Three Ways to Transfer iPhone Data to Google Pixel XL

The Google Pixel XL, along with the Google Pixel, is the first phone 'made [almost entirely] by Google', and it’s the best way to experience the latest and greatest that Android software has to offer. Google's two new phones are nearly identical. The only hardware differences are the XL's larger, sharper display (with a higher pixel density) and bigger battery. It puts the immense power of Google search behind everything you do with the all-new Google Assistant, a context-understanding AI that’s often smarter than Siri and Cortana.

So if you are wondering which Android phone is worth buying, the Pixel and Pixel XL can be a very good option. When you finally switch your iPhone to the Pixel and Pixel XL, the next important thing is moving your old phone data to the Pixel and Pixel XL effortlessly.
