Connect

Connect your old iPhone® or Android device to your new Pixel with the Quick Switch Adapter.*

Switching from iPhone? Turn off iMessage before you remove the SIM on your old device by going to "Settings," tap "Messages" and set iMessage to off. Then, go to back to "Settings," tap "FaceTime" and set FaceTime to off.

If you have already removed the SIM, you can request that Apple deregister your phone number with iMessage. Learn more.

Tip: Make sure the battery on your new Pixel is charged to at least 50% before connecting.
*Compatible with most phones running Android 5.0 and up, and iOS 8 and up.
Sign in

Switching from iPhone? Sign in to your Google Account. If you don't already have one, you'll be asked to create one.

Switching from Android? Your new Pixel should automatically sign you in to your Google Account, but if not, simply enter your password.

Tip: If you have a Google Account but are having trouble signing in, get help at google.com/accounts/recovery.
Transfer

Once you’ve signed in to your Google Account, choose what you want to move, like your apps, contacts, calendar events, photos, videos, music, SMS messages, iMessages® and more. Then sit back and let Pixel do the work.

Supported devices include:

  • iPhone or iPad running iOS 8 and up
  • Nexus 5, 6, 5X, 6P running Android 5.0 and up
  • Most Android devices running Android 5.0 and up
Tip: You can continue to finish setting up your new Pixel while your data is being copied from your old device.
App matching is supported for over 40,000 free iOS apps. Some third-party data may not be transferred automatically. Learn more.
