Samsung Smart Switch is a mobile app that automatically transfers a variety of personal information to Samsung Galaxy phones from mobile devices made by other manufacturers. The app is only needed on the Samsung Galaxy when connecting by cable to an iPhone or iPad.
When connecting to an Android device, the app must be installed on both devices. The app is freely available from the Google Play Store or the Galaxy Apps Store. Content that is transferred includes contacts, photos, documents and compatible apps. Messages, music and videos cannot be transferred from iPhones. Content that is stored on microSD cards and other external devices also cannot be transferred.
