- Erase Your Old Phone. It’s important to completely erase your private data from your phone when you get rid of it.

Again, this is another fantastic method for transferring data between an iPhone and a Samsung mobile phone and if you’re worried about data loss, using either of the programs that we’ve discussed today will eliminate any data being lost.
Transferring Application Data
Unfortunately, regardless of which method you use (whether it’s on this list or not), you aren’t able to transfer app data from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy Note 8. This is because iOS app data is not compatible with Android devices.
The reason for this is the same reason that application developers have to create separate apps for Android and iOS. Both platforms handle apps differently so if you try to transfer app data from iPhone to Android, the app data won’t be compatible.
On the other hand, TunesGo allows you to install multiple applications at once, so if you take a list of the applications that are installed on your iPhone, you can easily install them onto your Android device.
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, make sure that you take a backup of your iPhone’s data before you use any of the methods that we’ve discussed. This secures your data, and while it’s unlikely that your data will be corrupted, it’s better to be safe than sorry.

When it comes to transferring data, the best programs to use are TunesGo and MobileTrans. If you’ve used one of the methods that we’ve taught you above to learn how to transfer data from iPhone to Samsung Galaxy Note 8, make sure that you check out some of the other features that both of the programs have to offer – you won’t regret it.
