTunes to back it up to your computer. This allows you to recover any data if the device is lost, stolen, or needs to be factory reset. Google also provides a way to back up your Android phone data to Google's servers. That way, you can always restore any device from that backup. Some Android vendors provide a way to back up your device's data to your desktop, but it is based on the vendor of your device. For example, Samsung provides a software application called Kies.

Migrating from Android to iOS or iOS to Android can seem like a daunting task because everything from the software, to the apps, to the phone itself is different. Whether you're making the switch for your personal device, or your employer is providing a new device for work, you'll want to make sure you're set up for success on the new operating system. Again, this may seem daunting, but it doesn't have to be.

Today, cloud and software can communicate with different devices, making the migration a little less scary. This also applies if you use both platforms simultaneously and want your life available across your entire ecosystem of devices. Click through the slideshow to understand the steps you can take when making the switch from one operating system to the other, as identified by Andrew Blaich, lead security analyst at Bluebox Security.
